Project Experience: ACRP Synthesis 16, Compilation of Noise Programs in Areas Outside DNL 65

Synthesis 16 released its Compilation of Noise Programs in Areas Outside DNL 65. The Synthesis, authored by HMMH, explores alternative actions currently used by airports to address noise outside the DNL (Day–Night Average Noise Level) 65 contour. The airport practice synthesis is available for download at: http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/acrp/acrp_syn_016.pdf.
