Abstract : Noise environments within the DeHavilland C-7A 'Caribou' during various phases of ground and airborne operation are illustrated and described. Noise profiles are provided to identify and describe exposures to noise encountered by unprotected personnel at different occupied locations in the C-7A during takeoff, climb, and cruise. Features of aeromedical significance are also identified and discussed. (Author)
