Abstract : Noise surveys were made at the control towers of two Air Force Bases. Measurements of the indoor and outdoor sound pressure levels during aircraft take-offs and other operations were recorded. These data are presented so that an evaluation of the communication environments can be made by using certain operational data from each base. An evaluation of the noise attenuation provided by each tower is also made. (Author)
