Abstract : The community noise intrusion resulting from Offutt AFB KC 135A takeoffs was evaluated at 25 sites in and around Offutt AFB. Included in the evaluation was an area currently being considered for the construction of a multimillion dollar residential-industrial complex. Noise levels (dBA) and their duration were determined. These data were used to estimate Composite Noise Ratings (CNR's), Noise Exposure Forecasts (NEF's) and Community Noise Equivalent Levels (CNEL's) at each measurement site. Expected community response and compatible land use criteria are discussed in relation to the various noise rating values (dBA's, CNR's, NEF's, and CNEL's) calculated for each site. (Author)
