Evaluating the Use of Spatially Precise Diurnal Population Data in Aviation Noise Studies

The objectives of this research are to: (1) evaluate the feasibility and potential benefits of using spatially precise, diurnal population data to improve the understanding of aviation noise effects and (2) for the most promising uses, develop practices and guidelines for incorporating these data in aviation noise-related studies (i.e., noise impact modeling; land use compatibility planning; and noise abatement, mitigation, noise complaints, and airspace analyses).
