Reference:CS Report 9539 Title:Review of Departure Noise Limits at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports Description:This report describes the technical studies undertaken in support of the review of departure noise limits at the London airports performed by the Department of Transport's Aircraft Noise Monitoring Advisory Committee (ANMAC). Following an analysis of a large sample of noise and radar measurements obtained from the Noise and Track-keeping Monitoring System, a modelling exercise was carried out to evaluate the effects of changes to the number and disposition of noise monitors, as well as the noise limits, on the overall performance of the system for noise infringement monitoring. On the basis of the results, ANMAC recommended increasing both the efficiency and the stringency of the present system, by extending the monitor arrays and lowering the current limits.
