Background: Following the recommendation from the FAA's aircraft noise impacts research workshops, federal agencies are initiating annual meetings on aviation noise impacts research. The first annual meeting will focus on the following topics: noise effects on health and welfare; noise in national parks and wilderness; aircraft noise modeling; and costs of aircraft noise on society. The Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), National Park Service (NPS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal agencies, international organizations, industry, academia, and the public will meet to discuss ongoing and future noise impacts research activities in the above areas. A product of the meeting will be an Aviation Noise Impacts Roadmap document. The document will outline key research elements, summarize current programs and projects, and identify current knowledge gaps and future research activities. The intent of the Roadmap is to define systematic, focused, and complementary research programs, so that limited resources can be more effectively pooled to advance the knowledge on how best to address the impacts of aviation noise on society.
