Aircraft noise modelling: migrating INM to AEDT

The Integrated Noise Model (INM) used in Australia for modelling aircraft noise has reached its final iteration and is due to be replaced over the next few years. Some differences in how noise contours are modelled in the newer AEDT application will require careful management...

The problems of setting aircraft noise limits

Earlier this month, the World Health Organisation (WHO) published its long-awaited Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region. In it, the recommended maximum annual average level for aircraft noise is lower than for other modes of transport, lower than current EU policy, and lower than...

Impact of noise guidelines for the European region

Noise is one of the top environmental risks to health, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), and a growing concern. The just-released Environmental Noise Guidelines for the European Region include environmental noise guidelines for transportation noise sources, the impact of which could be considerable...

Aircraft noise: The challenges for authorities

In this second of our three-part series on aircraft noise exposure around Europe’s largest airports, we explore some of the challenges for government authorities in balancing spatial planning and noise mitigation with the economic benefits that come from aviation industry growth. We take a closer...

Aircraft noise exposure around European airports

Our recent analysis of aircraft noise exposure revealed some important aspects to consider in dealing with the growing attention to negative effects of aviation on the environment. Our Infographic provides interesting insights for Europe’s busiest airports. In this first in a three-part series exploring the challenges,...

Navigating the politics of airport growth

Airport growth is increasingly limited by environmental restrictions. With the worldwide air traffic demand increasing, many of the world’s airports are reaching the limits of their environmental capacity. However, further development is often a political minefield. We think smart management of community relations can help. Pushing...
