The frequency and number of aircraft supporting training can occasionally generate higher volumes of noise. Additionally, atmospheric conditions can amplify aircraft noise volume and the distance sound travels.

Impulse Blast Noise Analysis Report

Advisory Cover

The adjacent image is a link to the "Impulse Blast Noise Analysis Technical Report". This document is the result of recommendations made during the Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). Implementation of several JLUS recommendations are partially dependent on the completion of this Blast Noise analysis.

The Technical Report is suitable for government staff and anyone who would like to dig deeper into the subject of military training noise at Marine Corps Base Quantico. This document is designed to allow government staff to make better informed land use decisions with regard to rezoning, special use permits, site plan reviews, etc. The report can also be used to provide land owners with a tool to help them make better choices regarding the highest and best use of their property.
