Abstract: This report presents three case studies which can serve as a guide for using operational changes of artillery and demolition to reduce noise impacts at Army installations. In each case study, the initial and final noise impact is documented by computer-generated equal noise contours. The operational changes which produced the reduction or shift in contours are described and their impact estimated. The case studies demonstrate, respectively: a general reduction in operations; a shift in operations away from noise sensitive areas; and a concentration of operations toward the center of the installation. The large effect night operations have on the C-weighted day and night average sound level is clearly shown by the examples. The relative importance of the larger weapons is also shown.
