Recent issues concerning low frequency aircraft noise around airports (groundnoise) and a legal verdict about the application of low frequency noise criteria in the Netherlands have been the motivation to start a research commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment. One of the objectives is to investigate the possibilities of the development of a rating procedure for low frequency noise. This paper gives an overview of the nature and impact of the low frequency groundnoise on the community, based on noise measurements and the experiences of residents around the airport. Keywords : low frequency noise, rating procedure, airport groundnoise, noise measurements, annoyance
