From the Back Cover
Environmental Noise Pollution: Noise Mapping, Public Health, and Policy, Second Edition, addresses the key debates surrounding environmental noise pollution using examples from across the globe. Environmental noise pollution is an emerging concern in public and environmental policy and is considered to be one of the most important environmental stressors affecting public health throughout the world. Thoroughly revised throughout, this new edition includes updated global case studies as well as new chapters on technology and noise, soundscapes and wind farm noise. This book examines environmental noise pollution, its health implications, the role of strategic noise mapping for problem assessment, major sources of environmental noise pollution, noise mitigation approaches, and related procedural and policy implications. Drawing on the authors’ considerable research expertise in the area, the book is a fully updated resource on this major environmental pollutant that crosses disciplinary, policy and national boundaries.
