Environmental Noise is one of the fastest growing areas of noise monitoring, mapping and control. The EU has introduced a number of Directives aimed at increasing the level of information about Environmental Noise across the EU. In 1996, data from the EU Green Paper on Future Noise Policy estimated that around 20% of the EU`s population, or close to 80 million people, suffer from noise levels that experts consider to be unacceptable. Most of these people become annoyed and suffer from sleep deprivation, which experts fear will lead to adverse health effects. An additional 170 million citizens are now living in so-called "grey areas" where the noise levels cause serious annoyance during the daytime.
