  • Flying Eurofighter noise mapped by Brüel & Kjær

    Airbus Defence and Space and Brüel & Kjær have successfully completed noise measurements on the Eurofighter jet, to calculate its on-ground noise exposure under different thrust and flight configurations.   The noise measurements were made by repeatedly flying the jet over a Brüel & Kjær data acquisition system collecting data from a 29m diameter array of ...

  • Mapping noise pollution simply and cost-effectively

    To manage noise, it must first be assessed. Several commercial noise prediction tools exist, but they are often complex and expensive. A new Irish study evaluates a simpler tool and demonstrates that it produces very similar results to standard commercial software. The European Directive on Environmental Noise1 requires Member States to draw up strategic noise maps and action plans. A noise map ...

  • EEA draws the first map of Europe`s noise exposure

    The European Environment Agency (EEA) has launched the most comprehensive map of noise exposure to date, revealing the extent to which European citizens are exposed to excessive acoustic pollution. The NOISE (Noise Observation and Information Service for Europe) database provides, at the click of a mouse, a picture of the numbers of people exposed to noise generated by air, rail and road traffic ...

  • Noise levels across Europe now mapped by new EEA application

    European citizens will soon be able to access and upload data on noise levels in their area, thanks to a new application on the Eye on Earth online map service. The European Environment Agency (EEA) has developed NoiseWatch to help the many millions of people across the EU exposed to damaging levels of noise. Noise levels can drastically affect quality of life. High levels of noise can cause ...

  • Traffic noise pollution mapped with new mobile phone app

    A new mobile phone application which can help monitor traffic-noise exposure is presented in a recent study. The app, ‘2Loud?’, can measure indoor night-time noise exposure and, given large-scale community participation, could provide valuable data to aid urban planning, the researchers say. In an Australian pilot study, nearly half of participants who used the app found that they ...

  • Traffic noise exposure usefully assessed by END digital maps

    Digital noise maps developed under the EU’s Environmental Noise Directive (END) are a useful way of assessing traffic noise exposure for local residents, according to a recent Swedish study. The END maps could also be used to standardise noise exposure information in noise and health research. Environmental noise, from sources including road, rail and air traffic, not only causes annoyance ...

  • Environmental Noise Monitoring

    The XL2 Sound Level Meter provides the dedicated solution for monitoring environmental noise in industry and communities.

  • Noise exposure estimation methods compared

    It is difficult to compare estimates of noise exposure across EU Member States because the methods used to produce the data vary between countries. A new study has investigated five methods of estimating noise exposure and identified some of the reasons for variation in the data they produce. In order to comply with the European Noise Directive (END)1, EU Member States have produced ...
