Environmental Noise and Management

Selma Kurra, Istanbul Technical University and dBKES Engineering Ltd, Turkey


A comprehensive overview of environmental noise pollution from the standpoint of environmental impact and control



Environmental noise is studied, regulated and monitored by many governments and institutions, as well as forming the basis for a number of different occupations due to the adverse effects of noise exposure.

Environmental Noise and Management provides a comprehensive overview of environmental noise pollution. The book begins by covering the fundamentals of noise and acoustics, major noise sources and prediction and evaluation techniques. Developments in noise measuring techniques, and mapping and improvement of legislation to control noise pollution are then discussed, and international regulations are presented. Technological advances and recent developments regarding strategy and action plans are also covered in depth.


Key features:
* Summarizes the relevant international standards covering noise pollution and environmental engineering practice.
* Presents technological advances and recent developments regarding strategy and action plans.
* Covers developments in noise measuring techniques, prediction models, mapping and improvement of legislation to control noise pollution.


Environmental Noise and Management is a comprehensive resource for researchers and graduate students who are involved in noise pollution from the standpoint of environmental impact and control.
