9780124115958: Environmental Noise Pollution: Noise Mapping, Public Health, and Policy

Environmental Noise Pollution: Noise Mapping, Public Health and Policy addresses the key debates surrounding environmental noise pollution with a particular focus on the European Union. Environmental noise pollution is an emerging public policy and environmental concern and is considered to be one of the most important environmental stressors affecting public health throughout the world.

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 the first coherent work on this major environmental stressor, a new benchmark reference across disciplinary, policy and national boundaries.

  • Highlights recent developments in the policy arena with particular focus on developments in the EU within the context of the European Noise Directive
  • Explores the lessons emerging from nations within the EU and other jurisdictions attempting to legislate and mitigate against the harmful effects of noise pollution
  • Covers the core theoretical concepts and principles surrounding the mechanics of noise pollution as well as the evidence-base linking noise with public health concerns

Dr. Eoin Anthony King is an Assistant Professor of Acoustics at the University of Hartford. He holds a BA in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD in Acoustics, both from Trinity College Dublin, and in 2013 he became a chartered engineer with Engineers Ireland. His doctoral dissertation developed a practical framework for undertaking strategic noise mapping in Europe. In 2008 he was awarded a post-doctoral research fellowship and during this time he co-founded an Irish acoustics consultancy firm, Infrasonic Ltd. His research interests include environmental acoustics, environmental policy and strategic noise mapping techniques and he has published extensively in the field of acoustics and environmental assessment. He has extensive knowledge in the field of noise modeling and prediction. In 2010 he was nominated by the Irish Department of the Environment to represent Ireland on the CNOSSOS-EU Technical Committee of experts. In 2007, and again in 2012, he developed the largest and most complex strategic noise maps prepared in Ireland to date on behalf of the Irish National Roads Authority, in accordance with EU Directive 2002/49/EC.
