How City Noise Affects Residents’ Health (The Atlantic , Mar. 1, 2016)
Also discussed here: Noise and the City Blog
And here: Greater Boston Neighborhood Noise Survey (Noise and the City)
Today we review progress on a project by a PhD candidate at Harvard School of Public Health to measure and monitor the noise in neighbourhoods of a large American city (Boston) as well as conduct a survey of residents to assess their reaction to noise. The noises include traditional road noise from traffic, as well as the hidden ones such as vibrations and low frequency noises from underground subways or idling trucks. While we await her thesis, those interested in the project can follow progress at her blog at http://noiseandthecity.org/monitoring-and-surveying-at-a-glance/ .
