Noise Action Week – Recent Articles on Noise and Health
By H Dominic W Stiles, on 22 May 2014
This week two awareness weeks coincide, both within our area of interest and coverage, namely Deaf Awareness Week and Noise Action Week.
Deaf Awareness Week is themed this year on “Equality In Communication For All” .
Noise Action Week “is an annual opportunity to focus the attention of communities on the problems excessive noise can cause for us all – at home, at work, at study and at leisure.”
Below is a list of recent articles on various aspects of noise and health, from noise mapping, to noise pollution and environmental noise. Click on the links for abstracts or access to full articles where available:
