KONZEPTION UND ERSTE ERGEBNISSE EINER INTERDISZIPLINAEREN UNTERSUCHUNG ZUM PROBLEM GROSSSTADTLAERM (PROJEKT "BETROFFENHEIT EINER STADT DURCH LAERM")

THE INVESTIGATION WHICH IS STILL IN PROGRESS HAS THE TASK OF DETERMINING SOUNDS WHICH ARE CLASSIFIED AS NOISE AND TO MAKE AN ACOUSTIC EVALUATION OF THE VARIOUS NOISE EXPOSURES TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTS OF NOISE EXPOSURE FOR A RELEVANT RANDOM SAMPLE OF THE POPULATION AND TO MAKE A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE VARIOUS TYPES OF NOISE AND TO DISCUSS NOISE ABATEMENT CRITERIA AND MEASURES. THE MOST IMPORTANT CONTENT OF THE INVESTIGATION COVERS: ACOUSTIC SOUND DATA; EXTENT OF ROAD, MACHINE AND AIR TRAFFIC; IMPAIRMENT OF COMMUNICATION, RECREATION, RESIDENTIAL ASPECTS AND GENERAL WELLBEING; COGNITIONS AND EMOTIONS OF THE EFFECT OF NOISE; TECHNICAL AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AGAINST NOISE; PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS AND SOCIO-PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTITUDES; LIVING CONDITIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS. THE MAIN SOCIO-PSYCHOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION CONSISTS OF PERSONAL INTERVIEWS ON THE BASIS OF A STANDARD QUESTIONNAIRE. NOISE MEASUREMENTS WERE TAKEN WITH A SPECIALLY DEVELOPED PORTABLE INSTRUMENT. IN EACH FIELD OF INVESTIGATION THE MEASUREMENTS WERE CARRIED OUT OVER 7 X 24 HOURS. AS THE DATA IS STILL BEING EVALUATED AT THE MOMENT, ONLY A FEW GENERAL RESULTS CAN BE DISCUSSED. IN ADDITION THERE ARE NOTES ON ADDITIONAL STUDIES AND FURTHER PROGRAMMES.
