LAERM--DEFINITIONEN UND MESSUNGEN, WIRKUNGEN UND MINDERUNG-SMASSNAHMEN. EINE UEBERSICHT

Psycho- and physiological effects of noise point to the necessity of establishing hygienically based, critical limits of noise. Paper confronts these values with laws and regulations in effect, in order to expose the still existing discrepancy in their evaluation. That discrepancy is even more evident in a, contained in paper, representation of actually occurring in large cities noise intensities such as in: vehicular or aircraft transportation, residential noise, etc. In parallel paper examines means for abatement of noise. In conclusion paper outlines criteria that should be considered in discussion of noise, surveys and registers. Paper aims at reaching urbanistic planners, transportation experts, and communal authorities, for whose benefit a catalog of various preventive measures is included.
