Abstract

The Green Paper estimates that, in terms of the number of world people affected by noise, 20% of the population (i.e., 120 million people) suffer from unacceptable noise levels that cause sleep disturbance, annoyance and adverse health effects. An additional 170 million citizens in Europe live in areas where noise levels cause serious annoyance during the daytime. In financial terms, environmental noise costs society an estimated 0.2% to 2% of the Gross Domestic Product. Even the lower of these figures represents an immense cost. This paper describes the factors that influence оn the noise propagation in the environment.
