Pagination or Media Count:
There is an attempt to convey the complexity of and the difficulties in forming a perspective on noise research. This is followed, in turn, by a discussion of the some of the early research sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency EPA that has had such a large role in developing many of the methods and procedures for noise assessment and evaluation. Many of the methods and recommendations are still used both nationally and internationally. This is followed by a discussion of noise induced physiological changes, noise as a stress, and on some specialized topics on the effects of impulsive acoustic stimuli, on effects on sleep, and on hearing and health effects of people living under military training routes.
