Environmental Noise Pollution: Noise Mapping, Public Health and Policy addresses the key debates surrounding environmental noise pollution with a particular focus on the European Union. Environmental noise pollution is an emerging public policy and environmental concern and is considered to be one of the most important environmental stressors affecting public health throughout the world. This book examines environmental noise pollution, its health implications, the role of strategic noise mapping for problem assessment, major sources of environmental noise pollution, noise mitigation approaches, and related procedural and policy implications. Drawing on the authors' considerable research expertise in the area, the book is the first coherent work on this major environmental stressor, a new benchmark reference across disciplinary, policy and national boundaries. Highlights recent developments in the policy arena with particular focus on developments in the EU within the context of the European Noise Directive Explores the lessons emerging from nations within the EU and other jurisdictions attempting to legislate and mitigate against the harmful effects of noise pollution Covers the core theoretical concepts and principles surrounding the mechanics of noise pollution as well as the evidence-base linking noise with public health concerns

Environmental Noise and Management Selma Kurra, Istanbul Technical University and dBKES Engineering Ltd, Turkey A comprehensive overview of environmental noise pollution from the standpoint of environmental impact and control Environmental noise is studied, regulated and monitored by many governments and institutions, as well as forming the basis for a number of different occupations due to the adverse effects of noise exposure. Environmental Noise and Management provides a comprehensive overview of environmental noise pollution. The book begins by covering the fundamentals of noise and acoustics, major noise sources and prediction and evaluation techniques. Developments in noise measuring techniques, and mapping and improvement of legislation to control noise pollution are then discussed, and international regulations are presented. Technological advances and recent developments regarding strategy and action plans are also covered in depth. Key features: Summarizes the relevant international standards covering noise pollution and environmental engineering practice. Presents technological advances and recent developments regarding strategy and action plans. Covers developments in noise measuring techniques, prediction models, mapping and improvement of legislation to control noise pollution. Environmental Noise and Management is a comprehensive resource for researchers and graduate students who are involved in noise pollution from the standpoint of environmental impact and control.

The task of structuring information on built environment has presented challenges to the research community, software developers and the industry for the last 20 years. Recent work has taken advantage of Web and industry standards such as XML, OWL, IFC and STEP. Another important technology for the fragmented AEC industry is digital communication. Wired or wireless, it brings together architects, engineers and construction site workers, enabling them to exchange information, communicate and work together. Virtual enterprise organization structures, involving mobile teams over distance, are highly compatible with the needs of the construction industry.

This White Paper sets out a strategic policy framework for the development of airport capacity in the UK over the next 30 years. Chapters focus on the following: the strategic framework; the environmental impacts; the air transport sector. It also looks at individual regions and the impact for them, including: Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, also the North of England, the Midlands, the South West and finally the South East. The framework itself can be used by public bodies, air operators and airlines for future planning applications. It also sets out the Government and devolved administrations' conclusions on the case for future airport expansion, taking into account the large consultation exercise of over half million respondents. This paper provides reasons why airport capacity should be expanded, but recommends a balanced approach to the issue. Among the reasons are: the economic importance of air travel for the country’s economy and the increased desire amongst the population for foreign travel, which should be balanced against minimizing, where possible the environmental effects to an area where airports are situated. These are some of the main cases for future development following a full environmental assessment: for Scotland: an additional runway at Edinburgh Airport; substantial terminal development at Glasgow Airport. For Wales: further terminal development needed at Cardiff airport. For Northern Ireland: development of increased capacity at Belfast. For the North of England: additional terminal capacity provided at Manchester Airport and development of increased capacity at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. For the Midlands: additional runway for Birmingham. For South West England: expansion of Bristol Airport. For South East England: a new runway at Stansted; further development of Heathrow supported, including a further runway and additional terminal capacity. Some options though are not to be followed through, including: two new runways at Gatwick, a development of a second runway at Luton, and a new airport at Cliffe, a new airport of central Scotland, and a new airport at Rugby.
