Special Issue Information
Various modes of transportation, including highway, railway, waterway, and air, bring about noise pollution which cannot be ignored. This pollution causes both psychological and physiological effects to human health and also worsens the residential environment. Methods to reasonably evaluate and control traffic noise and reduce its influence on residents are directly related to human quality of life. Recently, there has been a number of studies on the impact of traffic noise on human settlements in terms of policies, theories, and methods. However, due to the complex traffic network, the application of new technology in planning and building construction, and the emphasis on human factors, understanding and mitigation of the impact of traffic noise on residential environment are facing new opportunities and challenges.
We are pleased to invite you to submit a paper to the Special Issue “Influence of Traffic Noise on Residential Environment” of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH). This Special Issue seeks research papers on traffic noise influence of indoor/outdoor residential environments, which include various transportation modes and auditory/non-auditory impacts on human health and the environment.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: measurement and prediction of traffic noise, assessment of indoor and outdoor acoustics environment, urban traffic environment planning, noise management and control technology, noise mapping and practical research, traffic noise exposure, health of residential public health, etc. It is expected that this Special Issue will provide a deeper understanding of the effect of noise pollution on human health through high-quality research.
