dc.description.abstractThis model builds on a framework borrowed from the air pollution field – from so-called air pollution accountability research - that has been utilized to evaluate whether actions taken to improve air quality have resulted in reduced health effects. The air pollution framework puts most emphasis on ambient concentrations of air pollutants and this has less relevance for environmental noise. Peoples’ noise exposure is strongly influenced by the propagation paths from sources to receivers, and hence highly dependent not only on emission levels but on the disposition of receivers relative to sources. Propagation paths need to be included as a component of the system in the causal pathway between environmental noise sources and human health effects. Another difference is that air pollution accountability research has tended to focus on regulatory interventions to reduce emissions, examining whether this intervention consequently reduces ambient concentrations over time. While regulatory intervention is also used in managing environmental noise, for example by control of vehicle source levels, there is a much broader set of interventions that is utilized in environmental noise management - five broad categories of intervention can be identified. The model will provide a framework for organizing, in a search for evidence in the noise literature, a synthesis of the impacts of environmental noise interventions on human health outcomes.
