Sound pollution is becoming an increasingly pressing issue in today’s world. To effectively address it, it must be measured. To this end, Serval was developed, an edge-ai powered sound recognition solution. Its lack of accuracy, however, makes it difficult to deploy. This thesis examines the potential for improving this solution while staying...

Flying has become increasingly accessible in the last few decades, leading to enormous growth in aircraft traffic worldwide. Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is the fourth-busiest airport in Europe based on passenger traffic, and noise pollution from the airport affects over 63,000 individuals daily. This study aims to determine if the presence of...

Can grassroots-driven citizen sensing initiatives triggered by distrust contribute to risk problem-solving? The article inspects such a potential in the field of risks to public health represented by noise pollution. After a conceptual reflection, the Amsterdam Schiphol and the London Heathrow airports’ noise monitoring cases are compared. We...

Recent researches indicate that in the Netherlands a trend is to be noticed in people moving to cities, which are denser areas, due to the fact that these provide easy access to facilities and mobility. Areas along highways provide the necessary space for expansion, but as these areas are highly polluted by noise and air pollution, a careful...

This thesis was a combined project of the CWI (the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands) and the NLR (National Aerospace Laboratory of the Netherlands). In this thesis we examine noise pollution around airports. Given an airport we will consider the problem maximizing the number of flights, while...

In applied research, noise annoyance is often used as indicator of subjective reaction to aircraft noise in residential areas. The present study aims to show that the meaning which respondents attach to the concept of aircraft noise annoyance is partly a function of survey context. To this purpose a survey is conducted among residents living...

In this paper a measurement model for general noise reaction (GNR) in response to aircraft noise is developed to assess the performance of aircraft noise annoyance and a direct measure of general reaction as indicators of this concept. For this purpose GNR is conceptualized as a superordinate latent construct underlying particular manifestations...

Aircraft noise annoyance is studied extensively, but often without an explicit theoretical framework. In this article, a social approach for noise annoyance is proposed. The idea that aircraft noise is meaningful to people within a socially produced discourse is assumed and tested. More particularly, it is expected that the noise policy...

Previous research has stressed the relevance of nonacoustical factors in the perception of aircraft noise. However, it is largely empirically driven and lacks a sound theoretical basis. In this paper, a theoretical model which explains noise annoyance based on the psychological stress theory is empirically tested. The model is estimated by...

People move to another house for different reasons. It is sometimes presumed that a process of self-selection might take place on the basis of noise sensitivity, i.e., sensitive people would either leave high noise areas or not move into these areas in the first place. Thus, a “survivor population” would remain in the high noise areas. This...
