Noise and Sound Pollution: Issues and Principles

Public awareness of the significant consequences of noise and sound pollution is on the rise in the late 1990s. In the vernacular, noise is normally considered to be loud obnoxious sound. As such noise is a subcategory of sound pollution which includes any sound - soft or loud, simple or complex - that is undesirable or unhealthy.
