Short-term nighttime wind turbine noise and cardiovascular events: A nationwide case-crossover study from Denmark

Author:  Poulsen, Aslak Harbo; et al. | Denmark, Health, Noise

A B S T R A C T Aims: The number of people exposed to wind turbine noise (WTN) is increasing. WTN is reported as more annoying than traffic noise at similar levels. Long-term exposure to traffic noise has consistently been associated with cardiovascular disease, whereas effects of short-term exposure are much less investigated due to little day-to-day variation of, e.g., road traffic noise. WTN varies considerably due to changing weather conditions allowing investigation of short-term effects of WTN on . . .

Understanding stress effects of wind turbine noise – the integrated approach

Author:  Pohl, Johannes; Gabriel, Joachim; and Hübner, Gundula | Germany, Health, Noise

To better understand causes and effects of wind turbine (WT) noise, this study combined the methodology of stress psychology with noise measurement to an integrated approach. In this longitudinal study, residents of a wind farm in Lower Saxony were interviewed on two occasions (2012, 2014) and given the opportunity to use audio equipment to record annoying noise. On average, both the wind farm and road traffic were somewhat annoying. More residents complained about physical and psychological symptoms due to traffic . . .
