Item description for Urban Forest Acoustics by Voichita Bucur, Natalia Janson, Dmitry Postnov, Olga Sosnovtseva, Eghosa Osaghae, Callum Roberts, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...
Trees can reduce noise by sound reflection and absorption. Investigating noise control in urban environments, Voichita Bucur's new book Urban Forest Acoustics covers the following topics:- dendrological characteristics of trees- factors affecting sound propagation in forest belts- equipment for in situ noise measurements- acoustical sensors for the measurement of tree characteristics- noise attenuation in situ due to the ground and scattering by trees, trunks, foliage, branches- protection against traffic noise from highways, railways, aircraft- relations between urban noise and trees, birds, and insects- fire control- economic aspects related to the value of urban trees.The book is of particular interest to those concerned with environmental management, noise control, and urban forestry. It is an invaluable source of information for environmental managers, foresters, acousticians, engineers, architects, scientists, and students.
