Before the opening of the new Munich International Airport in May 1992 and the close down of the old airport, children at both sites were recruited into aircraft noise groups (aircraft noise at present or to come) and matched control groups with little aircraft noise. A total of 327 children took part in one data collection wave before and two waves after the switch over of airports. A number of physiological and psychological tests were performed at each wave. Among the perceptual and… Expand

Effects of Nocturnal Aircraft Noise and Non-Acoustical Factors on Short-Term Annoyance in Primary School Children
TLDR
It is concluded that short-term annoyance from nocturnal aircraft noise in children is mainly determined by non-acoustical factors, unlike in adults, which did not play a significant role. Expand
Study of children's exposure to aircraft noise at school and application of a new method to pilot cases in proximity to the A.Vespucci airport in Florence (Italy).
Noise due to take o s and landings at airports a ects 0.6 million people at European level, causing average Lden values above 55 dB outside urban areas. This scenario represents a much smallerExpand

Abstract In a 2×2 factorial design two noise levels (38 dBA and 53 dBA) were crossed with two temperature levels (19°C and 27°C). A total of 64 subjects completed a 2-h, 20-min session, working withExpand
Chronic Noise Exposure and Physiological Response: A Prospective Study of Children Living Under Environmental Stress
TLDR
Data collected before and after the inauguration of a major new international airport in noise-impacted and comparison communities show that noise significantly elevates stress among children at ambient levels far below those necessary to produce hearing damage. Expand
