Exposure-response relationship of wind turbine noise with self-reported symptoms of sleep and health problems: A nationwide socioacoustic survey in Japan
Abstract: The association of wind turbine noise (WTN) with sleep and physical/mental health has not been fully investigated. To investigate the relationship of WTN with the prevalence of self-reported symptoms of sleep and health problems, a socioacoustic survey of 1079 adult residents was conducted throughout Japan (2010-2012): 747 in 34 areas surrounding wind turbine plants and 332 in 16 control areas. During face-to-face interviews, the respondents were not informed of the purpose of the survey. Questions on symptoms such as . . . Complete article »

Dose-response relationships for wind turbine noise in Japan
ABSTRACT: In order to obtain a base for wind turbine noise policy, a socio-acoustic survey was carried out throughout Japan from Hokkaido to Okinawa over three years (2010-2012). In total 747 responses were obtained with face-to-face interview method. The wind turbine noise was measured at several points in each site for successive five days. The LAeq,n, which was precisely measured outdoor in a day, was taken as noise exposure. A representative exposure-annoyance relationship was drawn based on all data. The . . . Complete article »

Social survey on community response to wind turbine noise in Japan
ABSTRACT: A committee of Research on the Evaluation of Human Impact of Low Frequency Noise from Wind Turbine Generators conducted a series of physical measurements, laboratory psychological experiments and social surveys of wind turbine noise under the auspice of the Ministry of the Environment of Japan. In this paper, a design of questionnaire used in the survey and a part of the results are introduced. The questionnaire is based on the proposal of the Acoustical Society of Japan, which was . . .
