Establishing the acute physiological and sleep disruption characteristics of wind farm versus road traffic noise disturbances in sleep: a randomized controlled trial protocol

Author:  Micic, Gorica; et al.

Establishing the acute physiological and sleep disruption characteristics of wind farm versus road traffic noise disturbances in sleep: a randomized controlled trial protocol Introduction Wind farms continue to gain prominence as a major source of sustainable energy generation in over 90 countries. However, onshore wind farms are also a source of public concern and debate regarding potential adverse effects of wind farm noise (WFN) emissions on nearby communities. Sufficiently loud noise from any source has the potential to disturb sleep, . . .

Whales stop singing and rock lobsters lose their balance: how seismic surveys can harm marine life

Author:  Day, Ryan; Semmens, Jayson; and McCauley, Robert

Woodside Energy this week announced it would start seismic testing for its Scarborough gas project off Australia’s west coast, before reversing the decision in the face of a legal challenge from Traditional Owners. Seismic testing is highly controversial in marine environments. The federal regulator (the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority) is currently examining a proposal for seismic testing in the Otway Basin in Bass Strait, which conservationists say has attracted more than 30,000 public submissions. Seismic testing . . .
