Abstract

This paper attempts to summarize those aspects of noise related to health. In a field in which technology is advancing rapidly and where research into noise-induced bioeffects is unable to keep pace with these advances, no attempt has been made to provide details. Instead, an outline of current knowledge in each of the areas concerned and the direction of further research required will be presented. It is planned to publish a document on this background information and to follow it with specific criteria on each of the various health effects of noise.
