You What? Noise Management and Bioacoustics

Dr Peter Glaves, Northumbria University

We live in an increasingly noisy world. If you’ve ever had a sleepless night due to your noisy neighbours or busy traffic, you will understand how noise can impact on people. But what is ‘noise’? How can it be understood? And how can noise be managed?

Peter’s session will address some cover some of the big questions in noise science and noise management:

  • How can understanding the characteristics of noise help us manage noise problems?
  • How can we predict noise impacts of new schemes such as roads?
  • How can bioacoustics be used to survey for difficult to find species such as bats and whales?

Students do not have to be accompanied by a member of staff, but staff are welcome to come along.
