Noise Control Terms Made Somewhat Easier by the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse Library

This dictionary of terms related to noise and noise control is a useful tool for those who are investigating how to reduce the amount of noise pollution in their environment. The original authors did an excellent job of defining terms associated with sound and noise, and we have inserted information in green where we felt there were new or useful words or terms, and where we felt a longer definition might improve communication.

If you come across a word not defined here, or where the definition isn't clear enough, let us know using our web form and we'll give you further information and improve the dictionary.

You can navigate the dictionary using your browsers' "Find" function (under "Edit" usually) and you can click on the internal links.
