Investigating noise control in urban environments, Voichita Bucur's new book Urban Forest Acoustics covers the following topics: - dendrological characteristics of trees. factors affecting sound propagation in forest belts. equipment for in situ noise measurements. acoustical sensors for the measurement of tree characteristics. noise attenuation in situ due to the ground and scattering by trees, trunks, foliage, branches. protection against traffic noise from highways, railways, aircraft. relations between urban noise and trees, birds, and insects.

Urban Forest Acoustics With 109 Figures and 33 Tables. My motivation for writing this book comes from the frequently asked questions about urban environmental integrity, related namely to noise, climate, air and water quality. This book is structured in nine chapters. As usual the ﬁrst chapter Introduction relates the concept of the urban tree in contrast to the forest tree and gives a short description of the dendrological characteristics of different trees in the urban environment. The second chapter is Noise in Forest and refers to sound propagation in forest and the factors affecting this propagation.

ABSTRACT Trees and plants in general can attenuate the sound by reflecting, refracting and. absorbing energy. 2. physical aspects of noise attenuation by urban forest. Figure 1 synthesised the factors effecting the noise attenuation in a forest stand through absorption, dispersion, reflection and refraction. Noise attenuation in its totality is composed of normal attenuation and excess attenuation.

Trees can reduce noise by sound reflection and absorption and this is the first book bringing together the widely scattered literature on noise abatement by urban trees. The book will interest those concerned with environmental management, noise control, and urban forestry. It is an invaluable source of information for environmental managers, foresters, acousticians, engineers, architects, scientists, and students. 190 pages, 109 illus. Publisher: Springer-Verlag.
