About The Author

My research activity focuses on the development of tools and methodologies for environmental noise management, i.e. modelling environmental (transportation) noise, assessing environmental noise impact, and implementing actions plans to minimise environmental noise impact. Understanding the multi-dimensional character of the problem, my research has pursued the integration of environmental noise with other environmental, social and economic variables, also implementing modelling methods able to account for the complexity involved.

Airport Noise Modelling For Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment Of Aviation

Aircraft noise is usually the main environmental concern for communities living near airports.  Among the primary effects of aircraft noise, annoyance and sleep disturbance have received considerable attention, as they cause a significant impact on quality of life and welfare.  A recent report of the Aviation Environment Federation (AEF) in 2016 stated that over one
