Consequently, aviation-noise exposure has continued to deteriorate mostly for people living in urban areas near airport surroundings. Although many noise-abatement measures have been developed to counter this phenomenon, further actions against noise pollution are needed, as a prolonged exposure to aircraft noise is related to several adverse effects on human health (e.g. cardiovascular diseases, annoyance, sleep disturbance,...
