If you need help about filling in a variable open the link at the end of this paragraph in a new window. Otherwise, just delete this paragraph and start writing.

Noise exposure gives the number of people exposed to different levels of noise in the vicinity of Schiphol airport


In Lu & Morrell (2006) the level of noise is measured in Kosten unit (KU). 10 KU was used as the background level. Number of residences within the noise contour 20-10 KU is missing from their data (unavailable).

KU cannot be converted to noise exposure in dB(A) [1]

Visser et al (2005) published a noise map (although this is probably not the original place of publication).
