NOTE: Please see more recent reports for more in-depth coverage of many key issues; the 2012 report includes solid info on sound propagation distances, recent ordinances, and comprehensive summaries of new research on low frequency noise, and on health effects. The 2011 report remains useful, especially the section on cautionary acousticians and the Appendix summarizing AEI's NEWEEP presentation on community responses. PLEASE don't rely solely on this report; if you're going to read just one, make it the most recent one.
This is AEI's second overview of the issue, published June 2011. Fifty pages, primary focus is looking at how our familiar community noise standards are working with wind farm noise, with brief coverage of low-frequency noise, health, and property values.
