Methodology for analyzing noise impacts on different terrestrial species

Focus Area

Wildlife & Ecosystems






1-2 years

Research Idea Scope

Develop a consistent methodology for analyzing noise impacts on different terrestrial species. Develop standard metrics and procedures for the DOTs to conduct noise analyses of our highway projects on wildlife, terrestrial and aquatic, based on science and good practice.

Urgency and Payoff

Currently, DOTs have little to no guidance on how to conduct noise analyses and estimate noise impacts on wildlife from federal agencies. New guidance would save the DOTs substantial time and money addressing this issue.
