The September/October 2021 issue of Acoustics Bulletin will be with members shortly and it includes these articles (digital edition is available to download).

  • Nicole Porter, Robin Monaghan, Chris Wood and Jamie Easton of Anderson Acoustics Ltd discuss their aviation noise management and research work. Part one of this feature was published in the July/August 2021 issue. This time, they consider more challenges, such as recognising the importance of non-acoustic factors in effective aviation noise management, establishing a new baseline (or a new normal), increasing our understanding of effects of noise from future airspace design and use, and then, introducing an effective respite strategy – has our appreciation of respite changed?
  • In the July/August issue we published an article written by three members of the working group responsible for the ProPG. In this issue the major authors of the AVO Guide, Jack Harvie-Clark and Anthony Chilton, who is Chair of the AVO Committee, respond to that article.
  • Paul Doyle, Technical Advisor and Noise Lead at the Environment Agency’s Air Quality Modelling & Assessment Unit (AQMAU), explains what happens to noise impact assessments when they are submitted to the Environment Agency.
  • As Geoff Kerry is set  to hang up his lab coat for good, his many colleagues wanted to pay tribute to him for all his years at Salford with a review of his career and many achievements.
  • In the July/August 2021 issue of Acoustics Bulletin we provided a summary of some of the diversity issues facing the IOA. Now, a Working Group has been set up to progress diversity, inclusion and equality within the Institute.
  • The national acoustics archive was established in the early 2000s, in order to preserve the papers, letters, records, workings etc of noted acousticians and/or of acoustically significant projects. The archive is held in the University of Southampton library.

Just a note about our technical articles. Although they are not peer reviewed, they all go through an internal checking process via the IOA Publications Committee and their panel of volunteer experts. This is intended to highlight any discrepancies in the articles, or areas that may need clarification, which are then referred back to authors for amends.  

The deadline for the next issue (November/December 2021) issue is Monday 11 October 2021 at the very latest please. If you have a technical article that you’d like to submit for consideration, please email the editor at nickyr [at] warnersgroup [dot] co [dot] uk at any time.
