PACHECO, José; FRANCO, Juan F.  e  BEHRENTZ, Eduardo. Noise Pollution in Bogotá City: A Pilot Study. [online]. 2009, n.30, pp.72-80. ISSN 0121-4993.

The main goal of this research was to characterize the range of noise pollution in Bogota. To achieve such objective, we selected eight microenvironments and several roadways in different zones of the city. In the selected locations, we conducted sound pressure measurements and documented the traffic congestion using a digital video camera. 75% of the time the determined noise levels were above the national standards. This was the case even for sensitive zones such as those nearby parks and hospitals. The results obtained through this research demonstrate both, the importance and complexity of the vehicle traffic impact over the noise pollution in the city.

Palavras-chave : Acoustic pollution; microenvironment; noise; quality of life; sound pressure; vehicle traffic.
