Noise Pollution

Medium

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Environmental science

During a summer internship, you are asked to conduct a study on noise pollution in your city. You identify two main sources of noise pollution - traffic from a major highway that runs through the city, and a large factory on the outskirts of the city that operates 24/7. Your task is to determine which of these two sources contributes more significantly to the overall noise pollution in the city. What factors would you need to consider in order to make an accurate assessment, and how would you go about collecting the necessary data?
a.
To determine which source contributes more significantly to the overall noise pollution in the city, factors such as the intensity of the noise, proximity to populated areas, and duration of the noise need to be considered. Data can be collected through field measurements, surveys, and mapping out the city using satellite images or city planning documents.
b.
Factors such as the intensity of the noise, proximity to populated areas, and duration of the noise need to be considered. Data can be collected only through field measurements.
c.
Only the duration of the noise needs to be considered. Data can be collected through surveys and mapping out the city using satellite images or city planning documents.
d.
Factors such as the intensity of the noise and proximity to populated areas need to be considered. Data can be collected through field measurements and surveys.
e.
Only the intensity of the noise needs to be considered. Data can be collected through field measurements.

In a densely populated urban area, a large manufacturing industry is planning to establish a new factory. The projected noise levels from the factory operations are within the permissible range as per government regulations but are significantly higher than the current noise levels in the area. As a concerned environmental scientist, how would you evaluate the potential noise pollution impact on the local community and the environment? What factors would you consider, and how would you formulate a judgement about the value of this industrial development in the context of noise pollution?

Imagine a small island nation that has a high birth rate and a low death rate due to modern healthcare advancements. However, the island is also experiencing a high rate of out-migration as many young people leave for job opportunities abroad. Considering this situation, how might these three factors - fertility, mortality, and migration - influence the island's overall population dynamics over time?
