Affective Response to Amplitude Modulated Wind Turbine Sound

The amplitude modulated sound character of wind turbines is frequently mentioned in the context of annoyance and health effects with significant economic impact. While there are still questions about the source mechanisms and characterisation of amplitude modulation one of the most under-researched areas is the response of listeners to this type of sound. Preliminary listening tests have been conducted by the University of Salford but more work needs to be done to understand most suitable metrics and the effects of random occurrence and long term exposure.
