The Quiet Coalition’s board chair, Dr. Daniel Fink, presented a poster at the recently concluded meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in San Diego, California.
The poster was based on his article in the Fall 2019 issue of Acoustics Today, “Ambient Noise Is “The New Secondhand Smoke.”
Dr. Fink also used the poster presentation to introduce his new definition of noise: Noise is unwanted and/or harmful sound.
A manuscript based on the poster is being prepared for submission to Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics, one of ASA’s scientific journals.
