DETERMINATION OF NOISE LEVEL IN IKOT EKPENE METROPOLIS
()
Science Lab. Technology

ABSTRACT

The environmental noise level of Ikot Ekpene metropolis was studied using sound level meter for measurement and questionnaire for respondents. The correlation between the subjective and objective measurements shows noise at different level in each of the zones, as 0.1, 0.04 and 0.01 respectively. The major source of this noise for all location in each zone is motorcycle and its effect is lack of concentration. This  noise is mostly heard in the morning and afternoon time this is because in the morning and afternoon time, commercial activities is high and the network road activities is also high generating  high level of noise.

CHAPTER ONE

1.1     Background of the Study

Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in heavily populated or industrialized areas its sources and adverse effects on our wellbeing are varied and can range from sleep disturbances to increased stress levels, potentially leading to more major problems such as heart disease.

Noise is described as unwanted sound, and within this context, environmental noise is generally present in some form in all areas of human activity. Stansfeld (2000).

Noise at low level is not necessarily harmful, environmental noise can convey a sense of liveliness in an area, and is not then considered ‘unwanted”. As a result of environmental noise pollution which include interference with speech or other desired sound, annoyance, sleep disturbance, anxiety, hearing damage and stress related cardiovascular health problem. Environmental noise is studied, regulated and monitored by many governments and institutions. The basis of all decisions is supported by the objective and accurate measurement of noise. Noise is measured in decibels (dB) using  sound level meter. This research project seeks to measure the noise level in Ikot Ekpene metropolis.

1.2     Aims and Objectives of the Study

The aim of this research work is to determine noise level in Ikot Ekpene metropolis with the following objectives.

1.  To determine the noise level in Ikot Ekpene metropolis

2.  To locate the noise area of the metropolis

3.  To identify the major sources of noise in this area

4.  To investigate the attitude of the people to this noise

5.  The accumulated data for further research work.

1.3     Scope and Limitations

This study was limited to the use of sound level meter and questionnaire for the determination of noise in Ikot Ekpene metropolis. It was also limited to time and funds.
