Abstract [en]

The possibility of road traffic noise masking noise from wind turbines was explored among residents living close to wind turbines in the Netherlands (n = 725) with different levels of  road traffic noise present. No general masking effect was found, except when levels of wind turbine sound were moderate (35 – 40 dB(A) Lden) and road traffic sound level exceeded that level with at least 20 dB(A). This low masking capacity may be due to the different time patterns of these noise sources, both on a small time scale (car passages/regular blade passing) and a larger time scale (diurnal and weekly patterns). Also, wind turbine sound is relatively easy audible and may be heard upwind more often than road traffic.
