Abstract
Indoor noise exposure in children's bedroom has been studied by SINTEF Digital. It is a part of the MILPAAHEL project "Environmental noise and childrens`s sleep and health - using the MoBa cohort", at The Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The findings tell us that indoor night-time noise in children's bedrooms often is dominated by indoor noise sources, but that this differs largely from case to case. Also, there seem to be little correlation between noise on the most exposed facade, and the noise on silent side. A new low-cost methodology has been developed for collection of indoor and outdoor noise exposure data. This is suitable for large scale measurements of very detailed data, with valid quality.
