Infrasound Emission from Wind Turbines

This article distinguishes between three different types of noise from wind turbines: (1) machinery noise, (2) aerodynamic rotor noise, and (3) infrasound (this “noise is sometimes described to subjectively have a ‘thumping’ character”).  The article is a survey of “all known published measurement results of infrasound from wind turbines.”  The author concludes that “wind turbines…
