Sound pollution workshop

San Sebastian acoustic pollution map

It's difficult to measure and quantify and leaves no waste behind, but noise causes pollution, as you’ll see in this workshop. You’ll learn about sound level meters and use one to measure sound levels at various points in the urban area around Tabakalera.

After around 20 minutes we’ll gather to compare results and examine basic aspects of noise control, such as the decibel scale, noise maps, noise barriers and building insulation.
