Abstract

Research has shown visitors to national parks can potentially impact park resources by trampling fragile vegetation, compacting and eroding soils, polluting water and disturbing wildlife. Acoustical impacts are also prevalent in national parks. The transportation systems that bring visitors to parks, visitor activities in parks, maintenance and infrastructure to support park visitation all project noise into park environments. Natural sounds and quiet backgrounds for hearing them are increasingly scarce resources. This paper will report on a program of research to address relationships between visitor access to parks and noise.
