    Its basically noise in a place that you don't want it. It can be equipment or vehicle noise, loud music, aircraft, or even a dog barking.

    In the right place at the right time, it might not be considered pollution, but it gets categorized as pollution when the location or time makes it a nuisance. Its why a lot of construction projects can't operate before a certain time of day and have to shut down by a certain time in the evening.

    In many cities there is a noise abatement department that will determine whether noises exceed a certain threshold. If so, the offender might have to change the way they're operating or change the times that they operate to comply.

    Well I could be wrong, but I believe noise pollution is when dangerous chemicals are emitted when your girlfriend screams out you. Otherwise I'm pretty sure it's a "bad" noise where silence is preferable comparatively. For example, you're reading twilight on the couch when your friend turns on a leaf blower indoors. This is okay since you're reading Twilight. Any other case and it would probably be considered noise pollution.

  • Noise pollution is noise that is un natural and annoying. For example, construction noise (dump trucks, backing up beeps all day - etc)

    Some people claim Aircraft make noise pollution but I love the airlines and i LOVE airplanes, especially the noise they make so I can't support that.

    Noise pollution (or environmental noise) is displeasing human-, animal- or machine-created sound that disrupts the activity or balance of human or animal life. A common form of noise pollution is from transportation, principally motor vehicles.[1] The word noise comes from the Latin word nausea meaning seasickness.
