I activated the larynges of euthanized specimens with airflow, analyzed their acoustic output, and compared them to field recordings to determine (1) if variation in pulmonary pressure could produce a wider range of frequencies than observed in natural advertisement calls, (2) if variation in the produced sound frequency is correlated with sound intensity, and (3) if natural calls match the maxima of frequency and intensity obtained in the lab.
The best answer is that the unique acoustic output from the turbines excites a primitive area of the human (reptilian) brain that stimulates a response from the autonomic nervous system.
The Planning Board's authority is limited to upholding regulations for the turbine site design, acoustic output and shadow flicker.
Reference points would seem likely be Sam Beam's Iron & Wine or early acoustic output from Neil Young, Springsteen, Dylan or Elliott Smith.
(The noise reduction procedure closely parallels that used by Masters (1980) in his study of the disturbance sounds of various insects.) Noise levels in a mantid recording (a portion of the acoustic output encompassing the maximum of the amplitude envelope of a sound syllable was chosen for analysis) were reduced by subtracting the spectrum of a nearly coincident equal-time sample of background noise.
The acoustic output of the device is not limited to motion of air particles in front of a cone or the maximum displacement of the cone.
