Editor’s View (Mar 2019)

Welcome to the March 2019 issue of NNI.

In this issue you will read about some lesser-known facts related to vibration transmission and isolation, details on the upcoming INTER-NOISE conference in Madrid, some open grants and awards for students and young professionals, as well as the latest links between transportation noise and public health outcomes.

We are also introducing a new feature in this issue, “From the Archives.” NNI enjoys a rich history, and has existed, in some form, since the very beginnings of I-INCE. Because of this, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit different articles from our archives and provide readers with an update to these articles. To kick us off, we catch up with one of our contributors to this issue, Dr. Eric E. Ungar, who, by a happy coincidence, was featured in the very first issue of NNI in 1993.

As ever, we have updates from all around the world in NOISE/NOTES. You can follow us online on Facebook and Twitter under our handle NNIEditor, and we are about to launch our own Instagram account. Our Instagram account will feature short video tutorials about some basic acoustic principles—stay tuned for more updates on that.

I hope you enjoy this issue of NNI.
