As a result of the growing population density in urban areas, environmental noise is nowadays recognized as a public health problem. Directive 2002/49 / EC require the creation of noise maps in the main European cities. Sound is an elastic wave that propagates in a gaseous, liquid, or solid medium. Noise is a complex of sounds of different frequencies and intensities randomly superimposed. The production, propagation and detection of sound waves are related to the vibration of the elastic environment, which the human ear can detect. Now in the "century of speed" when development is the priority, urban areas are the most affected. In this study, we have determined and map the noise pollution levels in a crowded intersection in Bucharest. The values obtained were compared with the limits presented in the current legislation - SR 10009:2017 for the noise level. Obtained data were processed, and noise pollution levels were mapped using a geostatistical analysis software - QGIS software.
