The paper examines kart noise propagation in the living environment and sought measures for suppressing it. To conduct experimental studies, precision sound level analyzer Bruel & Kjaer 2260th has been used. In cooperation with the Lithuanian Hydrometeorological Service, data on relative humidity, wind speed and direction, soil surface temperature and air temperature have been applied. According to the Lithuanian Hygiene Standard HN 33:2011 Noise Thresholds in Residential and Public Buildings and Their Environment, the areas with an elevated noise level are identified thus selecting noise reduction measures aimed at reducing noise levels up to the permitted ones. The analysis of the obtained results has focused on the regularities between noise propagation and meteorological events and their impact on the spread of noise. The environmental factors more or less influencing the climate and noise spread in the living area have been determined. With reference to the received information, the ways to reduce noise have been suggested.
