Grond-Geluid or "Groundsound' is the title of an acoustic landiscape project of Dutch designer Paul de Kort that reduces noise pollution around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one of the world's busiest airports. Groundsound and the resulting public park, Buitenschot that resulted from the project offer grand ridges that mimic small sand ripples left by waves on a beach but they go a great distance in addressing the low frequency ground noise created by departing flights at the nearby airport.
