Noise monitor dashboard – overview

Everyone encounters sound every day. It is only when that sound causes an adverse effect on a listener, such as annoyance, does that sound become noise. And noise is not always just about how loud the sound is, there is a complex set of factors that drive annoyance both based upon the noise itself and what that noise means to us.

To understand the noise impact on the local community the airport has a number of fixed or temporary noise monitors deployed in the local area, generally under or near flight paths. The monitors detect and send the noise levels every second 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to a central system.
