Modelled trends in environmental noise levels as a function of long-term meteorology in Alberta

Jerome Parkinson, Jason McCrank

Abstract


A set of hourly Leq dBA noise levels was generated for a listener located 1 km from the noise source in four cardinal wind directions for the six air sheds. The results was 24 sets of data that each encompassed 43,824 hourly Leg noise levels. The data was assessed using various statistical and graphical tools to identify trends and draw conclusions.
