Short term noise monitoring

Airservices manages a short-term noise monitoring program which is an important addition to the Noise and Flight Path Monitoring System (NFPMS). Portable noise monitors can be deployed for a limited period of time, typically three months. They allow data to be obtained from locations that do not require or where a long-term monitor cannot be installed.

The results can be used to:

  • Quantify the impacts of a procedural change
  • To assess a site for suitability as a permanent site
  • Refine Airservices noise modelling activities.

A summary of data collected through the short-term noise monitoring program is below.
