Reference:ERCD Report 0506 Title:Precision of Aircraft Noise Measurements at the London Airports Description:This report describes the key sources of uncertainty associated with the long-term measurement of noise from aircraft operations at the London airports and estimates their individual and combined magnitudes. The results of a controlled measurement study that was carried out to provide further information on the precision of aircraft noise measurements are also presented. The results indicate that measurement uncertainty is reduced when measuring aircraft noise levels in SEL rather than Lmax and provide additional confidence in the accuracy of the UK aircraft noise contour model ANCON, which has been validated extensively using measured SEL data.
