How do we measure Noise?

Noise monitors

Edinburgh Airport has placed 4 noise monitors in locations underneath the flight paths from our runway. These are:

EDI01 – Livingston

EDI02 – Broxburn

EDI03 – Cramond

The noise monitors is a recording device and picks up all sounds in the area. Symphony Environmental View is noise software that we use which can distinguish the noise of an aircraft from the noise monitor. This is linked to our Noise and Track system, where we can monitor the noise of each aircraft.

See below the locations of each noise monitor and an example of the aircraft tracks from our Noise and Track system.

Noise Monitor 1 - Livingston

Noise Monitor 2 - Broxburn

Noise Monitor 3 - Cramond
