Live noise data
Eastland Port has a sound monitoring device on the Portside Hotel to measure the noise levels in the area. The monitor measures noise from activity at the port and other noise sources in the area. Noise levels at the monitor are typically between 50 and 60 dB LAeq.
It’s important to note that the measured noise levels are not just from Eastland Port activity. Noise from other sources such as weather events, passing heavy vehicles, and other environmental factors will also be measured. This will influence the noise monitoring data.
Noise data is presented in a graph which shows the average noise level throughout the day in 15 minute periods (LAeq 15min). The example below explains how to read the graph. Click here to see the real-time noise data. Live noise data example
