  • Environmental Noise

    Introduction The ability to hear sounds is a sensory function vital for human survival and communication. However, not all sounds are wanted. 'Unwanted sounds', for which the term 'noise' is normally used, often have their origin in human activities (mainly transport, industry and households). This article addresses environmental noise ­ also referred to in the scientific literature as ...

  • A simple notch filter for removing high frequency noise in atmospheric measurements

    The experimenter occasionally encounters high-frequency (> 1 Hz) contamination in sonic anemometer data that adversely affects higher-order moment calculations. One has the option of applying a low-pass filter (either a simple, equally weighted moving average filter or any one of the sharper cut-off versions available today) to eliminate not only the unwanted frequency, but all frequencies ...

  • Integrate noise measurements into your existing Process Monitoring and Control Systems.

    The ZE:908 is a small and lightweight power supply and acoustic conditioning unit for the Cirrus MV:200 microphone preamplifiers and MK:170 Outdoor microphone units. Many industrial plants have a variety of process sensors strategically placed around their site so that safety, environmental impact and efficiency can be monitored and managed, in real time, from one or more control rooms. The ...

  • Noise Monitors and Meters

    Sound level meters Description and ApplicationsThe sound level meter is a lightweight instrument for the measurement of sound pressure level (SPL) in decibels. All ANSI-approved meters meet minimum requirements that include an A-weighted network, a slow-response meter characteristic, and a fully graduated scale with measurements ranging from 80 to 130 dBA. The Type II meter is most frequently ...

  • Methods for Removing Signal Noise from Helicopter Electromagnetic Survey Data

    A geophysical analysis was conducted over the abandoned T&T subsurface mines and portions of the Muddy and Roaring Creek watersheds in northeastern Preston County, West Virginia. The data were collected using helicopter-borne measurements of frequency-domain electromagnetic (FDEM) conductivity (390, 1555, 6254, 25,800, and 102,680 Hz). Noise was a significant issue in the lowest frequency EM ...
