Noise data tabs

Here you can choose what noise data to show on the map.

The Operational Noise Levels tab shows you current noise levels for two runways and operational noise levels with three runways at full capacity. The middle tab show Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) data which is the current Australian standard for measuring noise. The last tab shows N-contours which show the forecast ultimate capacity number of aircraft noise events per day – exceeding 70, 65 or 60 decibels.

You can select the data type you'd like to view by clicking the appropriate tab.
