Back in November 2011, some of the Cirrus staff carried out some noise measurements at firework displays on and around Bonfire night.
This generated a lot of interest and discussion and so we’re going to repeat the exercise in 2013 and we’d like to gather as much data as possible.
If you’re attending a fireworks display this November and you have access to a sound level meter, we’d like to ask you to make some measurements.
The information that we’re interested in gathering is:
- Time & Date of the measurement
- Approximate location
- Measurement duration
We would prefer measurements made within crowds or groups of people where possible so the measurements are representative of the noise that you are being exposed to.
If you’re at any other events during November 2013 where fireworks are being used, such as Thanksgiving on the 28th November or Diwali on the 3rd November and you can take some measurements, please let us have the information from these as well.
The more information we can gather, the better!
Please send any measurement data to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org preferably as a simple list of information or in an excel spread sheet. If you’ve got large data files, let me know and I’ll send you a link to upload your measurement data.
Towards the end of November we’ll collate the measurement data and write up a report. Any questions or comments, please let me know.
