The paper presents a pilot investigation of noise source models in two selected localizations
in the context of future dynamic noise map creation. The experiments were carried out using
the automatic noise monitoring station engineered at the Multimedia Systems Department
of the Gda´nsk University of Technology. The results of the noise measurements employing
monitoring stations and its comparison to the reference values are depicted. Short- and longterm
studies of noise level are also presented. The experiments described include a comparison
between environmental measurement results and the noise level prediction results. Data
obtained from the NMPB-96 (Nouvelle Méthode de Prévision du Bruit) and the Harmonoise
model data provide the subject of the analysis. The proposed solution of permanent noise
monitoring system is also shortly described.
Keywords: noise, noise prediction, road noise model, dynamic noise map
