Bilbao Airport's Environment Department has Noise Measurement Terminals (NMT) strategically located around the airport perimeter to detect, measure and associate the noise produced by aircraft as they fly over the microphones installed in strategic zones in the surrounding area.
The locations of the measurement terminals were selected in order to correctly measure environmental noise levels in the airport's area of influence. There are 4 fixed terminals and 1 mobile terminal for the daily monitoring of noise pollution produced by aircraft.
Location of the NMTs:
NMT-1: Leioa (Town Hall).
NMT-2: Erandio (Cemetery).
NMT-3: Loiu (Town Hall).
NMT-4: Derio (Cultural Centre).
NMT-5: NMT-5: Zamudio (State School).
The noise reports provide information on the monthly assessment of noise measurements taken at the Noise Monitoring Stations (NMS) installed by AENA in the area surrounding Bilbao Airport. In addition, they contain an analysis of the various factors that also affect the increase or decrease in noise produced by aeronautical activity.
