The Environment Department of Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport has Noise Measurement Terminals (NMT) strategically located around the perimeter of the airport 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 7 fixed terminals and 2 mobile ones, which are used for the daily environmental monitoring of aircraft noise pollution.
NMT-3: Castañetas. "Las Castañetas" social centre.
NMT-4: Campanillas. "Francisco de Quevedo" School.
NMT-5: Santa Rosalía. Operational services centre. District 9.
NMT-6: San Julián. Social and cultural centre.
NMT-7: Cártama station. Mayor's office (mobile).
NMT-9: Los Álamos. Clínica Sta. Elena (mobile).
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 Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport. In addition, they contain an analysis of the various factors that also affect the increase or decrease in noise produced by aeronautical activity.
