Assessment of environmental noise is usually based on the measurements of the A-weighted short term average sound level, L Aeq.τ . The A-weighted long term average sound level, L Aeq,LT , can be approximated by the A-weighted average sound level, L Aeq,mτ , when m measurements of L Aeq,τ are known. The aim of this study is to determine the approximation error, when L Aeq,LT is replaced by L Aeq,mτ . The method is illustrated by an example.
