This metric is the equivalent sound level during the event, normalised to a period of 1 second. To evaluate an environmental noise situation, usually values of these noise metrics are assessed outdoors. Some noise-induced effects, such as awakening and hearing impairment, have been related to indoor noise metrics. 3.
