Noise level reading, LAeq,T minus background, LA90,T dB Correction: subtract from noise level reading dB 6 to 9 4 to 5 1 2 <3 Difficult to correct Addition of noise levels Noise levels in dB cannot meaningfully be added together, as, being logarithms the result will be a multiplication. Antilogs of the readings must be used, as shown below. Note that the noise reading should be divided by 10 before finding the antilog as antilogs of 100 or more will result in an ERROR indication on normal calculators.
