Languages of publication
In the process of environmental noise hazards assessment besides estimation of uncertainty measurement of control results there should be made errors analysis related to estimation processes to long-term noise indicators. the condition of correct quantification of uncertainty budget components in the control process is using proper analysis method. The problem rest on determining density function of probability distribution of long-term noise indicators. in order to several conditioning characteristic for the problem it can not be to solved by classic estimation analysis applied in statistical researches, without different reservations. There was formulated the estimation idea of seeking density function of long-term noise indicators distribution by bootstrap method, which does not generate limitations for form and properties of analyzed statistics. There was presented theoretical basis of the proposed method, and the example of calculation process which make possible determining searching estimators of expected value and variance of long-term noise indicators L_{DEN} and L_{N}. The illustration for indicated solutions and usefulness analysis was continuous monitoring results of a traffic noise recorded on one of the main arteries of Kraków.
