Mount Rainier National Park: Acoustical Monitoring Report 2009

During the summer (July – September 2009), baseline acoustical data were collected for approximately one month at two sites deployed by National Park Service (NPS) personnel in Mount Rainier National Park (MORA). The purpose of the monitoring effort was to supplement prior ambient data collected by NPS in 2006-2007. The data will help park managers and planners estimate the effects of future noise impacts and will help to inform future park planning objectives such as creating soundscape management plans, as well as the development of an Air Tour Management Plan (ATMP), which provides for the regulation of commercial air tours over National Parks. This report provides a summary of results of these measurements, representing MORA’s summer season.
