The Band Level is the intensity level over a band other than 1 Hz.

Example

• Using the plot of ISL as a function of frequency shown, calculate – the band level of every band– the total band level – the total band level in a band from 150 Hz to 300 Hz

What is the total BL?

Common Bandwidths• Constant Bandwidth

f = constant• Proportional Bandwidth

– Octave Bandwidth• f2 = 21 f1

– Half Octave Bandwidth• f2 = 21/2 f1

Preferred Octave Bands

Why do we care?

Source Level (SL) and Noise Level (NL) are both examples of Band Levels (BL) where the frequency band(s) are defined by the frequencies of our Sonar System
