# How do I calculate hourly LAeq sound pressure level using 1-mint LAeq values?

I have continuous A-weighted sound pressure level (SPL) values at 1 minute time resolution (LAeq,1min). I would like to calculate LAeq SPL at half-hourly and hourly resolutions using these values. Can someone suggest on how this could be achieved?

• average over 30 minutes or 60 minutes or take the max value in 30 minutes or 60 minutes. – Solar Mike Apr 9 '20 at 9:13
• Care to post as a proposed answer with equations? – khajlk Apr 9 '20 at 9:34
• No, because if I do it in my program you will want it in another. So, now you have the idea you can implement it. – Solar Mike Apr 9 '20 at 9:40

$$Leq (hour) = \frac{1}{60}\sum_{n=1}^{60}Leq(minute_{n})$$
