A system is presented for determining acoustic noise distribution and assessing its adverse effects in short time periods inside large urban areas owing to the employment of a supercomputing cluster. A unique feature of the system is the psychoacoustic noise dosimetry implemented to inform interested citizens about predicted auditory fatigue effects that may be caused by the exposure to excessive noise. The noise level computing is based on the engineered Noise Prediction Model (NPM) stemmed from the Harmonoise model. Sound level distribution in the urban area can be viewed by users over the prepared www service. An example of a map is presented in consecutive time periods to show the capability of the supercomputing cluster to update noise level maps frequently.
