Lee Road Site - Elevation Maps and Noise Impacts
These graphics show the elevation change and what hills/ridges might be in between two points on the map. If you view the first graphic (Lee Road Range to Mt. Misery) the satellite imagery at the top has arrows pointing to the starting point of the straight line between the two points (Lee Road Range) and the lines ending point (Mt. Misery Summit).
The graph at the bottom of the slide shows the ground surface elevation between those two points following that line. There is a bold red arrow between the Lee Road Range starting point and the Mt. Misery Summit ending point. As you can see in the first graphic (Lee Road Range to Mt. Misery) the straight line between the beginning and ending point never touches the ground surface, meaning there is nothing but air on a direct line between Lee Road Range and the summit of Mt. Misery. There are no mountains or ridges in between those 2 points to block the sounds of gunfire.
The graphs with the ground surface topography at the bottom of each slide always have a starting point of Lee Road Range regardless of what the destination points compass direction is from Lee Road.
By and large the graphics show that the Lee Road Range is factually a high spot and that noises emanating from that location will not be obstructed/blocks by ground features such as ridges or mountains as the sound travels to the selected sample locations virtually in all directions.
