In extension of previous methods to identify military impulse noise in the civilian environmental noise monitoring setting by means of a set of computed scalar metrics input to artificial neural network structures, Bayesian methods are investigated to classify the same dataset. Four interesting cases are identified and analyzed: A) Maximum accuracy achieve on training data, B) Maximum overall accuracy on blind testing data, C) Maximum accuracy on testing data with zero false positive detections, D) Maximum accuracy on testing data with zero false negative rejections. The first case is used to illustrative example and the later three represent actual monitoring modes. All of the cases are compared and contrasted to illuminate respective strengths and weaknesses. Overall accuracies of up to 99.8% are observed with no false negative rejections and accuracies of up to 98.4% are also achieved with no false positive detections.
