Abstract:

This report discusses the effects of gravity and of the atmospheres nonuniform density on sound propagation. It is part of RANDs continuing study of the atmospheric waves generated by nuclear explosions. This report should be of interest to agencies and contractors concerned with the detection of nuclear explosions. It should also be of interest to other research workers who are studying low frequency sound propagation in the atmosphere.
