Abstract:

A mathematical model is developed in the report for determining the square of the absolute value of the acoustic pressure within a shadow zone of the atmosphere which was produced by wind and temperature gradients. A computer program based on this model is included in the report. This program enables one to calculate the pressure amplitude squared in the shadow zone for a wide range of wind gradients, temperature gradients, and for different source frequencies. Author
