Abstract

The effect of humidity on the velocity of sound waves is investigated (Eq. (5), Table I). The radius of curvature for a ray of sound which is propagated in the direction of the wind is given [Eq. (13)] and discussed. The amplitudes of sound waves as a function of the distance are given [Eq. (17)], and the relative importance of the quantities involved is discussed.
