1 Sound Propagation in the Nocturnal Boundary Layer Roger Waxler Carrick Talmadge Xiao Di Kenneth Gilbert
2 The Propagation of Sound Outdoors (over flat ground) The atmosphere is a gas under the influence of gravity thermal stresses the Earth s rotation The ground is a porous elastic solid has large (compared with air) thermal conductivity reflects and attenuates sound properties can differ dramatically from place to place
3 The Diurnal Cycle (fair weather meteorology) The ground is thermally coupled to space heats up during the day cools off at night The air is thermally coupled to the ground Daytime temperature decreases with altitude turbulent 1 km winds slowed by friction Nighttime temperature increases with altitude stable with buoyancy waves stable layer acts as a lubricant for the wind night day neutral Temperature [ C]
4 Refraction of Sound by the Atmosphere The speed of sound in air is c 2 T Temperature gradients sound speed gradients refraction wavefronts propagate towards colder air clear days are upward refracting clear nights are downward refracting night day neutral Sound Speed [m/s] Similarly for wind shear wavefronts propagate towards slower air upwind is upward refracting downwind is downward refracting night day Wind Speed [m/s]
5 Equations of Atmospheric Mechanics The atmosphere is described by fluid mechanics ρ t + (ρv) = ρ ( v t + (v )v) + P = ρgẑ S t + v S = P = ρrt ds R = c p dt R T dp P mass conservation Newton s law heat equation ideal gas law second law The ground is described by poroelastodynamics The two are coupled by interface conditions
6 Meteorology versus Acoustics Variables split into slow (meteorological) and fast (acoustic) terms: v v met v ac ρ P T = ρ met P met T met + ρ ac P ac T ac S S met S ac The meteorological terms split into mean and fluctuating parts: v met v M v turb ρ met P met T met = ρ M P M T M + ρ turb P turb T turb S met S M S turb
7 Local Meteorology For distances km s, times tens of minutes mean quantities depend only on altitude mean vertical wind speed is zero z is altitude and H indicates horizontal v HM (z) ρ M (z) P M (z) T M (z) S M (z) Then dp M dz and v H is arbitrary. example: S M = S = gρ M P M = ρ M RT M S M S = c p ln T M (z) = T () g c p z T M T M () R ln P M P M () Temperature [ C] neutral Wind Speed [m/s]
8 The North American Nocturnal Jets (global generation of local winds) Air flows from warmer regions to cooler regions. During the day flow is impeded by ground friction mediated through the turbulent layer. At night flow is decoupled from the ground. A stiff wind develops above the stable layer. Can be supergeostrophic.
