Overview

This is the first book to offer a complete and rigorous study of sound propagation and scattering in moving media that have regular and random inhomogeneities in adiabatic sound speed, density and medium velocity.
The book is an invaluable resource for engineers and scientists who work on outdoor noise control, on acoustical detection and ranging in the atmosphere, and on acoustal remote sensing of the atmosphere and ocean, whether they are based in the industry, or government and military laboritories and institutions. It will be required reading for researchers who use numerical methods in these fields and in its step by step approach makes it an important reference for teachers and graduate students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Of great practical value to have a modern textbook on wave propagation...rigorous and comprehensive. It is a must in the library of each scientist and engineer who works in accoustical remote sensing of atmosphere and oceanographic parameters, and in wave propagation.' - Acoustica

'The first book written in English specially devoted for a comprehensive treatment of the phenomena of sound propagation and scattering in moving inhomogeneous media... the book will be the most widely quoted reference on acoustics in moving inhomogeneous media for many years to come. The book should be recommmended to researchers, engineers, lecturers and graduate students specializing in the fields of atmosphere and oceanic acoustics, outdoor noise control, accoustics remote sensing and tomography, aeroacoustics, waves in random media, and wave propagation and diffraction.' - Applied Acoustics

'No doubt, the book will be the most widely quoted reference on acoustics in moving inhomogeneous media for many years to come... should be recommended to researchers, engineers, lecturers and graduate students.' - Applied Acoustics

'...practical... rigorous and comprehensive.... It is a must in the library of each scientist and engineer who work in acoustical remote sensing' - Acta Acustica

'The author's thorough scholarship in writing this book is particularly admirable. The many careful comparisons to the results of previous authors, along with the extensive and diverse list of references, attest to his extraordinary 'Of great practical value to have a modern textbook on wave propagation...rigorous and comprehensive. It is a must in the library of each scientist and engineer who works in accoustical remote sensing of atmosphere and oceanographic parameters, and in wave propagation.' - Acoustica
