Meteorological effects change sound propagation.

Local and Seasonal Meteorological differences change sound propagation. Sound propagation is affected by atmospheric conditions. The FAA’s Environmental Assessment(EA) assumes a homogeneous atmosphere with a single temperature, humidity level and pressure. This doesn’t correlate with real-world conditions. Southern California is subject to persistent meteorological effects, such as inversion layers and prevailing winds. Temperature and humidity are …
