Abstract : This report includes: PULSE DISTRIBUTION ANALYSIS OF SCATTERED SOUND, by Michael D. Mintz. 4 Nov 60, 32p. illus.An attempt is made to measure acoustic scatter attenuation produced by atmospheric turbulence. Laboratory experiments on scattering of sound by turbulence are described; in particular, a new (over) experimental technique involving pulse-height analysis of scattered sound. (Author)
