Abstract : A computer program written in FORTRAN II for the purpose of studying guided infrasonic (acoustic-gravity) waves in the atmosphere is described. The deck listing of the main program and 43 subroutines is included. The program is based on the multilayer approximation which considers the atmosphere as consisting of a large number (up to 100) of layers, each having constant temperature and wind velocity. Such a model atmosphere may be chosen to approximate any continuously stratified model atmosphere. The report includes instructions for the operation of the program and examples of output. (Author)
