Abstract : The author discusses various problems in acoustic climatology, i.e., the acoustic regime of a locality as determined by the excitation and propagation of sound waves. The propagation of sound in the atmosphere, ionosphere, and on earth is described. The concepts of sound shadow, wave channels, wave-guides, range of audibility, sonic vibrations, bioacoustics, etc., are discussed.
