Abstract : As with previous Symposia, the purpose of the meeting was to exchange information on current research, identify areas needing additional work, and coordinate activities as much as possible. Attendees at the meeting included representatives from most groups with active research programs in the area of atmospheric sound propagation. The meeting was divided into seven short Sessions: sound propagation in the atmosphere, diffraction and ground effects, meteorology, non linear propagation, computational models, ground effects, turbulence and Scattering. The symposium ended with an open discussion and plans for a future meeting in 1998. The Seventh Symposium confirmed current interest in the effects of atmospheric turbulence. The final lively discussion dearly showed that strong interactions between acousticians and specialists of fluid dynamics are needed to make significant progress in this area.
