Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recent research on the prediction of wind noise contributions from the measured turbulent velocity spectrum has led to a better understanding of what meteorological variables are necessary to analyze and compare wind noise measurements on infrasound arrays. In this talk, we will describe the variables necessary to correlate different contributions to the pressure spectrum, depending on the sensor configuration and arrangement. The instrumentation necessary to study surface pressure fluctuations on wind screens, the intrinsic turbulence-turbulence pressure fluctuation, the mean shear-turbulence fluctuation pressure, and the surface pressure fluctuations above flat surfaces will be discussed. The case of elevated shears above vegetation layers is particularly important to infrasound arrays. A theoretical investigation has identified what meteorological parameters must be evaluated in order to compare theory to measurement.
