DescriptionMeasurements of the two-dimensional acoustic field in a forest resulting from a source located outside the forest indicated that the attenuation pattern near the ground is significantly different from the pattern higher up in the forest. The patterns of attenuation support the recent theory that the forest floor is the main absorber of acoustic energy in the forest.
