Abstract:

Cortana will review, analyze, and extend the published foreign work on electro-acoustic effects in the atmosphere. Specifically, Cortana will (i) incorporate contemporary understanding of the data on the relevant parameters for ions and charged aerosols in the planetary boundary layer, to model charge density, masses, mobility, and effective volumes; (ii) simplify the existing models to eliminate irrelevant effects, (iii) calculate induced electric and magnetic fields above and below the planetary boundary layer resulting from an upwardly directed acoustic wave; (iv) incorporate insights from foreign work to model the infrasonic signals transmitted into the air from a submerged submarine.
