My principal research interest lies in the field of outdoor sound propagation. Recent research has concentrated on improving outdoor sound measurements by reducing wind noise in measurement microphones. We are developing quantitative methods of predicting wind noise contributions from measurements of the wind speed fluctuations. This work combines meteorology, fluid dynamics and acoustics to develop and validate theoretical expressions. An extensive measurement program has been very successful in identifying inaccurate and wrong theories that have appeared in the literature.
