... a must-have for experts in the field of outdoor sound propagation seeking for a rigorous reference work. An extended overview of theories and their approximations is provided for predicting sound propagation in moving inhomogeneous media, starting from basic fluid dynamic equations. In addition, a number of relevant numerical techniques for such applications are discussed. -European Acoustics Association Newsletter, 2015 ... a well-written, illustrated, and comprehensive book on the subject. With up-to-date references, it is a must-have for graduates, engineers or scientists working on atmospheric and oceanic acoustics, aeroacoustics, acoustics of turbulent flows, acoustic remote sensing and noise pollution, and wave propagation in deterministic and random media. -Didier Dragna, Laboratoire de Mecanique des Fluides et d'Acoustique, Ecole Centrale de Lyon The selection of the topics in the book follows modern developments in the acoustics of moving inhomogeneous media. -Igor Chunchuzov, Oboukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics High-quality textbook of sound propagation in the atmosphere and the ocean, which are complex propagation media (inhomogeneous, moving). The material is extensive on analytical equations and results; this second edition also discusses the techniques to numerically solve these equations. -S. Cheinet, French German Research Institute of Saint-Louis (ISL) An extraordinary and thoughtful book on the subject with deep insight, comprehensive coverage and rich details. -Ning Xiang, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute It can be expected that Acoustics in Moving Inhomogeneous Media, Second Edition will be a standard reference for all scientific studies and applications in the acoustics of fluids. -Dr. Astrid A. Ziemann, TU Dresden, Chair of Meteorology The well written, substantial and rigorous content of the book makes it a must-have re
