BaseOps User's Guide, Chapter 11: Setting Weather Conditions

Weather conditions are an important part of a BaseOps case. Temperature, relative humidity, and atmospheric pressure strongly influence the absorption of sound by the atmosphere. This in turn influences the noise levels throughout your area of interest.

To set your case's weather conditions, first choose Weather from the object type selector dropdown list. Then set the weather conditions in the text pane.

You have two choices for how to specify weather conditions.

Important:

Atmospheric pressures that you supply to BaseOps should not be sea-level corrected.

Note:

You can select the units used to specify temperatures, atmospheric pressures, and sound absorption coefficients. See Setting the Case's Physical Units for more information.
