Abstract: The effect of forests on low frequency military noise propagation is unknown. As part of a joint project, ERDC-CERL and ERDC CRREL conducted measurements at the Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant located in Texarkana, Texas, to investigate these effects. In this report, the short-range measurements conducted by ERDC-CRREL are documented. Blast noise waveforms produced by C4 explosions at distances from 30 to 567 m were recorded and are presented in this report. In all, 42 different explosions were recorded, producing 314 high quality pressure waveforms for analysis. Additional reports documenting the long-range measurements and analyzing the recorded data are in preparation.
