The effects of ground and downward refracting meteorological conditions on the propagation of white noise from two source heights to four receiver heights were measured on an airfield with a view to validating a statistical curved-ray model for noise under downward refracting conditions over flat ground. The measured data supported the model when sound was propagated over an asphalted airstrip, but the model did not work for sound propagated over grassland, perhaps as a result of destructive interference between direct and reflected waves. The method of calculating the ground effect in ISO standard 9613-2 is also evaluated on the basis of the measured data.
