1 Scope
2 Normative references
3 Reference atmospheric conditions
4 Attenuation coefficients owing to atmospheric
  absorption for pure-tone sounds
5 Calculation procedure for pure-tone attenuation
  coefficients
6 Accuracy of calculated pure-tone attenuation
  coefficients for various ranges of the variables
7 Calculation of attenuation by atmospheric absorption
  for wideband sounds analyzed by
  fractional-octave-band filters
8 Application to room acoustics
Annex A (informative) - Physical mechanisms for atmospheric
        absorption
Annex B (informative) - Conversion of humidity data to molar
        concentration of water vapor
Annex C (informative) - Effect of inhomogeneous, real atmospheres
Annex D (informative) - General spectrum-integration method
        for calculating the attenuation by atmospheric
        absorption of wideband sounds analyzed by
        fractional-octave-band filters
Annex E (informative) - Approximate method for calculating
        the attenuation by atmospheric absorption of wideband
        sounds analyzed by fractional-octave-band filters

Defines an analytical method to calculate the attenuation of sound as a result of atmospheric absorption for a variety of meteorological conditions when the sound from any moderate-amplitude source propagates through the atmosphere.
