Effects of Humidity on Sound Propagation

Contrary to what many people think, there is more sound
attenuation in dry air than in damp air.
This effect is sigificant only at frequencies above 2kHz.
This means that high frequencies will be attenuated more
with distance than low frequencies will be, and that the
attenuation will be greatest when the relative humidity
is approximately 20 percent or less.
