    Please elaborate. The English is not clear.

    Water is denser than air. The coupling is poor since the momentum transfer is limited by the difference in density. What is the impact of density (and bulk or elastic modulus) on frequency and speed of sound?

    What happens to the sound waves moving with and against wind? What is the effect of turbulence?
