are times when thermal layers form at various altitudes. Those can be
more pronounced during the evening hours, when the ground is still warm,
but the air at altitude is cooling quickly. These thermal layers can
affect the transmission of sound waves, making an aircraft seem quieter
as it passes overhead, especially if it is at a high altitude.
