The work described herein discusses the application of a frequency-wavenumber signal processing technique to signals from rectangular infrasound arrays for detection and estimation of the direction of travel of infrasound. Arrays of 100 sensors were arranged in square configurations with sensor spacing of 2 m. Wind noise data were collected at one site. Synthetic infrasound signals were superposed on top of the wind noise to determine the accuracy and sensitivity of the technique with respect to signal-to-noise ratio. The technique was then applied to an impulsive event recorded at a different site. Preliminary results demonstrated the feasibility of this approach.
