Air pressure micro-oscillations of the impulse-type (period: 10–25 seconds) as recorded by Macelwane Electromagnetic Microbarographs in a small tripartite arrangement at Florissant, Missouri (near Saint Louis) are propagated in the direction and with a speed that is of the same order of magnitude as the wind speed in the lower layers of the atmosphere but not necessarily at the surface.
