  2. What does rarefied mean?
    n. 1. The condition of being rarefied. 2. a. A decrease in density and pressure in a medium, such as air, caused by the passage of a sound wave. b. The region in which this occurs. American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition. Copyright © 2016 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company.
  3. How do rarefaction waves expand?
    Rarefaction waves expand with time (much like sea waves spread out as they reach a beach); in most cases rarefaction waves keep the same overall profile ('shape') at all times throughout the wave's movement: it is a self-similar expansion. Each part of the wave travels at the local speed of sound, in the local medium.
  4. What is a rarefaction curve?
    This curve is a plot of the number of species as a function of the number of samples. Rarefaction curves generally grow rapidly at first, as the most common species are found, but the curves plateau as only the rarest species remain to be sampled.
