A really striking piece in NPR today, via Gina Blaber’s Twitter (thanks, Tim O’Reilly):

Humans Turning Up Volume In Oceans [NPR “Science Out of the Box”]

A new report shows the way in which sound travels through the ocean has been impacted by global warming. A growing community of artists are working in media like sound to address environmental challenges. But it seems the planet is making some “sound art” of its own. Curious to hear what people think of the report.

  • I bet sound travels faster though all those dead zone too, without all those pesky fish in the way.

  • sounds scary. the sonar testing that they mention earlier is especially frightening to me. our mammalian friends are very important members of the ocean's ecology, as i'm sure merzbow can tell you.
