Welcome! This site is part of a project done on aquatic soundscapes, and details the findings and observations from the project. The investigation focuses on the uses of aquatic sound in human life and what the aquatic soundscape sounds like with different types of water. Some of the questions that will be discussed include: How is artificial water sound and natural water sound different in terms of the sound itself? Does artificial water sound replicate well the sounds of natural water and to what degree? Can it accomplish the desired effect that natural water gives? How is what the underwater soundscape sounds like to the human ear different from the expected/imagined? What is the overall soundscape?
