    The way of the future: using sounds to monitor landscapes.

    Friday, 11 December, 2020

    Imagine yourself standing on a beach. Close your eyes. What do you hear? We don’t need to see to understand our location, what we hear can tell us about our environment. The sound of the ocean can tell us if it is a calm day or whether the surf is good; we can identify which species of birds are present on the beach or in the adjacent vegetation by their voices, wing beats and footwork. The sound of the wind passing through the vegetation can indicate whether there are casuarinas or coconut palms fringing the beach; and voices, panting and barking can indicate if there are people exercising their dogs or families playing nearby.
