Would you like to listen to the sounds of an antarctic iceberg on this mp3 recording? Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute used seismic technology, normally used for measuring earthquakes and tectonic movements, to record sounds made by the B-09A iceberg. The 50 x 20 kilometre iceberg had collided with an underwater peninsular and was slowly scraping around it. Then it stuck fast to the seafloor, causing tidal pressure to force water through its crevasses and tunnels at high pressure. The iceberg literally started ‘singing’. This recording was originally at 0.5Hz, far below the range of human hearing, so the mp3 recording is speeded up to bring it into audible range.
