Tour the Ocean through the Art of Sound
The ocean is one of the largest ecosystems on our planet. From eye-catching waves to the darkness of the twilight zone, it’s a place filled with mystery and rapid change.
Tumblr media
For a scientist studying ocean color at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, there was one more question–what does it sound like?
Before long, a “symphonic ocean experience” was born, combining satellite imagery, ocean color data and programming expertise. Learn more about how data gets converted to music and sound here:
youtube
This World Oceans Day, enjoy a tour of the ocean set to sound. Here we go:
Bering Sea
This melody explores the phytoplankton blooms in the western Bering Sea along the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula collected by Aqua/MODIS on May 15, 2021. The melody created for this image was aimed at capturing the movement of the eddies or the circular movements of water. Data came from the image’s red, green, and blue channels.
youtube
Rio de la Plata
This melody explores a spring bloom in the South Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil, lending the water many different shades of green, blue, and brown. The Rio de la Plata estuary in the northwest corner of the above image gets most of its tan coloration from sediments suspended in the water. The melody paired with the data evokes the sediment plumes and swirls happening off the coast.
youtube
Coral Sea
Data for the sounds of the Coral Sea were collected over the course of one year from the Aqua/Modis satellite. The information was extracted from a series of 32-day rolling averages for the year 2020, displaying the movement of chlorophyll a data.
youtube
Chlorophyll a is a specific form of chlorophyll used in photosynthesis. It absorbs most energy from wavelengths of violet-blue and orange-red light. It is a poor absorber of green and near-green portions of the spectrum, and that’s why it appears green.
Western Australia
Off the coast of western Australia is the appearance of swirls in the ocean. To catch the movement of the Indian Ocean, data was collected from 31 days of imagery examining blue wavelengths of light. The information was gathered from the Suomi-NPP/VIIRS instrument aboard the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) series of spacecraft.

More moments of zen
Looking for more moments of zen? Explore them with NASA’s Soundcloud page, where many are out of this world. Curious on how we get these breathtaking ocean images? Take time to read about Goddard Oceanographer Norman Kuring and how he helped create them.

If earth really is a death world, then I’m sure the practice of worshiping Gaia would seem very terrifying interesting to most extraterrestrials.
Come to think of it, in most of the religions I’ve heard of or read about, deities embodying the Earth are usually the most powerful, terrifying, and awe-inspiring, as well as some of the most beloved.

“ When we think of farmers growing crops, we imagine food for people. However, 75% of all agricultural land around the world is used for livestock production. Imagine someone offered you an investment opportunity—you invest $100, and you get only $40 back. That’s a bad deal, right? But that’s exactly what we’re doing with our food system. For every 100 grams of protein we put into feeding animals raised for food, we get back only 40 grams of protein from chicken, 10 grams of protein from pork, and just 5 grams of protein from beef. This is a colossal waste of resources. In fact, if we cut global meat consumption in half and used all of that farmland to grow fruits and veggies for people to eat directly—instead of growing corn and soy to feed animals on factory farms—we could feed every single person on earth today, plus an extra 2 billion people! We just need to eat more efficiently by eating lower on the food chain.” -VeganOutreach.org
