Shhh … The Ice in Antarctica Is 'Singing'

Hello ATS. Have you ever wondered what Antarctica sounds like?


The Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica has a haunting voice. Winds scouring its chilly snow dunes create waves of surface vibrations; these produce near-nonstop seismic tones that resemble a mournful song, scientists recently discovered.

When they listened to recordings gathered over two years on the ice shelf, they found that the ice was almost constantly "singing" at a frequency of 5 hertz — five cycles per second — its doleful hum generated by the blowing of regional and local winds.

Eerie indeed. To me it almost sounds like it's breathing. What do y'all think?

Headphones recommended!

With all the pressure built up in ice its bound to make some noise.
Ever walk on a frozen lake at night?
Weird sounds.....

I've seen glaciers calving into the water in Alaska. You can literally hear the ice moving from all the pressure and the loud crack when a chunk breaks off into the water.

That sounds like a distorted commodore 64 sound..

I live near a big lake.. and when it freezes over, the ice make gunshot noises sound of projectiles passing by, like a old cowboy shootout
