Science Exchange Talk: Hidden Sounds: How they could help predict the weather

Hidden Sounds: How they could help predict the weather

Andrew Charlton Perez and Graeme Marlton, University of Reading

Tuesday 8th May, 7:30pm, Wallingford School Library

Imperceptible to humans without specialist recording equipment, low-frequency sound waves are present throughout the atmosphere.  Where do these waves come from? How are they linked to nuclear non-proliferation, and why in the future might we use them to improve our long-range weather forecasts?  Not only will you learn all about these hidden sounds, but by coming along to Science Exchange Wallingford, you might also get to hear them!

Science Exchange Wallingford’s next meeting is at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8th May in Wallingford School Library, St George’s Road, Wallingford.  Meetings are very informal. Speakers talk for about half an hour, then we break for refreshments and return for a lively question and answer session.  We are grateful that the support of local company Triaster, Wallingford School and the generosity of our speakers ensures that each event is free to attend.  We are also privileged to be a Café Scientifique.  (http://www.cafescientifique.org/).
