Fish Scattering Sound Waves Has Impact on Aquaculture

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Fisheries acoustics have been studied for over 40 years to assess biomass and optimize aquaculture applications, and researchers in France have examined the phenomenon of how fish scatter acoustic waves in a dense school of fish contained in an open-sea cage. They developed an approach to help overcome issues encountered in aquaculture relating to the evaluation of the total biomass of dense schools of fish. They will discuss their work at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Newswise: Finding Meaning in ‘Rick and Morty,’ One Burp at a Time

Finding Meaning in ‘Rick and Morty,’ One Burp at a Time

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

One of the first things viewers of “Rick and Morty” might notice about Rick is his penchant for punctuating his speech with burps. Brooke Kidner has analyzed the frequency and acoustics of belching while speaking, and by zeroing in on the specific pitches and sound qualities of a midspeech burp, aims to find what latent linguistic meaning might be found in the little-studied gastrointestinal grumbles. Kidner will present her findings at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Deployable Human-Scale Immersive Virtual Environments?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Combined with networks of sensors and controllers, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Collaborative Research Augmented Immersive Virtual Environment Laboratory Lab provides its users new modes of interactions between humans and virtual worlds, with experiences ranging from the familiar to the otherwise remote or downright imaginary.

Warmer temperatures will increase arsenic levels in rice, study shows

University of Washington

University of Washington researchers have found that warmer temperatures, at levels expected under most climate change projections, can lead to higher concentrations of arsenic in rice grains.

National Park Service Scientists: Does Aircraft Noise Make Birds More Vocal?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

National Park Service scientists analyzed nearly 1 million 10-second audio recording samples from national parks across the country and discovered a small increase in bird sound detection when an aircraft sound is also detected. During the 178th ASA Meeting, Kurt Fristrup will present the findings and how human responses to noise might be studied.

Newswise: Carpentry Compiler helps woodworkers design objects that they can actually make

Carpentry Compiler helps woodworkers design objects that they can actually make

University of Washington

UW researchers have created Carpentry Compiler, a digital tool that allows users to design woodworking projects. Once a project is designed, the tool creates optimized fabrication instructions based on the materials and equipment a user has available.

Harvesting Fog Can Provide Fresh Water in Desert Regions

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Fog harvesting is a potential practical source of fresh water in foggy coastal deserts, and current solutions rely on meter scale nets/meshes. The mesh geometry, however, presents a physiologically inappropriate shape for millimeter scale bulk bodies, like insects.
