Can Sound Protect Eagles from Wind Turbine Collisions?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Every year, bald and golden eagles are killed when they inadvertently fly into wind turbine blades. One possible way to prevent these deaths is to chase the birds away with acoustic signals. To determine what types of sounds are most effective in deterring the birds, researchers tested the behavioral responses of bald eagles to a battery of both natural and synthetic acoustic stimuli. Auditory neuroscientist JoAnn McGee will present the results of those tests at the 177th ASA Meeting, May 13-17.

How Loud is Too Loud When It Comes to Sports Whistles?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Referees and others using whistles on the job need a simple way to determine whether it’s harmful to their hearing, so researchers set out to put it to the test and to provide some clarity and damage risk criteria for impulse noise exposures. To do this, the group carefully measured and analyzed the acoustic signature of 13 brands of whistles identified as the “most commonly used” by 300 sports officials -- both indoors and outdoors. They will present their findings during the 177th ASA Meeting.

From Earth’s deep mantle, scientists find a new way volcanoes form

Cornell University

Far below Bermuda’s pink sand beaches and turquoise tides, geoscientists have discovered the first direct evidence that material from deep within Earth’s mantle transition zone – a layer rich in water, crystals and melted rock – can percolate to the surface to form volcanoes.

New cyber resilience report highlights Argonne’s global expertise

Argonne National Laboratory

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has sought expertise from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in addressing cyber resilience issues. In February, the WEF published a study developed with the help of Argonne experts that outlines the steps the electricity industry should take to combat the growing risk associated with operating in an interconnected and interdependent environment, where the consequences of a cyber-attack could have a cascading effect on the electricity ecosystem.
