The science of sound
Date:4/11/2011

Sonic booms, the science of making music, the impact of noise on people and animals, and bursts of sound-induced light are just some of the intriguing topics that will be presented at the 161st Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA).

The meeting will take place May 23-27, 2011, in scenic Seattle, Washington, at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel. The ASA offers complimentary press registration to bona fide working journalists; see details below. Journalists may also remotely access meeting information with ASA's World Wide Press Room, which will go live one week before the conference begins.

More than 1,300 papers will be delivered at this premier international meeting of scientific, environmental, and medical acoustics. Highlights include sessions on the impact of noise on land and sea animals; the use of sound to study the body and treat disease; new developments on hearing implants in children and adults; and how noise impacts our medical care, schools, and home life.

Preliminary Meeting Highlights

MONDAY, MAY 23

Listening and Learning in a Simulated Classroom:
Researchers studied how noise affects students' ability to comprehend in the classroom.

Preparing to Hear Thunder on Titan:
Saturn's moon Titan has rain, albeit in the form of methane. It may also have lightning and researchers have proposed a way to detect it by 'listening' for the telltale rumble of alien thund
