Np mate.
Lol, I don't know him personally, but I know a few guys at NOAA so I will see what he says. Fox is not in charge of the acoustic program anymore, but he was up till 2004 so he may still be in possession of information.

E-mail sent, hopefully, it will reveal further information.



Close enough for me wink2.gif Very cool to be emailing friends at NOAA grin2.gif I appreciate the question being asked.

Matt,

First let me thank you for showing me bloopwatch.org!  I had no idea
such a site existed.  As for the slowed down version of the original
bloop, I think what we're hearing are processing artifacts.  The
original hydrophone samples were digitized at 100 samples per second
(due to limitations of batteries, disk drives, etc.) and high-passed
filters at around 1 Hz, so only frequencies from 1 - 50 Hz were
recorded.  This works fine for earthquakes, large whales, and whatever
the bloop sound is.  Human hearing can just barely make it down to 50
Hz, which is why we sped the signal up to the 16-800 Hz range: so that
it could be heard.  Reshifting it down to the original frequency band
would put it below human hearing again, so I have to believe that what
we ARE hearing is some artifact of the processing.  Since I seem to have
a knack for naming things, I'll call it the caliope sound, since it
sounds to me like an old steam caliope.

As you noticed, I have moved out of my acoustics research and into
senior management, but I am not aware of any new insights into the bloop
or other sounds.  My old Vents group continues to collect data and
recently had hydrophones deployed off Antarctica.  I often suspected
that some of these sounds were related to ice processes, since they
always seemed to come from due south, but was never able to verify.
Good luck with your studies.  -cf

It is nice to be able to get some good information. Also he was really quick to get back to me and a really friendly e-mail. See science is not as cold as people make out.

Lol, no it is more about the mixing fiction (Cthulhu) with science (the bloop).

So does that mean all the bloop is. Is just a some kind of old steam caliope or whatever? (Replying to MattShark)

Hehe, Christopher hey, saved me a fall!

Thank you so very much!!!

Incredibly informative, the sound at Bloopwatch cannot be the original recording. Fascinating.

Ice!! I never would have thought, with the climactic shifts, and atmospheric pressures from El Nino Ice could surely make such a groaning sound.

Either that or The Thing is defrosting LOL.

Very sound theory, no pun intended. Just great to hear it from the people involved. Thanks again m8 thumbsup.gif I hope we hear this sound again. It could be hugely important to us if a massive geological change is underway. Then again, based on that assumption, maybe I hope we do not hear it again.

lol, no mate.
A caliope is a musical instrument. NOAA thing the sound is related to ice in the Antarctic.
