The largest archive of natural sounds available on the web January 23, 2013


Why the Internet was created, if it can not give us access to nature? Photos – this is a good thing, but what about the sound? Scientists at Cornell University have digitized and uploaded to the free access to the web’s largest collection of natural sounds of the world.

Collection in the library began collecting Macaulay at Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology in 1929. Now all of this can be heard on the library website .

Digitization has about 150,000 audio recordings (more than 10 TB of data in the form of 7513 hours or 12 years). Collection is 9000 species: mostly birds, but also whales, elephants, frogs, monkeys, and other animals.

Entries may be freely used for everything – from advertising to research.
