In this world, there is no dearth of atmospheric sounds, for example, the sound of a waterfall or even the sound of the ocean waves crashing. But what about the atmospheric sounds that surround us everyday? How do they sound different from one another?
The sounds of the world around us depend on the quality and the duration of rainfall and other natural disasters like storms. When these things happen, they can produce very strong and violent storms, which are not only loud and disturbing, but also have the potential to cause damage to nearby houses, vehicles, and structures. These types of natural disasters and their effects, whether on the physical or psychological level, should be considered in the planning of weather forecasts. Knowing how these sounds affect people is also crucial in creating a soundscape for any area.
Rain falling on the earth is not a constant thing. It has a seasonal pattern and varies from year to year and season to season. Some parts of the world are hit with more heavy rains while others are left untouched. This variation in the amount of rainfall does not only result to the intensity of the sounds. It also depends on the climatic conditions in the area of occurrence.
For instance, during dry and sunny seasons, the air around us is moist but quiet, while rainy days and nights are full of noise. In humid areas, the air is dry and cool and during rainy days and nights, it is hot. These are the usual conditions of the atmospheric soundscape. And, as we can see from this information, there is a direct relation between rain and the sounds it makes.
Soundscape is the process of combining the audio components of nature and man. As the weather becomes more violent, atmospheric sounds will become more severe and the atmospheric sounds will become louder and will not have any type of variation. Sounds of nature will also change their tempo and rhythm. They will also change from being calm to being angry and they might also go on repeating.
These changes will not only affect the atmospheric conditions, but will also affect the weather around us and will create a storm-like atmosphere. When the atmospheric conditions are such that the rain becomes more intense, these changes will bring about more rain. And when the atmospheric conditions are such that the wind blows more powerfully, then the changes will also make the windy air more intense.
The atmosphere will start to become more unstable as the change occurs and it will create more instability in the atmospheric environment. Then, the precipitation will become more intense as well. This will produce even more instability and more precipitation. And if the atmospheric conditions are more severe, then the change is going to be more violent.
There is a lot of information regarding the atmospheric change, but unfortunately, not much information is available regarding this kind of change. We may never know all the details and there is no way to stop the change from happening.
But we can control the change and the atmospheric soundscape that we experience at a particular place or even at a particular time. In fact, this is the basic principle of controlling the weather.
The soundscape is created by different atmospheric sounds. Some sound is produced by animals, while other sound is created by the human beings who use these sounds. A sound that is created by a dog is called a dog’s bark, while the sound created by a horse is called a hoof sound. These kinds of sounds are produced by many animals because they are part of the nature is part of us.
Animals are natural, and they do not change, whereas human beings do. As we are part of nature, we are responsible for what happens to the nature.
Human beings can change the atmospheric soundscape if we use the soundscape that we create and use it to our advantage. The human beings can control the atmospheric soundscape with the use of soundscapes that we create.
