back Listening to Raindrops

  Drizzle is surprisingly lound underwater because the small raindrops generate bubbles as they hit the water. These similar-sized bubbles oscillate when they're young, producing a high frequency bell-like tone. (Image by Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC. Recording from Jeffrey A.
