Sounds of the Japanese Earthquake As Recorded by NOAA -- Japan Won't Stop Shaking


Scientists at the NOAA Vents Program at Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and Oregon State University listened to the sounds of the March 11, 2011 Honshu, Japan earthquake propagated through the earth's crust.

From the site: "The first sound file is from a hydrophone located in the central north Pacific, the second sound file and spectrogram is from a hydrophone located near the Aleutian Islands." Listen below.

Joel Achenbach quotes U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Ross Stein in the Washington Post: "It will take probably a decade before this aftershock sequence is over," Stein said. "The watchword in Tokyo should be long-term vigilance. Nobody should think this should go away in a few weeks or a few months."
