The Sounds of California Air Pollution
Using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, environmental science, policy, and management doctoral student Gabriel Isaacman and a colleague from Yale have created sounds from air samples collected around California by UC Berkeley air pollution researchers. The results are sonic representations of air quality in the Caldecott Tunnel, Bakersfield, Pasadena, and the Sierras. The pair co-authored an article published in the Atlantic Monthly on September 10.
