The many sounds created by water are among the most impressive ones found on our planet. The roar of the waves, the thunder of breaking waves on gravel and sand beaches, and the soft, steady rhythm of small waves are all part of the ocean sounds that have been fascinating us since the dawn of time.
Listening to the sound of waves and the roar of the surf is like travelling in time: just like the sound of weather and wind, the sonic experience of water and ocean has been with us since primordial times - and it is likely no different in distant galaxies and on faraway planets.
