Re: Impacts from ultrasound and infrasound

do I understand correctly: you're interested in documentation on the effects, on whatever species, of non-audible sounds? - I would imagine that the best (most comprehensive) documentation would be for humans - is there much in this area? - I'd be interested in your findings

Subject: Impacts from ultrasound and infrasound


I am emailing to ask the group if anyone can direct me to publications (preferably reviews) on the impacts of ultrasound or infrasound on humans/animals. Typically, impacts are only considered for those noises that fall into a species auditory range, but I wanted to know more about potential impacts/likelihood for impacts for those sounds outside the auditory range (assuming they would be more physiological, rather than behavioral, where an animal would have to hear the sound in order to respond).

I am coming at this from a bit different angle, since I am considering this in the context of non-human hearing ranges (thus, infra- and ultrasonic ranges may be different depending on the species), specifically for marine species (fish, marine mammals, and sea turtles).

In order not to clog up everyone's email boxes, you can respond to me directly, if you like (email in my signature below).

Thanks for your help,
