On Saturday the featured Media of the Day at Wikimedia Commons was this audio clip of the “singing” sounds of an iceberg.
Click on the player and you’ll hear amazing squeaking and groaning noises. At first you’d think it was the sound of a boat but soon you hear thumps, snaps and grinding as the iceberg shifts.
If you don’t want to listen to all 4+ minutes of iceberg sounds, begin playing the clip and let the audio bar fill. Then click on the bar at the 3/4 mark to hear some amazing roars and sawing noise.
Who knew that water could sound so industrial!
