FYI: The Sounds of Pure Silence

Even when we think we are listening to silence, we still hear ambient sounds of our urban and rural environments.  Scientist Gordon Hampton, with his research project One Square Inch has traveled the world in search of pockets of pure silence.  He found one such spot in the Hoh Rain Forest in Washington State.

I found the article on scientist Gordon Hampton's research about sound in the Hoh Rain Forest in Washington Magazine, (Summer 2010) or issue #5. While I don't have the online link to this article, you can learn more about this research at
