Round the world yachtsman recording unique underwater soundscape

A British yachtsman, preparing to sail non-stop, around the world in a 40 foot boat, will be recording the underwater sound of the oceans as he goes.Alex Alley is ready and waiting for the right weather for his attempt to break the record for a non-stop, single handed circumnavigation — a trip that will take him through some of the noisiest and quietest places on earth, towing a specially designed foil containing a hydrophone – or underwater microphone.

The recording will help researchers at the University of Portsmouth’s Institue of Marine Sciences (IMS) study the impact of noise pollution on the marine environment and whether the remotest areas of the world’s oceans remain unaffected by man-made noise.The recording equipment will capture two minutes of audio out of every 5 minutes all the way round, storing it on a 2TB hard drive.
