Deep Ocean | Interactive Soundscape (Dolphin, Bubbles & Waves)

Mynoise.net made a deep ocean noise generator with dolphins.

Yes please I will take fifteen please.

(Like all noise gens there you can play with the sound levels for different channels. If the twittering and creaking of the dolphins (or any of the other channels) bothers you, you can turn ‘em off!)

rhamphotheca:

Sea foam is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater, particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter. These compounds can act as surfactants, or foaming agents. As the seawater is churned by breaking waves in the surf zone adjacent to the shore, the compounds trap air, forming bubbles which stick to each other through surface tension.
