    • Isotopic Data Sonification: Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory 

      Kenney, Matthew; Ballora, Mark; Brantley, Sue (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-06)
      Each precipitation event has a unique fingerprint. This fingerprint is recorded in the duration of the event and the isotopic composition of the rainfall, as a result of differing proportions of oxygen isotopes. The ratio ...
    • A mobile sonification system for stroke rehabilitation 

      Schmitz, Gerd; Kroeger, Daniela; Effenberg, Alfred O. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-06)
      Growing evidence suggests that sonification supports movement perception as well as motor functions. It is hypothesized that real-time sonification supports movement control in patients with sensorimotor dysfunctions ...
