    • 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 ...
    • Using Published HRTFS with Slab3D: Metric-Based Database Selection and Phenomena Observed 

      Miller, Joel D.; Godfroy-Cooper, Martine; Wenzel, Elizabeth M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2014-06)
      In this paper, two publicly available head-related transfer function (HRTF) database collections are analyzed for use with the open-source slab3d rendering system. After conversion to the slab3d HRTF database format (SLH), ...
    • Binaural Reproduction Over Loudspeakers Using a Modified Target Response 

      Nawfal, Ismael; Atkins, Joshua (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2014-06)
      Crosstalk cancellation (XTC) is a technique that can be used to play binaural content, typically meant for headphone playback, over two or more loudspeakers. Though effective at creating a binaural spatial sound field at ...
