Fish Choruses (audio) American Geophysical Union Share Print E-Mail Loading audio... Caption This sonic time-lapse captures audio recorded from August 29 through September 22 on a coral reef shelf edge habitat called Weinberg Reef. It is composed of stitched-together two-second clips from each day at 7:40 p.m., the peak chorusing period for a yet-to-be-identified fish species. Hurricane Irma occurs approximately 5 seconds in, and you can hear the chorus intensify after the hurricane passed. Sound pressure levels in this frequency band (150-450 Hz) were over 5 decibels greater (almost a doubling of sound pressure!) the three days after the hurricane (September 7 through September 9) compared with the three days prior (September 4 through September 6) during this time period.
