Purdue ecologist Bryan Pijanowski and his team have developed apps for mobile phones, tablets and other technologies that people can use to capture the sounds of forests, deserts and other natural places over a 24-hour period during Earth Day next Tuesday.

Pijanowski says the ambitious Global Soundscapes Day project has enlisted partners around the world and will fill up to 10 terabytes of storage space with digital recordings.

He hopes to eventually fill public spaces, hospitals and other venues with sounds that "make us feel good, sounds that are peaceful and restful."
