The Music of Bubbles - Prof. Tim Leighton, University of Southampton

Gas bubbles in liquids are powerful generators of sound. They are, for example, the main sources of the sounds of waterfalls or breaking waves. The lecture explores how bubbles can track carbon dioxide absorbed in the oceans, the sound of ‘waterfalls’ on other planets, how dolphins use bubbles to aid hunting and how bubbles can help fight the coming ‘antibiotic apocalypse’.
