Title: INSPIRE: Ionosphere Radio Experiments
Url: http://www.spaceweather.com/glossary/inspire.html
Creator: Philips, Tom
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: This site, courtesy of Interactive NASA Space Physics Ionosphere Radio Experiments (INSPIRE,) monitors atmospheric sounds that are largely caused by lightning at radio frequencies. The page allows you to listen in on sferics, tweeks, whistlers and other strangely named sounds. This research is in an experimental stage, the site states: "This is an experimental resource. We hope to maintain the VLF audio stream 24 hours a day with infrequent interruptions for maintenance. However, we can't guarantee that it will be available all the time. Let us know if you encounter problems." This is an interesting resource for those interested in atmospheric science or space study.
