Abstract

Background sound in urban areas is generally characterized by human activity such as road traffic while the sounds of nature characterize more rural areas. Where the sounds of nature dominate, environmental factors such as temperature influence patterns of background sound. A trend of temperature dependence for background sound levels is shown during late summer night-time hours. Variation of the trend is evaluated over several years and at multiple sites. Audio confirmed that the background sound is dominated by crickets.
