The sites are under the National control of the countries Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Mexico, Portugal, UK of Great Britain Northern Ireland and the United States. The data is a continuous stream of ambient noise, from each sensor the interest is in long term ambient noise recordings study of specific source functions and their temporal behavior.
