Free Poster on Ocean Sound

Download a colourful and engaging poster for classrooms all about sound, with a focus on sound in the ocean. The poster introduces concepts such as frequency, amplitude, decibels, and spectrograms, with vibrant but clear illustrations of each. The poster is aimed at secondary school students or older children, but may be useful to other age groups as well.

Listen to the sounds behind the spectrograms at our new page on ocean sound!

This poster was a collaboration between Amy Dozier of MaREI, University College Cork (design, illustration and content) and Rosalyn Putland of CEFAS (content and spectrograms). Thank you to our colleagues at Aarhus University and the Unviersity of Hannover School of Veterinary Medicine.
