Kroonenberg explains in an accessible manner which are the causes of these changes.

Infrasonic sounds in the earth
The rumbling of Mount Etna on Sicily can be measured as far afield as De Bilt. Infrasound from the volcano is very low frequency sound travelling through the atmosphere. It is inaudible to the human ear yet still measurable. So says seismologist Läslo Evers of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), who is researching infrasound and conducts measurements using special equipment. On Wednesday 8 March, he will deliver his inaugural lecture as part-time Professor of Seismo-Acoustics at TU Delft.
