Ultrasound mammography, volcano monitoring for aircraft safety

What happens when sound is aimed at clogged arteries? How can inaudible noise from volcanic eruptions prevent costly delays for airplanes flying near them? How might a new ultrasound method for breast-cancer exams reduce false positives -- and the anxiety that accompanies them? Why may power tools pose a higher risk to hearing than conventional tests may suggest?

These and other questions will be addressed at the Fourth Joint Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and the Acoustical Society of Japan (ASJ), which will take place from November 28-December 2, 2006 at the Sheraton Waikiki and Royal Hawaiian Hotels in Honolulu, Hawaii. Acoustics is the science of sound and its applications. Over 1600 papers will be presented.

We encourage you to visit ASA's "World Wide Press Room" (http://www.acoustics.org/press) before and during the meeting. In the next week, the site will contain lay language versions of almost 20 meeting papers. These papers will enable you to cover the meeting, even if you can't leave your desk.

At a plenary session on December 1, ASA will present its 2006 Science Writing Awards in Acoustics for Journalists to producer Radek Boschetty for "The Noisy Ape," a BBC World Service radio documentary. The Science Writing Award to Professionals in Acoustics goes to "Sound Ideas," an article in Physics World by Taras Gorishnyy, Martin Maldovan, Chaltanya Ullal, and Edwin Thomas. Information on how to enter next year's science writing award can be obtained by contacting Ben Stein.

Reporters covering the meeting can receive a complimentary press badge to attend all sessions. Please fill out the reply form if you are interested in attending the meeting and/or receiving a copy of the book of abstracts. For media inquiries during the meeting, please f
