That's what the University of Purdue scientists would like you to do, and they made an app to facilitate it. It's called Record the Earth 2, and just like with movies, the sequel is always better than the original!The app lets users record audio snapshots of their surroundings and upload them to the Global Soundscapes Archive as part of a global citizen science program maintained by the Purdue University.

The researchers also want to understand humans' relationship with soundscapes – what sounds we love, dislike, or associate with changing seasons.
