World Oceans Day takes place every 8 June. It has been celebrated unofficially since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada’s International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the Earth Summit – UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[1] The Brundtland Commission, i.e. the World Commission on Environment and Development, provided the inspiration for a global oceans day. The 1987 Brundtland Report noted that the ocean sector lacked a strong voice compared to other sectors. At the first World Oceans Day in 1992, the objectives were to move the oceans from the sidelines to the center of the intergovernmental and NGO discussions and policy and to strengthen the voice of ocean and coastal constituencies world wide.
The Ocean Project, working in partnership with leading organizations from all sectors, including the World Ocean Network, Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and many others in its network of 2,000 organizations, has been promoting World Oceans Day since 2002 and together with World Ocean Network led a three-year global petition movement to secure official UN recognition. World Oceans Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in late 2008.[2]
World Oceans Day events are celebrated on 8 June, the closest weekend, the week, and the month of June. The day is marked in a variety of ways, including launching new campaigns and initiatives, special events at aquariums and zoos, outdoor explorations, aquatic and beach cleanups, educational and conservation action programs, art contests, film festivals, and sustainable seafood events. Youth have been playing an increasingly important role since 2015, including the development in 2016 of a World Oceans Day Youth Advisory Council (Wikipedia).
The following recording was recorded at midnight 29th of May in a wonderful weather nearby Hraunhafnartanga peninsula, close by the arctic circle.

In Önundarfjörður (fjord) northwest of Iceland is a small village, Flateyri. During the winter, avalanches are falling in the mountains all around the fjord.
In Oktober 1995 a huge avalanche hit Flateyri. Many houses were wiped away and 20 died. Several other avalanches and the crazy weather closed the road to the village so the only way for rescue team was from sea.
The first rescue unit pass a molded 45 years old dock in the bottom of the fjord at Holtstangi. This dock was made in 1950 for security reason if avalanches close the road and other communication to Flateyri
This terrible avalanche in the October night 1995, shows how important this dock was for the community, so it was rebuilt in the spring 1996.
This recording was made in the beach close to this dock 19th of June 2012

Bryggjan við Holtstanga 1. hluti

Ferjubryggja hefur lengið verið að Holti í Önundarfirði. Bryggjan var og er fyrst og fremst öryggisaðstaða fyrir Flateyringa, vegna þess hvað vegasamband um Hvilftarhlíð er ótryggt vegna snjóflóðahættu. Kom notagildi hennar berlega í ljós þegar snjóflóðið féll á Flateyri í október 1995.
Bryggjan var þá orðin 45 ára gömul og mikið fúin. Var því gripið til þess ráðs um vorið 1996 að endurbyggja bryggjuna og þá úr fúavörðum viði.
Hljóðritið sem hér má heyra ver tekið upp um miðnætti í fjörunni við hliðina á bryggjuni 19. júní 2012.

Í fjöruborðinu fyrir neðan Europe Villa Cortes GL hótelið á Tenerife er sjávarlaug. Sá ég fáar manneskjur synda í þessari laug. Hún leit því út fyrir að vera frekar líflaus. En þegar betur var að gáð var hún full af lífi. Í lauginni var urmull krabba, snigla og annarra kvikinda sem ég kann lítil deili á.
Síðla dags þann 22. desember 2011, rétt fyrir sólsetur, stakk ég hljóðnemum í laugina og gleymdi mér í rúman klukkutíma við að hlusta á einhver kvikindi gefa frá sér hljóð. Í bland við öldunið og fótatak fólks sem gekk um laugarbakkann mátti heyra ýmis hljóð. Öðru hvoru skvettust öldur inn í laugina en háværastir voru líklega sniglar sem nörtuðu botn og veggi laugarinnar í ætisleit.

Creatures in the pool

In the beach below the Hotel “Europe Villa Cortes GL” at Tenerife is a sea pool. It was probably build some years ago for people to swim, but today it is full of all kinds of algae, snails, crabs and other creatures, so it looks not popular for humans.
In the afternoon at 22 of December 2011, I put hydrophone in the pool and recorded more than one hour of mystique sound. Most audible sound are rumbling sound from the surf. Sometimes the waves goes all the way in the pool with splashing sound and sometimes footsteps can be heard when people walk by the pool side. But there is also many other sounds from organic creatures, most likely from hungry snails scratching the pool surface.

Trilla_fra_Flateyri

Um hvítasunnu þann 24. maí 2010 fór ég vestur á Flateyri og auðvitað fóru upptökutækin með. Fáir fuglar voru á sveimi í firðinum, kalt í veðri, með norðan kalda yfir daginn svo hljóð frá fuglum bárust lítið um fjörðinn.  Yfir blánóttina lægði. Mátti þá  helst heyra í hópum máffugla úti á miðjum firði suður og austur af Flateyri.
Ýmislegt hefur gengið á í Önundarfirði. Flestum er í minni snjóflóðið á Flateyri 1995 þar sem 20 fórust. Einnig hafa orðið mannskæð sjóslys, eitt hið mesta árið 1812, þegar sjö bátar týndust í einum og sama róðri. Fórust með þeim um 50 manns sem skildu eftir sig 16 ekkjur í sveitinni. Svo undarlega hafði brugðið við, að bæði vikurnar á undan og eftir var algert aflaleysi í firðinum en daginn, sem bátarnir fórust var mokveiði og allir fylltu báta sína á skammri stundu. Þeir fórust, sem ekki köstuðu fisknum fyrir borð.
Í Önundarfirði eru fjórir bæir, allir með sama nafninu;  Kirkjuból, og mun slíkt einsdæmi í nokkurri einstakri byggð á landinu.
Þennan vordag sem ég hljóðritaði reru örfáar trillur til fiskjar. Voru það helst útlendingar sem leigðu bátana fyrir sjóstangveiði. Heyra má í einum þessara báta á leið út á miðin í meðfylgjandi hljóðriti. Hljóðnemar voru staðsettir í fjörunni fremst á tanganum sunnan við fiskvinnsluhúsin á Flateyri.

Flateyri is a village with a population of approximately 300, it is the largest settlement on Önundarfjörður.
Flateyri has been a trading post since 1792, and temporarily became a major whaling center in the 19th century.
In October 1995 an avalanche hit the village, destroying 29 homes and killing 20 people. Since then a deflecting dam has been built to protect the village from any further avalanches.
