Still image from Studying How Elephants Communicate

Elephants can communicate over long distances using low-frequency sounds that travel both in the air and through the ground. Scientists are studying whether elephants can hear and interpret these ground vibrations. Using amplifiers, speakers, geophones, and video cameras, scientists have designed an experiment to test how elephant herds respond to an alarm call when it is played back through the ground.
