Streamflow2KoraStream flow is expressed as a pattern of high notes on plucked Kora which start medium pitched and move higher as stream flow increases.
Soil WaterGuitarNotes are low for dry soils and increase as soil water storage increases.
EvapotranspirationAfrican MarimbasMarimbas go up and down as evapotransporation increases and decreases.

Wind VelocityShakersThe volume of the shaker pattern increases as wind velocity increases. The panning of the shakers from the left to the right speaker is controlled by wind direction.
Solar RadiationGlass ChimesBoth pitch and volume increase as solar radiation increases.
