Water is the latest collection to be added to the Environment and Nature section of British Library Sounds. Featuring 132 field recordings of various watery sources from around the world, the collection brings together the sounds of waves, waterfalls, streams, brooks, geysers and more.

With over a hundred unique recordings to choose from, many of which are being published online for the very first time, Water invites users to explore a selection of sounds from the Sound Archive’s growing collection of environmental field recordings.

As with its sister collection Weather, Water will be developed over time to include new recordings recently archived with the section.
