Abstract : This report describes the application of a technique known as data sonification. The technique entails creating auditory mappings for interpreting scientific data. The paper first provides background on research in the use of computer- generated audio for data interpretation. The remainder of the paper discusses a preliminary investigation in which the technique was employed to augment a scientific data visualization. The results of this investigation are reported and directions for further study are indicated.
