Session3 Fieldnotes

The ending procedure was corrupted since the audio device showed remaining time 0 and stopped after 1:58min. But I recognized this later.I started at Praia da Luz with activating and I was doing nothing except sitting, eating and drinking. Then I walked down to the other beach at Matosinhos and sat down at the beach where I recognized that the ZOOM device showed the error. Checking at home showed that this was strange behaviour since the files had been deleted and 4GB of free space should have been available. Therefore I perform now a test tasks with the empty SD card and letting the ZOOM run as long as possible to see if the same error re-occurs. When inspecting the data there was a strong artefact in the urban sound signal which is typical for SMS or mobile phone call in near proximity to the device. The signal is in this case crystal clear and shadowing the entire background signal. Interesting enough, there is perfect alignment with the according peaks in the GHz sound signal, although hidden much more in the background noise.
