UWindsor prof to be featured on Japanese science show

Colin Novak is big in Japan.

And if the associate professor of mechanical, materials and automotive engineering isn’t yet, he will be soon.

A camera crew from Japan’s national public broadcaster NHK will be at the University of Windsor on April 16 to report on Dr. Novak’s investigation into the source of the infamous Windsor Hum.

Novak’s Noise Vibration and Harshness-Sound Quality Group set up low-frequency noise monitoring stations across the city’s west end to record noise within the hum’s frequency range.

The investigation revealed the hum’s likely source was a blast furnace on Zug Island on the Detroit River.

The segment will air on NHK’s television show Cosmic Front Next, a program that works to “unravel the universe and the mysteries concerning earth.”
