We examine a possible role of the acoustic channel in the influence of cosmic processes on the Earth's biosphere. Possible mechanisms of the transformation of the energy of cosmic processes into acoustic oscillations in the atmosphere and lithosphere are discussed. The relationship of infrasonic oscillations in the atmosphere to the solar activity is established for the first time. The possible mechanisms of the influence of acoustic oscillations on the processes in the biosphere are analyzed.
