Australian Team Tests Seismic Effects

Researchers at the Australian Institute of Marine Science have conducted what they’re calling the first real-world seismic experiment to determine the effects of marine noise on fish and oysters. Using the seismic vessel the BGP Explorer, the researchers surveyed two sites off the northwest of Western Australia over the course of 10 days. The collaborative experiment involving more than 100 people took a year to design and coordinate and could provide answers on the effects of marine noise.
