2008 Seismic Exploration News Reports

High frequency multi-beam echo sounders are often used to scare away whales and dolphins as a precurcor to using a controlled seismic source of energy, such as a specialized air gun or a seismic vibrator to map the ocean floor during exploration. Due to the extremely high level of noise produced by seismic air-guns (that endanger large whales) ramping-up noise levels over hours of start-up is a legal requirement. The use of echo sounders avoids this delay. However, even the echo sounder can be dangerous to smaller whales and dolphins if it scares the animals into situations where they can die. This is just as serious of an issue.

Levels of noise in the world's oceans are causing serious problems for whales, dolphins. Undersea noise blocks animals' communication and disrupts feeding while Naval sonar has caused deaths. In some regions, the level of ocean noise is doubling each decade and protective measures are failing. "Humanity is literally drowning out marine mammals". (September, 2008)
