Worried about Underwater Creatures, Scientists Want to Hush the Noisy Oceans


“[O]ceans have actually become very loud due to man-made noise from oil rigs, sonar and ship propellers. And scientists are worried that all that added noise is hurting marine life. So they’re planning a massive experiment to quiet the ocean and study what kind of impact that quieting has. It’s called the ‘International Quiet Ocean Experiment’. WBUR All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer spoke about this project with Jesse Ausubel, director of the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University in New York and an adjunct faculty member at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.”
