i am trying to find sources/references for any data or studies on the
possible impacts of seismic testing on coral reef communities. in particular
i am keen to know if anyone has expertise on the possible negative effects
of seismic testing done for oil/gas prospecting? I understand that during
seismic tests of this nature there is an exclusion zone for divers of up to
28 kilometres - which would imply fairly large sonic disruption!
