hi coral-listers,
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!
