What Is the Sound of 130 Wind Turbines Turning?
www.whoi.edu/oceanus/feature/cape-wind

In March 2012, Mooney and WHOI biologist Laela Sayigh began recording the underwater “soundscape” in the 25-square-mile area between Nantucket and Cape Cod where a company called Cape Wind plans to put 130 440-foot-high turbines. Using digital acoustic monitoring instruments anchored to the ocean bottom, they plan to measure and identify all underwater sound at the site—before, during, and after construction. The first-of-its-kind experiment in the United States, they believe, could serve as a template for assessing possible impacts, good and bad, of future offshore wind turbine projects.
