Oregon Coast retains its reputation for having a rather boisterous coastline – Whales, fishers and surf!

Since OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center will be testing an array of possible wave energy devices to see how they perform off Oregon’s very wavy coast, marine scientists first wanted to determine what’s the coast’s average underwater noise level. So they sampled a year’s worth of sounds to set a “base line” of what’s already occurring offshore before wave energy devices, waiting to be tested, show up off the south Newport Jetty and out a ways.

Recording all ocean sounds off Newport for a year was a big challenge. But they did it. They got a year’s “song of the ocean.” Here’s the story from the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Click here.
