State officials want to hear from the public as they review an upcoming seismic testing project off the coast of North Carolina.
The National Science Foundation plans to survey the sea floor this fall near several Atlantic states. Scientists say they want to know more about how our continental crust shifted and stretched.
They will use up to 36 seismic air guns, which release highly pressurized blasts of air. Environmentalists have said that will injure marine life and could disrupt migration patterns.
