Will Offshore Wind Impact Seals?

Will offshore wind impact seals? This article, Seal Wears Headphones for Science, describes one way of finding out: Scientists in northern Germany are fitting a seal with headphones and electrodes to help them determine the noise impact of planned offshore wind stations. According to the article, the aim is to find out whether construction and operation of the wind-based power plants will adversely affect seals, whose hearing is up to 10 times more developed than that of humans.
