(AP)—The U.S. government is planning to use sound blasting to conduct research on the ocean floor along most of the East Coast, using technology similar to that which led to a court battle by environmentalists in New Jersey.
A federal judge says he will not grant New Jersey's request to halt federally funded scientific research that includes blasting the ocean floor with sound waves.
New Jersey environmental officials went to federal court Thursday trying to block a federally approved research plan that involves blasting the ocean floor off New Jersey with loud sound waves.
(Phys.org) —A decade of research by Rice University scientists has produced a two-dimensional model to prove how gas hydrate, the "ice that burns," is formed under the ocean floor.
Not long after the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 was declared missing, the world's attention was focused on a remote, poorly known area of the Eastern Indian Ocean as the possible location of the lost aircraft.

Another phase of the search for missing flight MH370 off Western Australia has drawn to a close with still no evidence of the aircraft's final resting place.
Deep beneath the ocean floor off the New Jersey coast lie secrets that could help scientists predict how climate change might affect one of the most popular shorelines in the country.
The countries searching for the missing Malaysian jet are assessing a claim by a resource survey company that it found possible plane wreckage in the northern Bay of Bengal, Malaysia's defense minister said.
