  1. One concern I have with offshore wind development is the transmission of vibrations /sound into the water. With so many marine mammals and other marine fauna relying on acoustics for both communication and foraging, I have wondered about how much sound is transmitted into the water by the process of wind generation, and what are the characteristics of that sound (amplitude, frequency, etc.). I have not looked exhaustively, but I have not seen any research regarding this issue in regards to offshore wind generation development. Do you have any information?
