Abstract

Acoustic injury criteria for marine mammals are well defined and they are applicable to seismic sources. Several studies have suggested that marine seismic sources emit more high-frequency energy than is required for imaging. I show how the extent of the injury zone can be reduced by using a source array with an output spectrum that is partially attenuated at higher frequencies while probably not compromising image quality.
