A study from Syracuse University has shown an increase in sound at the bottom of the sea by at least 20 decibels in the last 50 years. The objective of the research was to measure the impact of noise pollution on the behavior of whales living in coastal waters of the North Atlantic.

Scientists confirmed that, for example, the noise from ships changes how cetaceans look for food. They also found that the noise interferes with communication between aquatic mammals.
