Abstract

The U.S. National Science Foundation and the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) have settled a lawsuit brought against NSF that had threatened to scuttle the use of air gun arrays for use in NSF-sponsored seismic and geological studies at sea.

The parties agreed to a 14 April dismissal of the suit.
