Scientists Carry Out Ocean Floor Mapping for OW Development in North Carolina
U.S. scientists recently embarked on a mission to map the ocean floor off the coast of North Carolina.
The new data aims to find areas that would be ideal for wind farms with minimal impacts to sensitive fish habitats and ocean resources. This comes after the federal government allocated funds for wind energy projects off the coast of Rhode Island and Virginia.
With the increased interest and support for wind energy, North Carolina hopes to jump into the game shortly.
