CarbonNet wakes 90 Mile Beach residents early
Residents living near Golden Beach are concerned about loud sounds coming from a seismic survey, in which scientists are using sound waves to map the sea floor.
It's part of the CarbonNet project, searching for suitable locations for carbon capture and storage.
Coby Jones said the noise started yesterday, long before daylight.
"At 3am it was like bombs going off outside in the ocean. Really loud, there was a bit of a rumble right through the ground.
"It woke up my three kids, the dog's barking, and it hasn't stopped.
"I'm directly living in the area but people who are living 30 kilometres away in the next town can hear it also."
