Seismic surveying uses air guns to locate and determine the size of offshore gas and oil reserves. Ships tow arrays of air guns, which shoot down highdecibel explosives for seafloor mapping. Up to 20 air guns may go off at once. The sound waves reflect off rock layers below the ocean's surface, which allows sensors in the arrays to record them.
