Exxon Oil Co. won federal permission Thursday to explore for oil off the coast of Santa Barbara using extremely loud underwater air gun blasts despite concern that the noise could harm whales in the vicinity. The oil company, which will fire repeated 240-decibel blasts from the seismic guns to map underwater oil reserves, received approval from the National Marine Fisheries Service to engage in the "incidental harassment" of nine species of whale, including the migrating gray whale.
