Jeffrey A. Karson, professor emeritus of Earth and environmental sciences, was quoted by major media outlets around the world regarding the underwater 'banging' heard by the Coast Guard during the search for the missing Titan tourist submarine, which vanished during a sightseeing trip to the Titanic wreckage area.

In the articles, Karson explained that 'banging' heard by search and rescue vessels at the search site were likely to be 'debris' and 'junk' from the Titanic wreck.

Publications he was quoted in included Fox News, Daily Mail, USA Today and NBC News.
