  • Also known as the "voice of the sea", these are are a class of atmospheric infrasonic acoustical waves in marine storms by a non-linear interaction of ocean surface waves with the atmosphere. Due to low atmospheric absorption at these low frequencies, microbaroms can propagate thousands of kilometers in the atmosphere, and can be readily detected by widely separated instruments on the Earth's surface.
