Tracking Typhoons

Tracking Typhoons

In the western Pacific Ocean, massive tropical cyclones (called typhoons) occur throughout the year. Retailleau and Gualtieri (2019) show that seismology can be used to track and measure tropical cyclones as they churn through the ocean because they create “secondary microseisms.”
