Characterizing the oceanic ambient noise as recorded by the dense seismo-acoustic Kazakh network

Alexandr Smirnov et al.

Data sets

Results of the microseism and microbarom detections by the seismo-acoustic Kazakh network and of the microbarom simulation for the infrasound arrays of the network Smirnov, A., De Carlo, M., Le Pichon, A., Shapiro, N., and Kulichkov, S.

Short summary
Seismic and infrasound methods are techniques used to monitor natural events and explosions. At low frequencies, band signal can be dominated by microbaroms and microseisms. The noise observations in the Kazakh network are performed and compared with source and propagation modeling. The network is dense and well situated for studying very distant source regions of the ambient noise. The prospects are opening for the use of ocean noise in solid Earth and atmosphere tomography.
