Oceanic Noise

Oceanic Noise

 

infrasonic waves originating above the surface of the ocean in strong wind as a result of the vortex formation behind wave crests. Because infrasonic sound has low absorption, it can extend over great distances, and as its speed significantly exceeds the speed of a moving storm, oceanic noise can serve as an advance storm warning.
