Here's an animation of polarization of seismic noise that tracks Hurricane Matthew. This uses the IRIS NoiseToolkit based on Koper & Hawley, 2010. The dancing bars show the polarization vector of seismic noise at each station. Bar lengths are scaled by degree of polarization. Over on the Pacific side between 10/6-10/15 one can see the bars getting longer and pointing mostly North-South at USArray and Alaska Regional Network stations in Alaska. That's an effect of the system that is currently bearing down on the PNW. The accompanying overlain image of Significant Wave Height from NOAA Wavewatch III shows storm locations on 10/15 at 06:00.
Hurricanes and oceanic storms generate standing waves in the ocean with periods of around 5 seconds. The resulting pressure variations beating on the seafloor generate faint tremor, aka microseism, and can be detected and sometimes located, if strong enough, by seismic instruments thousands of kilometers inland.
-You can see the overall noise level jump followig an earthquake in the frame 10/13 3:00.
-Sufri & Koper first did polarization of noise for Hurricane Sandy (2014). My 2012 Sandy animation just looked at overall noise levels.
