Abstract: Once regarded as a nuisance, ambient seismic noise has recently opened up a new era of research at the  interface of solid Earth geophysics, oceanography, and atmospheric sciences. This unique kind of seismic sources, identified by the coupling of oceanic and atmospheric energy into the solid Earth, provides a new way of monitoring the global environment and for exploring the Earth’s interior. In this talk, I will give an overview of the environmental sources of ambient seismic noise, with an emphasis on the seismic sources associated with ocean storms. I will show how we can model ambient noise sources and seismic records worldwide through numerical simulations, and how we can retrieve the time-varying behavior and strength of atmospheric and oceanic events from seismological observations.
