Stormquakes: New phenomenon discovered

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Hurricanes are one thing. Earthquakes are another. But these hazardous events aren't mutually exclusive, and sometimes one can even feed the other.

In a new study, scientists have identified what they say is a new geophysical phenomenon entirely unknown to science – a hybrid entity where powerful storms such as hurricanes trigger seismic episodes that can rumble for hours or even days.

"We're calling them 'stormquakes'," says geophysicist Wenyuan Fan from Florida State University.

and then

At first read I was wondering why this was worthy of the level of excitement the researchers are expressing.  It seemed they were giddy over discovering the source for ambient noise but then the light bulb appeared.  Once they can quantify and thoroughly understand the mechanism, they will be on the way to potentially harvesting some uses for a naturally occurring energy transmitter/interface.
