Microbaroms and microseisms have nearly identical frequencies and a common direction of approach, viz., from the same ocean storms. This finding is indicative of a common generating source for both microbaroms and microseisms. The only mechanism that appears capable of transmitting energy into both the atmosphere and the sea bottom is associated with the surface waves in a storm area.
