Ringing of global atmosphere confirmed in UH research
  • The Earth’s entire atmosphere has rings similarly to a bell - at a low-pitched fundamental tone and many higher-pitched overtones.
  • We can’t hear it, but it happens in the form of large-scale waves of atmospheric pressure travelling east-to-west and vice-versa around the equator.
  • It is the first time that these waves have been observed, but the theory behind them has been refined over the past two centuries.
  • This opens up a new avenue of research that will lead to a better understanding of how this atmospheric ringing happens.
