The atmosphere-ocean system interacts with the solid Earth to produce seismic signals called microseisms, which are observed globally. This interaction results from large-scale, slowly moving extratropical storms but also from smaller, intense weather systems such as tropical cyclones (called hurricanes in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific, and typhoons in the western Pacific).

Bob Guza has the best job in California. Guza retired in 2012, but after a month off, the professor emeritus couldn't think of anything better to do with his time, so he went back to work. “I’m a lucky guy,” says the researcher at UC San Diego’s Scripps Center for Coastal Studies. I met Guza at the Scripps Pier, where his office hovers over the beach. Guza calls his operation the beach and sand lab, and he and his team of seven study the movement of sand along the California coast. Two things are happening simultaneously along the coast, Guza explained, and it's critical that we know more about each of them. One is beach erosion, the other is sea level rise. "If we do nothing, absolutely nothing, I'd say in 50 years we're going to have very few beaches left.”

A local researcher says if something isn’t done, San Diego’s beaches could be at risk of disappearing. Scripps Institution of Oceanography UC San Diego Professor Emeritus Bob Guza says, “Sand is like gold and there is a sand shortage in Southern California.” He and his research group have been studying ocean patterns, waves and beaches. And what they’ve noticed is there is more beach erosion and rising sea levels. “Our beaches are going to become narrow, in some places there won’t be any beaches. The water will be right up to the coast highway.” Professor Guza says while we can’t stop nature there is a way to help it. “If we do nothing and by nothing we don’t put sand on beaches and we don’t unclog, rivers, I’d say in 75 years we might see a big sea level rise.”
