Typhoons are one of the most destructive meteorological disasters all over the world. However, because of the lack of in situ observations under such extreme weather conditions during the typhoon’s passage, typhoon monitoring and forecasting are still not able to meet the needs of typhoon prevention and mitigation. In recent years, a new method of typhoon monitoring based on seismological observations and techniques has emerged and developed, utilizing typhoon-generated seismic noise as a proxy. This paper reviews the recent progress in study of typhoon-induced microseisms, including the generation mechanisms, source location distribution, and its potential implications on typhoon monitoring and ocean wave parameter inversion. Future prospects on seismic monitoring of typhoons are provided and discussed. This newly emerging method may provide interdisciplinary support to traditional observation and investigation of typhoons.
