COVER A low-pressure system swirls off the coast of Greenland. A seismic array in Japan is now being used to detect seismic waves generated by ocean swell from a more powerful system known as a "weather bomb" in North Atlantic waters. The ability to collect precise seismic source locations of distant storms may provide a new approach for exploring Earth's interior. See pages 869 and 919.
