Low-frequency microseismic oscillations serve as an important source of information about processes proceeding in the crust, in spite of the fact that the main energy of these oscillations is caused by processes proceeding in the atmosphere and ocean, such as variations in the atmospheric pressure and the action of oceanic waves on the coast and shelf.
