Short summary
Explosions in the atmosphere produce infrasound, recorded as very small pressure fluctuations. The relatively new infrasound technology also provides information on atmospheric dynamics. Within the ARISE2 project we have analysed the tidal variability using the data of the global IMS infrasound network. Our findings are compared with reanalysis data. We claim our methodology to be applicable for geographical and temporal studies of dynamic features and propose future applications.
