Do sound waves from volcanic eruptions travel around the world? I recently read about the Krakatoa eruption and how sound waves from that eruption traveled around the globe 4 times and were detected by weather stations through pressure spikes in barometers (The Sound So Loud That It Circled the Earth Four Times). What I'm curious about is whether this has ever been documented in other volcanic eruptions?
Yes, if you include low frequency pressure changes as would be recorded on a barometer as sound waves.
According to the Global Volcanism Program:
The sonic boom from this wave was heard at great distances, including in Fiji (about 500 km NW), within about two hours in New Zealand (1,600-2,000 km), and within about nine hours in Alaska, USA (9,370 km NE). The pressure wave was also recorded by infrasound and weather instruments worldwide as it circled the Earth, with instruments picking up the wave a second time as it arrived from the opposite direction.
In a tweet sent by Michael Bunds you can see in the pressure each time the shock wave passed the weather station in Utah:
