Mystery of Earth’s ‘hum’ heard by millions, said solved by researchers

 Hum Noise TEP
April 2015EARTH MYSTERY It is the unexplained buzzing noise that has fed suspicions of an alien invasion or UFO activity in the skies. But the mystery of a bizarre drone that has plagued millions of people around the world could finally be solved, scientists believe. ‘The Hum’ – as it is known – can be heard by some more than others and has been blamed for pushing people to the brink of madness with sleepless nights and a constant ringing in the ears. Some thought it was the fault of gas pipes or power lines, but experts now believe the elusive buzzing is down to “ocean waves.” Researchers say currents in the sea cause the Earth to vibrate subtly as they shift across its surface, creating “microseismic” activity that elicits a “ring.”
The findings mean conspiracy theorists who had blamed submarines or even mating fish were at least looking in the right direction in their search for an answer to the intriguing low-level noise. According to scientists Fabrice Ardhuin, Lucia Gualtieri and Eleonore Stutzmann, who co-authored the study, “the hum is the least understood part of Earth’s oscillations.” The trio of French academics published their findings in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. “I think our result is an important step in the transformation of mysterious noise into an understood signal,” Mr Ardhuin said. The strange noise, which only affects one in 50 people – or two per cent of the world’s population – was first reported in the 1970s.

Hum

The “humming noise” has gained credence as more people have reported hearing it. Science researchers say currents in the sea cause the Earth to vibrate subtly.
Just this week, residents in Plymouth, Devon, complained of a “melodic, droning” sound. One resident told the Plymouth Herald: “You wake up and thought it was something in the house. You can’t say it’s loud, but it’s a nuisance. “We don’t hear it in the daytime, only at night.” Despite extensive research, scientists had until now failed to come up with a conclusive answer to what caused the hum, with the most commonly cited explanations being farm or factory machinery. –UK Mirror

    Sorry I think thats a load of kodswallop. The ocean indeed pppffffttt. Its hard to say what it is, but I THINK it would be more likely the slow collapse of the inner core, with scrapings and shrill noises that some hear and others dont, depending upon the pitch, decibel etc. This inner core is changing the north pole stability and causing the very ground to collapse beneath our feet as in sink holes (world wide). In all countries this sound has been reported, but not all people hear it. But ocean, get real.

    • Hi, Folks. Sorry but I am convinced that ‘The Hum’ is mostly from distant industrial sources, plus local ones, and sometimes ‘overlapping’. …..it is very complicated : I think there are many different sources, but regarding the theory above, I would like to see the evidence for it .
      There was another article (someone just sent it to me in the post )(20 April 2015.), claiming that it was from the ‘oscillating’ of the earth…..sorry, but I don’t buy that, without clear evidence and data to show what was measured.
      Stick with it, folks, but please be wary of exotic theories !
      Thank you.
      Best Wishes,

        Oh don’t get me started on fracking!! We here near where I live in Louisiana are having a real battle in the courts to keep fracking out of our area. I just hope and pray that we are successful against those companies. I can look and terrible increase of earthquakes in Oklahoma since they started fracking there, and see what we would be in store for. Only explanation is the fracking. And we have good water here. With the water table so high here, I dread what could happen to our water.

      • Sources ? How long have you got ?! That is what makes the ‘Hum ‘ problem so complicated. Power stations? Sub-stations ? (one in Southampton makes a terrific ‘din’, JUST the kind of low hum (and loud!) that can travel miles); trains : we have them go by here in the night, their low diesel hum lasts for minutes, so must affect a certain area : multiply that by hundreds of trains trundling around the country….? Motorways, said to have a dominating frequency of about 60Hz : could be adding to it…..Motorway maintenance? I have heard low hums from machines in the night…… large lorries droning at a fairly constant speed at night along M-ways, I have seen ‘convoys’ all trundling along : their noise could travel out and mix with others……ships’ engines: apparently they leave them running while in port……I have heard what could have been that near Southampton liner berths…..BUT ! nearby is a container handling depot, with thousands of containers being shifted around most of the time : low frequency engines again….. Crop dryers….I have heard one close by at a farm : what a noise ! I know all these are not all the time, but their noise could ‘float around for miles and add to others…. Then , as if all that were not baffling enough , you have the added problem (as with me years ago), of extra sensitivity of hearing, via medical conditions or medications…….
        O.K., enough !

        I read an article on this about 4 years ago that suggest us “hearers” are the ones who have finally entered our final phase of existence on this planet. The higher sources are trying to get our attention, and we need to figure out a way to let them know we are receiving their message. This way, we can go on to the next life.

    No apologies necessary – I sincerely disbelieve them. There are still several unanswered mysteries going on about this noise…and it could even be a mixture of some of them. Why, when you are on a boat that has no motors, the ocean envelopes one in some heavy quiet deep – not a buzzing noise. Why hasn’t any ancient or sage, spiritual, meditative, or contemplative master ever not spoken of this? Perhaps there was no ocean? They would certainly been aware of this buzz. “Since the 1970’s people have been complaining of this noise.” Isn’t that about the time the space program really began shooting satellites and stuff into space? Maybe because the organic harmony of earth/space/and humans is totally disrupted through electronics, in space, in our houses, in our ears, and in our pockets all the time – is this noise happening. Maybe the era of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll and absence of people at church acknowledging an Almighty God has been so massive it has brought our beings into a sort of a rottenness that now pervades the country and this is the only way we acknowledge ITS reality is by God sending the buzz to wake us up. Isaiah or Jeremiah (read the whole books for yourself – it might take away the buzz for a while) speaks of a noise when God had made judgement on the land….So no, I disbelieve this answer entirely.

    I am one of the 1 in 50. I live near the Gulf of Mexico but never thought it would have been water related. The sound I hear is like a low warbling hum, like that of a ceiling fan motor than is oscillating at different speeds but all along the same frequency, It is very annoying and at times quite maddening. I have slept with my shooting ear muffs on many nights. Although, I am not leaning toward the Ocean explanation. It is interesting.

    This is interesting, but I also feel that there are ‘hums’ which emanate from the atmosphere too. There must be an eclectic mix of sources – it can’t just be of one origin.
    There have been a couple of occasions where a ‘hum’ became so bad here (lower Australia) that it sounded like an off-channel radio getting louder and louder (with a palpable vibration) until it stopped suddenly, leaving us a little dizzy.
    I also believe that a hum can come from the earth’s crust shifting and maybe the outside possibility of volcanic and magma pool shifts…..?

    • Thanks Lulu

      Crust sounds like a more logical culprit. That would at least explain the low resonance hum – crystalline slabs grinding across each other. Could be happening where the planet’s under crust is seriously abrading. If it was the oceans, we could expect to hear variations in pitch when the moon’s gravitation pull on Earth’s oceans was the strongest (high tide) However; no one has reported any significant modulations in the auditory tone – which makes this less likely it is the source of the sound.

    I’m more inclined to think the smart grid (smart meters, cell towers, satellite/direct TV/net, etc.) ALL culminate into the “tinnitus” of the ages. However, if this is true cause it is in violation of the rules and regulations of the EPA which will most likely never be addressed, admitted or discontinued as there are too many powerful interests in opposition to shutting down said smart grid.

    There is NO increase in the Shumann resonance. Please do not say this, as it only muddies the waters of truth and there is no basis for it. That is a “new age” falacy.

    I would like to share a personal experience with everyone. It was several years back when I started doing research online after work about The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) it is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, In a nut shell it is low frequency waves sent into the ionosphere and the uses are endless. This program is controversial and I will leave you to make your own opinion. Now what I would like to share is when I was digging through the web for information on HAARP I found a video that was showing the HAARP program in action. The noise it presented in the video was very captivating it draws you in (Figuratively speaking) and as a Advanced image and IT specialist I can say it was not a fake. There are many videos that claim to be HAARP running in action from all parts of the world due to the fact that they are all over one or more on every continent. Feel free to find the information yourself its out there and the facts are solid and now I will get to my point. that night after watching the video for a few moments I began to hear a hum then a ringing in my ear just like the one explained on this site and many other publications.

    I am not sure how long minuets maybe but after watching I was just coming back my eyes were fuzzy so was my head. My mother and paramedics aka EMT were around me at my kitchen table with my father also. I stood up and said “I was doing something on the computer why are you all here”.
    The EMT explained that I took a seizure and needed to go to the hospital. After 4 days with all the tests EKG, EEG, MRI all the standards for seizure victims the Doctors could not explain why this happened. I was not diagnosed with epilepsy or any of seizure disorder and was discharged with only the Dr telling me I should be happy I don’t have a disorder I am healthy as a horse at 28 years old. Its been a few years now and never did I have another episode or experience that created a seizure nor have I had any health issues. I would like to add before I conclude that I never watched another video of The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) since and don’t plan on it. Now to conclude in the comment section right before I blacked out a man posted on the thread stating “Do not watch this video the sound that HAARP gives out is dangerous and could cause trauma to the brain and has been known to cause seizures. That was the last thing I remember before I blacked out and who knows what the cause was…. Was it the sound from HAARP? Was it my brain overheating like a computer from to much input? Was it my body telling me something is wrong? All I know is the Doctors could not understand why this happened and still til this day all these years later I am searching for the answer hoping to someday find it. “Thank you for your time and God Bless Us All”
