Ocean and atmosphere connections

The study of the oceans is intimately linked to understanding global warming

and related biosphere concerns.


Our planet is invested with two great oceans; one visible, the other invisible; 
one underfoot, the other overhead; one entirely envelopes it, 
the other covers about two thirds of its surface.
Matthew F. Maury (1855) The Physical Geography of the Seas and Its Meteorology

I'm left with two powerful impressions. ...

Let me quote just one brief example, from James Greene's Mandelstam:
Oh if some day—sidestepping sleep and death—

         A goad of air or summer's sting

Could pierce me into hearing

         The buzz of earth, buzz of the earth.

As with ‘Bright Earth’, I focused on etymology,

believing it to set off a deeper reverberation than we can sense in our minds.


CB: I wonder about this ‘deeper reverberation’. Aren’t you in danger of sounding ‘fruity’, as Lipnik calls it?

Then again, it also reminds me of recent theories of consciousness that use quantum physics

to understand how the human brain has some advantages over computers. Is it mysticism?


LG: All I mean is sound - not gongs or wind chimes

or Mandelstam’s ‘buzz of the earth’.

I was alluding to what you said earlier about the double life of language, and in this case wanted to make room for the less overt of the two. God, it’s so hard to talk about this without sounding ‘fruity’. You try it, Lipnik!

Earth Hum Could Predict Hurricanes, More

Tuesday, October 09, 2007


UPDATE: Thanks to blog reader Jason, I found the article.

When Discovery Magazine published the online version,

they changed the title from "The Buzz of the Earth"

to "Earth Speaks in an Inaudible Voice".



I read an interesting article in a respected Science magazine recently, and I wouldn't give it so much credence if it wasn't on paper (unfortunately I forgot which mag it was and I couldn't find the article on the Net). It was entitled "The Buzz of the Earth" and said that scientists have discovered extremely-low-frequency "sounds" (called "Infrasound" - and out of human hearing range) emanating from:


- Tsunamis

- Hurricanes

- Tornadoes (see NOAA graphic at right)


Potential Acoustic Radiation Mechanisms from Tornadoes


- Waves over Earthquake Zones

- Volcanoes

- Avalanches

- Elephants
