Dr Chris Barnes  57 Publications on LFN ( Low Frequency Noise ) and the Hum ( the Hum is an enigmatic acoustic phenomenon present in Britain since the 1970’s and in the USA since the 1990’s).   The Hum is now almost a World-wide phenomenon which due to its growth suggests it is anthropogenic/infrastructure related.  

When the latest Geographic distribution of prominent World Hums is considered it most closely correlates with the use of renewable energy systems, particularly wind turbines and hydro-plants   with Francis Turbines and PME Earthing  systems.  Read his recent papers to find out exactly why. Wind turbine infrasound is a strong modern contender for the excitation of secondary LFN effects both in houses and throughout the electricity industry.   More significantly some wind turbines as with hydropower supply long distance narrowband seismic vibrations even when the blades are not turning. Phase imbalanced electrical systems also contribute to the Hum.    In some cases, the Hum is far more than just a noise and to fully account for all hearer's perception of this enigmatic phenomenon complex biological, geophysical, quantum electromagnetic and even space physics processes may need to be invoked.     

 It is estimated that somewhere between 2-11% of the World's population hear/perceive the Hum.    Latest papers also establish an exciting link between Hum and climate/weather forecasting.

Academic collaborators welcomed.   I am also available as a 'Hum' investigator and expert witness.
