As this radio broadcast reports, it comes from the largest oceans during winter, apparently the result of powerful winter storms. The hum comes from the surface of the Earth rising and falling less than a millionth of a meter, vibrating once per 300 seconds. The clip is 3 minutes ... Full description.
