ELF Waves [Astro*Index]

Extremely Low Frequency Radiation. (about 3-3000 Hz)

This is the frequency of the electromagnetic fields of living organisms. Certain natural phenomena, such as thunderstorms, are sources of this radiation as well. Stellar bodies, such as the Sun, do not appear to give off radiation of this frequency, but may cause terrestrial phenomena, which in turn generate ELF waves. Research in this area could lead to direct evidence of solar and celestial influence.
