According to Wikipedia, “Khalilov’s work and scientific activities have been widely covered in international news magazines and encyclopedias, including the website of NATO International Program of which E. Khalilov, along with representatives of Turkey and Kazakhstan, is a co-director.” Khalilov is the Chairman of the International Committee on Global Geological and Environment Change
The sounds began appearing on YouTube in the latter half of 2011, usually recorded near the opening of a cave or sinkhole. There are a variety of sounds now documented on YouTube and a wider variety of theories as to a possible origin.

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) near Gakona, Alaska is prime among the usual suspects trotted out for possible identification in a line-up of conspiracy theories. However it is hard to understand a mechanism by which HAARP would generate the various low frequency rumblings now being documented on YouTube.
Adding to the confusion is the distinct possibility of ‘copycat’ fabrications posted on YouTube in an attempt to gain hits. Researcher Daniel Drasin has identified a number of YouTube postings with identical ambient background noise with different locations shown, suggesting doctoring of the video soundtrack by armchair spoofers. Given the relative ease of fabrication of unusual sounds and the propensity of YouTube posters to fabricate videos, it is more than likely that some of the ‘evidence’ is bogus.
However that does not explain the original postings or the wide range of physical locations where they are being reported, so something unusual is going on.
In an article reprising an interview conducted by the WOSCO International News Agency posted at the GeoChange Journal, Dr. Khalilov says that, in his opinion, the likely source of the bizarre sounds is “very large-scale energy processes.”
We have analyzed records of these sounds and found that most of their spectrum lies within the infrasound range, i.e. is not audible to humans. What people hear is only a small fraction of the actual power of these sounds. They are low-frequency acoustic emissions in the range between 20 and 100 Hz modulated by ultra-low infrasonic waves from 0.1 to 15 Hz. In geophysics, they are called acoustic-gravity waves; they are formed in the upper atmosphere, at the atmosphere-ionosphere boundary in particular. There can be quite a lot of causes why those waves are generated: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, storms, tsunamis, etc. However, the scale of the observed humming sound in terms of both the area covered and its power far exceeds those that can be generated by the above-mentioned phenomena.

The energy required to generate the sounds reported is beyond conventional sources, Khalilov notes, leading him to conclude that the culprit may be our sun. It’s well known that solar activity runs in an 11 year cycle and is currently ramping up towards another peak. The Solar Maximum as it is known, has the potential to disrupt our highly technical communications network and has been a matter of concern for some time.
What is not clear about Khalilov’s theory is if the acoustic-gravity waves can produce infrasound both of a high enough frequency to be in the audible range and of enough amplitude to be audible in the manner reported on YouTube.
The first time earth took a direct hit from a Coronal Mass Ejection that affected our communications infrastructure was in 1859, when the electric charged induced in telegraph lines from magnetic fields reaching the earth’s surface raced through the lines and burnt out telegraph equipment. In 2006 a similar event disabled a number of communications and navigation satellites.
It should be pointed out that solar activity began to rise sharply since early 2011, with its amplitude significantly higher than all forecasts given by a number of influential scientific institutions in 2010 and 2011. Meanwhile, the observed increase in solar activity is fully consistent with the forecast of the International Committee GEOCHANGE published in the Committee’s Report in June 2010. If this growth rate of solar activity continues, its amplitude by the end of 2012 will be higher than the amplitude of 23rd solar cycle, and in 2013-2014 the solar activity will reach its peak the amplitude of which was predicted by us to be 1.5 – 1.7 times higher than the amplitude of the 23rd cycle.

As is usually the case with such unusual phenomena, the matter is being largely ignored by the mainstream media, leaving speculation and analysis to social networks, blogs and email groups. It is another case of real-world phenomena that falls outside the ‘box of context’ of mainstream media consensus reality going unreported.
If Khalilov is correct, the ominous sounds may be a harbinger of events to come consistent with various legends of 2012 from the Maya and other indigenous peoples. Khalilov goes on to connect the influx of solar energy with geophysical changes.
There is one more possible cause of these sounds and it may lie at the Earth’s core. The fact is that the acceleration of the drift of the Earth’s north magnetic pole which increased more than fivefold between 1998 and 2003 and is at the same level today points to intensification of energy processes in the Earth’s core, since it is processes in the inner and outer core that form the Earth’s geomagnetic field. Meanwhile, as we have already reported, on November 15, 2011 all ATROPATENA geophysical stations which record three-dimensional variations of the Earth’s gravitational field almost simultaneously registered a powerful gravitational impulse. The stations are deployed in Istanbul, Kiev, Baku, Islamabad and Yogyakarta, with the first and last one being separated by a distance of about 10,000 km. Such a phenomenon is only possible if the source of this emanation is at the Earth’s core level. That huge energy release from the Earth’s core at the end of the last year was some kind of a start signal indicating the transition of the Earth’s internal energy into a new active phase.
Intensification of the energy processes in the Earth’s core can modulate the geomagnetic field which, through a chain of physical processes at the ionosphere – atmosphere boundary level, generates acoustic-gravity waves the audible range of which has been heard by people in the form of a frightening low-frequency sound in different parts of our planet.
— Dr. Prof. Elchin Khalilov
One conjecture is that the influx of electromagnetic energy from the sun may be the cause of the increase in energy release from the earth’s core. Unaccountable sounds may not be the only effect of increased energy arriving at the planet. Khalilov saves the best (or worst) of his thoughts for last:
In both cases, even though the causes of acoustic-gravity waves are of a quite understandable geophysical nature, they are indicative of the expected significant increase in solar activity and the geodynamic activity of our planet. There is no doubt that processes in the core rule the internal energy of our planet, therefore, we should expect by the end of 2012 a sharp rise in strong earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and extreme weather events with peak levels in 2013 – 2014.

Here is more from Dr. Khalilov from his own blog:
“The anxiety of people all over the world is quite understandable for humanity entered 2012 on the wave of the unusually high level of manifestation of natural cataclysms of both geological and climatic character, as well as global political and economic instability. These factors do make people uncomfortable and if there is no deep scientific analysis, they lead to confusion and depression accompanied by the conviction that the “End Time” is approaching.
