A telluric current (from Latin tellūs, "earth"), or Earth current,<ref>In Chisholm, H. (1910). "Earth current". The Encyclopædia britannica: A dictionary of arts, sciences, literature and general information. New York: The Encyclopædia Britannica Company. Page 813-816.</ref> is an electric current which moves underground or through the sea. Telluric currents result from both natural causes and human activity, and the discrete currents interact in a complex pattern. The currents are extremely low frequency and travel over large areas at or near the surface of Earth.
