    Do you mean the actual above the soil surface constructions?

    You might get some accurate scientific study info from a web search of the 'magnetic' termite mounds found in the Northern Territory in Australia. These mounds have been the subject of a number of proper research studies. The constructions are designed to regulate the temperature inside the mounds.
