strange sound near battery?

Anyone know what the sound is that comes from near the battery in the back after a longer drive? It only last for a few seconds or minutes, but sounds like something
is "whirrrrrring". Can't really describe it.
I'm assuming its the battery doing something.

Some of the electronic equipment under the trunk floor is cooled by a fan, I believe.

Ah, that would make sense. Seemed to notice it on hot days too.
