I call it crunching....it sounds like rice krispy cereal sort of. It is referred to as detritus also. From what I understand, it is related to arthritis in that as the bones in the joints rub from loss of cartilage, it creates microscopic pieces of bone that float in the joint and "grind" against the bone as you rotate or use the joint making the noise. Mine is really noticeable in my shoulders and knees. Someone else may be able to explain it more technically, but that is my understanding of it.
