I was checking my air filter after some spirited splashy action and "discovered" these tubes coming off of the air intake. The one outlined in green has a tank like thingy at the bottom. What are they and what do they do?

I've seen those also. My guess would be a catch for water that would allow for evaporation.

I figured they were either a noise reduction or something to do with a water catch of some sort...

My understanding is that those are acoustic chambers that quiet the noise coming out of your intake. They counteract certain resonances.
Ding, ding, ding. Winner, winner, chicken dinner....

Bingo! We have a winner....


That is my understanding also. Here's a good photo of them stolen from ...ahem...another forum:
