A recent expedition used high-class submarines to study the Great Blue Hole, the enormous and especially stunning sea pothole found in Belize. Among the many exciting discoveries that came out of diving, one of them was the discovery of "tracks" found at the bottom of the hole.
Although we are in a hurry to add this not a Godzilla testimony for a holiday or something suspicious, the discovery is still an intriguing representation of the history of the great sea pothle.
In December 2018, a team of scientists and researchers took part in a poll of the Great Blue Hole. Among the crew members were a bunch of scientists and researchers, including billionaire Richard Branson and Fabien Cousteau, the grandson of the French explorer Jacques Cousteau, who for the first time brought glory to the Blue Hole in the early 1
Erika Bergman, the main pilot of the submarine on the project and oceanographer, reported that they were watching tracks at the bottom of the deflection that they could not detect and remain "open to interpretation."
The Great Blue Hole is the second largest sea-face in the world, followed by Dragon Wire in the South China Sea, whose diameter exceeds 300 meters (984 feet) and depths of 125 meters. It can be found on the Beacon Reef, a small atoll, located more than 70 kilometers from the mainland of Belize. – Isolating multidirectional sonar and g Observe environmental data on their water.
It is highly unlikely that the tracks were caused by any living creature in the last time, because the bed in the well is devoid of oxygen. The level of dissolved oxygen drops to zero below the layer of hydrogen sulfide, which is about 90 meters (~ 300 feet) deep in the hole. He effectively creates a cloak in the hole, avoiding any circulation of the water of the past. As a result of these unsuitable conditions, the seabed was sunken by dead sea creatures, which went too deep, only to hush up and perish.
say, tracks are relics of the geological process. Great Blue Hole actually began life some as a cave. About 14,000 years ago, at the end of the last glacial period, the world began to melt, and the sea level rose sharply. Ultimately, the ceiling of the cave fell and flooded with water as we see it today.
The inside of the hole is still baked in stalagmites, stalactites and other geological features that you expect to see inside the cave. Nevertheless, the millennia of water allowed them to become encrusted in marine growth.
"It's neat that there are places on our planet – and most of them in the oceans – just as they were thousands of years ago and will remain as they are thousands of years in the future," Bergman added, referring to CNN.
