Bermuda triangle is a mysterious area on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a strange triangular region connects the lands of Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. Several ships and aircrafts have been disappearing without a trace. It is one of the greatest unsolved mystery till date. The Bermuda triangle covers 4,40,000 miles of sea. Its effects can be experienced even outside of the triangle too. Bermuda Triangle and its stories became a rage in the 1970s. Many pilots and sea-navigators came forward to share the tales of disasters. Many such Bermuda Triangle stories were found to be fake, but here are the solid proofs.
The release of Methane gas:
It is known that large amounts of Methane gas are trapped thousands of feet below the seafloor. If this gas gets released, water density will reduce significantly and the frothy water can no longer provide the buoyancy required to keep a ship afloat. Through many research, cleared that methane hydrates exist hundreds of meters under the ocean floor in a frozen state at zero temperature. As the hydrates decompose, they start releasing a large amount of methane gas, it reduces the density of water.
Methane gas bubbles formed on the sea floor gradually rise to the surface. When a ship passes over it, the bubble bursts. And the hollowness inside the bubble completely engulfs the ship taking it down to the bottom. Even the burnable gas could blast the aircraft into pieces. Whenever a plane or ship disappeared into the triangle the ruin cannot be found, it is to be believed that the Gulf stream runs near the triangle easily destroys the ruins. At least 1000 lives are lost within the span of 100 years.
The hexagonal clouds:
The clouds causing terrifying 170 mph winds air bumps. These winds are enough powerful to generate waves more than 45ft high as “air bombs” are forced to come crashing towards the ocean. While looking at satellite images of coastal clouds above the North Atlantic Ocean, the meteorologists reportedly noted strange patterns of hexagonal gaps as large as 88 kilometers (55 miles) in the cloud formations. The fogs then keep moving along with the ship or the plane. And soon, all the electronic systems and the instruments start malfunctioning. Nothing works correctly any longer. Spatial disorientation and time distortion starts. And finally, the ship or the aircraft can even disintegrate or disappear without a trace.
The Marine plants:
The Sargasso Sea is a strange and a unique creation of nature. The sea area which is 700 miles wide, 2000 miles long and located in the north Atlantic. Another strange phenomenon which is nowhere seen in the world, this vast water area is covered with some dense marine plants which form a thick mat on the surface. This free-floating golden-brown marine plant is known as Sargassum. Although the Sargasso Sea remains calm with its surrounding currents, a subtropical circle is formed here. As a result, the entire sea area with its mat like weeds slowly rotates clockwise. The rotation also depends on the surrounding weather conditions.
The compass variation:
The absolute geographic North and the magnetic North is known as the compass variation. And at any point in time, this gap depends on one’s physical position on earth. A compass always points to the magnetic North, while the absolute geographic North which is known as the North Pole is located in Greenland. And these two are not the same location. So, the compass variation leads to the ruin.
The area is subject to violent and unexpected storms and weather changes. These short but intense storms can build up and disappear quickly. It is a primary cause for the navigational problems. The violent storms in Bermuda triangle starts as small storms but later it raised quickly even a satellite can’t detect them properly. Hurricanes are extremely powerful swirling storms appears in the Atlantic equator. The month of June to November is the time of the possibility of such Hurricane origin.
The underwater Topography of the area may also be a factor. It goes from a gently sloping continental shelf to an extremely deep-decrease. Some of the deepest trenches in the world are found in the area of the Bermuda Triangle. This mysterious triangle is home to the lost city of Atlantis. According to legend and speculation, the city depends upon the power of special energy crystals that were extremely powerful. These energy crystals are in an altered state and sends out rays of energy that confuses the navigation. It is located under which the city of Atlantis is drenched in the ocean. It may the power and charge of Atlantis answerable for all the disappearances.
