are you kidding me?
the anti sub stuff they have on the seafloor can prolly hear a duck fart after it ate a french frie

You are thinking of our SOSUS network which is microphones, this is referring to a seismic event.

Though, it brings up a valid question, why haven't we heard anything from SOSUS?

mikes don't pick up siesmo?
no wonder i have to take out every frequency under 20 hertz when im doing live sound
those mikes on a computer will pick up everything

my point is they have sensors of one type or another
siesmic events create water waves thats what tsunamies are
water waves can be picked up by seismos and have to be filtered out to be analyzed

they can pick up a tuning propeller at tens of miles and there are sensor nets on the bottom and buoys everywhere
the grid is tighter then a ducks butt

Marine geologist Dave Long from the British Geological Survey told the BBC that the energy released by a plane hitting the ocean would be rapidly dissipated in the water.

He said any device picking up such small movements would have to be very sensitive and incredibly close to the impact, meaning that search teams would now know exactly where to look for the debris.

So he's dismissing whatever the 550 ton plane's cargo might be comprised of (explosives, for example)

as well as the chance plane could have landed in shallow atoll/nylon pool waters in the middle of the se

Stellar scientist!

Then theres also the issue of what external stimulus can trigger a disturbance in that region right in the path of where the plane disappeared - its easier to assume there was none..but what sort of energy can create a small seismic disturbance?

^ oh look, the east harlem building methane explosion that killed 2 ppl, registered =/

Its NOT far fetched. Checking on Google, A 777 weighs about 390 tons. Imagine the kinetic energy of 390 tons falling into the sea from 35000 feet, possibly under power, and that's a LOT of energy. Even hitting the water would create a considerable downward shock wave that might register as a small seismic event as the shock wave slammed into the sea bottom. Sort of like when a loud clap of thunder is able to rattle dishes and windows in a house. Nothing is physically hitting the house just a shock wave of energy. It would be interesting to go back and look into seismic logs at the time of known sea crashes to see if similar disturbances were recorded.

85 minutes to travel 115 kms! This was a 777 not a Honda Civic. It would have to have been zig zagging all the way there. It might have been a meteorite impact that corroborates the ball of fire seen from the oil platform to the east, but even that is a stretch. The Chinese may have also set up their own version of Sosus, and do not want to give to many explanations as to what they may have detected. Regardless, this whole story reeks.

Not sure if anyone brought it up yet but um... anyone ever had of an explosion?

Could be that the plane somehow exploded causing such a reading to occur.
