"There is a version that the Bermuda Triangle is a consequence of gas hydrates reactions. They start to actively decompose with methane ice turning into gas. It happens in an avalanche-like way, like a nuclear reaction, producing huge amounts of gas. That makes ocean to heat up and ships sink in its waters mixed with a huge proportion of gas. The same leads to the air to get supersaturated with methane, which makes the atmosphere extremely turbulent and lead to aircraft crashes."
Essentially, the theory is underground pockets of methane gas explosions destabilized the surface and caused sediment to give way; much in the same was as sinkholes in Florida and other regions are formed.
Scientists believe this same process of trapped gas mixing with water -- preventing buoyancy -- causes ships in the Bermuda Triangle to sink. As far as planes are concerned, the updraft of air from the release of these hydrates causes aircraft to hit violent turbulence and instrumentation to fail. The result is a crash into the ocean depths.

Um.m.m.m....I don't knnow if I buy this explanation. It seems rushed and piecemeal, at best. Maybe this explanation is legit but I'm just not sure. What does ATS have to say?
