Couldn't find any recent threads about this subject here at ATS, so here it goes:


The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it "rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km." Though it matches the audio profile of a living creature, there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal it would have to be huge — much larger than even a Blue Whale, according to scientists who have studied the phenomenon.

Could this be an unknown, giant seacreature saying 'hello!'?

And by the way: If this topic has been posted before; Just shoot me, again...

Really cool find. I wouldn't be suprised if the sound was created by an "as of yet unknown biological source," the fancy way of saying a new creature. Keep us posted for further developments.

Could be a Megalodon,

I heard there was a mechanical sound which could be heard and others are sayin biological. Are these two different sources or do people just not know what is going on?

Thx to share, this is quite disturbing indeed, what can make a sound like that!? interesting

For it to be biological, it would have to be "much larger than a blue whale," the largest known animal to ever exist. Even the largest known sauropods topped out around 180,000 pounds, while the largest recorded blue whale was a female weighing in at almost 390,000 pounds.

Keep in mind though, that it doesn't *have* to be massive. It could be a large-ish animal, with a previously unknown vocal mechanism which provides natural amplification.

The Blue Whale is the biggest animal to have been on this planet ever.... as far as we know.
If land dino's could grow so big, despite being extremely heavy and having to fight gravity, perhaps a species of them moved into the sea and because of the extra buoyancy of water grew even bigger, but stayed near the floor of the sea.

Bloop is one of the most interesting phenomena in the sea. It is literally unknown what it was or even what it could be.

If someone is a bit confused about the 'mechanical' and 'biological' sound;
You have to listen to this soundsample to get a impression of how the original sounded like. I Recomend you plug in your headphones, turn up the volume and close your eyes.
To me it definatly sounded biological.

And by the way: It takes some time before you hear the 'monster', so you have be a little patient.

I thought that it sounded like an orchestra tuning up to start playing. I listened to all the recordings I am refering to the last one, The real time one with noise reduction applied. It defenatly sounds like an orchestra tuning up their instruments to start playing.

No insight as to what it could be if it was biological but this is interesting none the less.

Maybe an over-sized whale? Who knows, so many possibilities.

Could it be an infrasonic blast used by a massive seabeast or Zeugledon to stun its prey. Just imagine the force that that would exert an the brain of a fish. The wave of sound/water force would crush or stun an animal.

I am wondering if an underwater creature with a normally developed vocalchord (Or whatever) can make such sounds, that shift that much in frequency? And if the frequency's used are on the same level that normal sea creatures use to communicate with..

Here's a link to a page from the NOAA site which gives examples and descriptions of six unidentified sounds, including the 'Bloop', recorded beneath the waves -

NOAA

Some quotes from a CNN article -



In 1997, Bloop was detected by U.S. Navy "spy" sensors 3,000 miles apart that had been put there to detect the movement of Soviet submarines, the magazine reports.

The frequency of the sound meant it had to be much louder than any recognised animal noise, including that produced by the largest whales.

...

The listening stations lie hundreds of yards below the ocean surface, at a depth where sound waves become trapped in a layer of water known as the "deep sound channel".

...

Scientist Christopher Fox of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Acoustic Monitoring Project at Portland, Oregon, has given the signals names such as Train, Whistle, Slowdown, Upsweep and even Gregorian Chant.

He told New Scientist that most can be explained by ocean currents, volcanic activity -- Upsweep was tracked to an undersea South Pacific mountain that had not been identified as "live."

if it were on the east coast i could explain it really easily the only solution is that there are some really cool beasties down on the bottom that arent known about possibly still remaining dinosaur or even possibly a dragon.....

I just read a book calledThe Swarm.Its fiction but presents an interesting scenario. The premise is that a bizzare sentient amoeba creature that stores memory in its DNA is the cause of the Bloop, Shreech and others.

The Kracken! Finally! There's the final peice of evidence! I knew it! I knew it existed! Yes!

Ok, maybe not. But hey, a guy can dream right?

The Bloop is something I've studied for a bit. what is interesting is:

The site of the Bloop is remarkably close to the site of the city of R'lyeh from H. P. Lovecraft's short story "The Call of Cthulhu", where an ancient undersea monster (Cthulhu) lies sleeping. Lovecraft said that R'lyeh is located at 47°9′S, 123°43′W in the southern Pacific Ocean, with the bloop also being targeted somewhere in that range

Cthulhu is a member of an alien race that are worshipped as Gods which appear in HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.
The coordinates of Bloop are the same as a City built by an alien race which worshipped Cthulhu and built a city there.
