Interesting artikel.

Although im always wary when scientists presume too much. Not only water
slows waves down "a little". Maybe some other liquid is present, there are lots of possibilites, maybe even those which we cannot contemplate, who knows what unusual laws rule this lower realms.

Liquid coke maybe


Quotes:-
"---records of waves generated by earthquakes traveling through the Earth—collected from instruments scattered around the planet.

“Water slows the speed of waves a little,” Wysession explained. “Lots of damping and a little slowing match the predictions for water very well.”

Interesting read, but hardly surprising. Here in Texas, where we have only one natural lake, our largest single source of fresh water is the Edwards Aquifer, an enormous natural cistern. Even though what they’re describing in Asia seems to be something quite different, anyone who’s read the Bible knows that there are ‘fountains of the deep’.

this is still the largest amount of underground detectable water weve discovered thus far though....right?

This is not a 'fountain of the deep', it is not an artesian water supply, it is not an aquifer. It is minerals that are chemically ordered such that they have hydroxyl groups and the like in their structure.

I am not completely clear on the minerals in these strata, but consider Olivine, with its chemical forumula of (Mg, Fe)2SiO4, and its hydrothermic alteration product, Serpentine, (Mg,Fe)3Si2O5(OH)4 .

Olive in hand sample"


Serpentine in hand sample"


THey're not 'physically wet', you can't squeeze water out of them or drill into a formation of serpentine to get water out of it.

And, to be clear, they are not saying that there is a large formation of serpentine that is this 'ocean sized' anomaly, they are saying that much of it isn't pore water, but rather similar chemical alteration products.

great research....but doesnt serpentine release its water when its processed into lizardite (orthoantigorite) maybe we can figure out a way to extract the water after we bring up some rocks from this new discovery

It is true. However, here we call 'em "Crab People"... cause they look like... you know...Crabs.


This is an interesting find. The title is a tad misleading, but that was the title of the article, so meh. I wonder if this water is potable, heavy, or what. Surely there's a use for it. If I were China, I'd looking for ways to extract the mineral content from it, and use the rest to water the populace, crops, or whatnots.

That is, if they can fight off all the crab people.

I think I ready another article like this today. I find it interesting but I wonder if it is really true or not.

If the liquid is being held within the molecules of the subterranean rock beneath the oceans floor, and with intense heating it will evaporate, then do you suppose with all of the volcanic and tectonic plate movement it is then possible for these areas, to begin releasing more saturation into the mix of melt off? Could spell disaster for the affected areas.
