"In this case, what users are seeing is an artifact of the data collection process. Bathymetric (or sea-floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea-floor...The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data. The fact that there are blank spots between each of these lines is a sign of how little we really know about the world's oceans."

if i remember correctly atlantis was destroyed by an earthquake [if it ever existed] and 3 1/2 miles down is a long way , i dont think global warming raised the sea levels QUITE that much . there are some better structures off the coast of japan and off of bermuda. still it is an interesting find and hopefully more than a geographic anomally
