Exciting answer? The collective despair of dolphins and whales was orchestrated into a series of plaintive cries for respect. If we could
translate the 'bloop' it would probably be saying, "For the love of God, pleeeease turn the noise down, stop killing our environment and ease up on
the dumping your crap in our home!! Give us a fricking break!"
Standard answer: It was probably an outcome of unusual tectonic activity. The sound has been described...
Old CNN news article
"The sound waves are almost like voice prints. You're able to look at the characteristics of the sound and say: 'There's a blue whale,
there's a fin whale, there's a boat, there's a humpback whale and here comes and earchquake," he says. But some sounds remain a mystery he says.
Like Bloop -- monster of the deep?
Key words are 'almost like voice prints.' Not actual voice prints. It's accepted that no known sea critter could make a sound of that magnitude.
Wasn't a whale and couldn't be a colossal squid. That pretty much leaves an unknown geological cause...and leaves us no closer to actually
identifying it. As far as we know, it hasn't been heard since that summer.
You can listen to the original recording (not speeded or slowed) and other unexplained sounds in this link...
