The image from the first link looks promising. The images on the second link don't mean much. They have been enlarged so much they could be
This worries me -
The team is currently seeking funding to mount an expedition to confirm and explore what appears to be a vast underwater city...
...The project team asks that for more information, or to find out how to help fund their research, please contact the Herald de Paris’ publisher,
Jes Alexander, at a specially set-up telephone number: 415-738-7811.
No information on the team. No credentials. Sounds a little fishy. Who would even call without knowing who these people are?
Particullarly in light of the images at the second link. Those were not enhanced by anyone I would trust. Looks like a kid who just got Photoshop for
Christmas did the work.
Satellite imaging can do far higher resolution than that in the first place. Why would somebody who knows what they are doing use such low resolution
photo's when far better ones are available? Just seems odd to me.
Guarding the location’s coordinates carefully, the project’s leader, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, says the city could be

Could the source be duped by some phony researchers? What kind of news source would even publish asking for money for an anonymous source? A fake one
Anybody know if this publication is for real?
I'm sorry, but I'm calling hoax here and perhaps a confidence game. No real researcher would do this and certainly would not use Google quality
images and they would know how to use image manipulation software.

resolve a childs bicycle clearly. You should see the ones the Planners offices use.
