This is, bar none, one of the most interesting modern anomalies (along with the Wow! signal, in my opinion) and I've spent many hours pondering the origins (as I'm sure most of you have).

In actuality, the Bloop is not alone.

Bloop Wikipedia page, citations 4,5,6 reference the other signals

What really is lurking our deep, deep oceans in which we've barely explored as a species? The answers may be infinite. Deep Sea Gigantism suggests that species living at abyssal depths grow larger, delay sexual maturity, and live longer lives as a response to scarcer food resources, increased pressure, and perhaps the decline in temperature at these depths. However, this is mere speculation as there exist several species that don't exhibit the same characteristics given those guidelines. In essence, we really don't understand why deep sea gigantism occurs. I do, however, severely doubt we've uncovered all the freakishly large species affected by dsg.

Even though it's likely there are systems to reduce the strain of food scarcity in abyssal lifeforms, a species as large as the one that would have uttered the Bloop would still need to consume a colossal amount of food to survive.

Very cool, this post. Incredibly creepy to think that there might be something that occupies the deepest depths of the ocean that is vastly bigger than anything we've ever clapped eyes on. Something on the scale of the Cloverfield monster would be terrifying.

Here is a good show that repeatedly refers to the "bloop" numerous times. Not sure how reliable it is, and it is a little out of the ordinary, but it's a really interesting watch.

Really interesting thread, gonna have to look into bloop as it sounds cool. We have mapped most of the land on the planet yet we have only explored less than 10% of the worlds waters, so who knows what we havent found yet. Though if we keep with what we understand abount most large organisms at least a pair or a single creature with the ability to hold young in gestation for extremely long periods would be needed to keep the species going. Then again in general, the larger the animal, the slower the heart rate and therefore the longer the life span so it could be a long surviving creature with a lower need to breed which would explain rare sightings as the population is kept extremely low.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


Solved?


The broad spectrum sounds recorded in the summer of 1997 are consistent with icequakes generated by large icebergs as they crack and fracture.


Sounds plausible (no pun intended).

well using occams razor, the most logical explanation (icequakes) is the best one.

The ‘Bloop’ mystery solved!

Frequently cited as an “insane mystery science hasn’t solved”, the bloop looks to have a reasonable explanation. Was it a mystery monster squid as most commonly thought? Sadly, no.

First some background in case you haven’t heard about the bloop:

It came from the depths of the South Pacific. Throughout the summer of 1997, a sound never before recorded burst from the abyss. News agencies scrambled; was this some new leviathan, an unknown monster from the deep? Nobody knew, and though this recording has taken its place among the permanent fixtures of the museums of the strange, the Bloop has never been identified.

Until now.

Acoustics Monitoring Program – Icequakes (Bloop).

The broad spectrum sounds recorded in the summer of 1997 are consistent with icequakes generated by large icebergs as they crack and fracture. NOAA hydrophones deployed in the Scotia Sea detected numerous icequakes with spectrograms very similar to “Bloop”.

They have even identified the probable location.

I love "The Bloop". It's given me a whole 'nother reason to stay the F out of the water!
There are also other noises which remain unexplained, like "Upsweep" and "Whistle". We know so little about our oceans that it's just downright scary and fascinating at the same time.

Whistle Wiki

Enormous creatures tend to eat massive quantities of very tiny things.

Icebergs cracking? No way! This is undoubtedly a super massive deep sea creature.

Loving this thread, the sea is so mysterious


I don't get how scientists can spend so much time and money on exploring space and calculating stuff that's billions of miles away when we've barely scratched the surface of discovery on Earth. Let's hope they get more into it, there must be so much strange stuff down at the bottom of the ocean.

Also with people saying they don't know how something as huge as what everyone thinks this creature is can survive and what it eats, well following the theory of how we think everything down there is bigger thank up here maybe it's like a whale and eats a whole lot of something small like krill, except down there it's massive krill


Just a thought

I always found it funny that the Bloop was recorded so closely to the locations of the fictional Ryl'yeh.

I still think lovecraft somehow knew that and wanted to mess with us
