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).
As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
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.
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.
