No, I never heard them, I saw them on the feeds....since the feeds have been limited, not as much. A few days ago, I saw one going on, but they had it so pixilated, it didn't show up when I tried to take pics. I have been off for a while because of a death in my family. I checked when I was able to, but they are not showing much now. I'm sure there are still things going on, but we just can't see them. I've been trying to see if there have been any videos captured since I've been out, and if I find anything, I will post it. Not sure what they are doing right now, but they were sawing something....not sure what though.....

Leak or build up about to release...

Pretty Dirty with Oil & Hydro build up...the section below the pipe w/ green stripe is leaking along the rim at the floor's edge...

Well, there's a surprise (not!) How about Corexit for starters!!

This is obviously a major situation, but not one we at ATS didn't expect. I wonder if it will get supressed like all the important findings in the GOM?

Just went to the site.
The article is there, but the video is no longer available.
Why does that not surprise me?

I can't remember if i posted this before...... It's a video I made and posted on youtube to hopefully remind people what BP did to our beautiful gulf and the awesome creatures who live there....In the beginning, I show what was done to them, then in the middle, I tried to show the way that it SHOULD be, and ended with showing the contrast may be hard to watch, but it needs to be watched, so we NEVER forget....these creatures are magnificent, and need to be protected.

Kudo's to you girl. They should play that every nite on CNN. and every other news media. Shame on all of us for forgetting for a second, that everything we do to this earth affects someone and something else. And for so many years to come. My kids grandchildren may never see some of those beautiful creatures except in photo's.
They may never get a chance to swim in the ocean or a lake in their future.
I have NEVER sat at my computer and cried like I have in the last half hour..

Boy Oh Boy, What have we done to our home.

Hi, I had been alerted to look at the ROV video in question. As a geologist, I would like to put in my opinion.
Looks like the ALT was stuck at 100 (1.00 ft or 100 ft??) and the COG or Hdg (???) stationary at 130 or 150 deg. Difficult to make out the numbers but apparent they do no change much.

The Rov did not look like it was scrapping the sea floor. Also if you look carefully the soil bulge developed towards the metallic cylindrical skid, forming a distinct flat (looks more like a crescent depression) around the skid just before "hell broke loose". If the rov skid was scrapping the floor, the soil would bulge at the skid first.

Also the camera was facing 130 / 150 deg. So the seabed crest is consistent with the slope at an angle (left) to the direction of camera. (If the camera was facing north the crest should be on the right - stating this so you know the effect of orientation). Earlier the seafloor looked disturbed but generally flat without the crest. I see the coords did not change much - so very little ROV movement.

Now the interesting part. You have to refer to my article at

Remember this is a mole hill which I think is caused by mud building up - in other words a mud-volcano. Thus the gas and oil could built up from below (thru the fault) above the ROV or further downhill. If above, the surficial layer swelled and eventually slide down. Alternatively the gas & oil built up further downhill and caused a mini landslide. Either way, the seafloor would be seen moving laterally (camera effect) downhill. After the release of gas and oil, the mud - debris will flatten (not a major landslide to cause a huge scar) and the seafloor will look generally flat with wrinkles again. The ROV operators must have been observing this phenomenon on a regular basis. Thus they knew when to switch on the lights to record this.

The first time probably scared the lights out of them but after the first few, they are probably expert watchers - just like those geysers watchers at Yellow stone Park - watching and timing the Old faithful.

It still says it but is at DH site.
Does that mean the Atlantis which is in water over 7000 ft in depth and produces twice as much as DH volcano being said on top of screen of DDII ROV #2 feed say its gonna blow???

Hi! Thank you so much for your analysis....I have been trying to find someone with answers on this....and I really appreciate it! They were watching this particular area DAILY, for quite some time. This is where many of the explosive episodes took place and I belive still are. Did you notice the part of the video where the red/ rust color matter was literally GUSHING from the floor like a geyser? What do you think that was?

I saw that too! WTH???? If nothing is going on, it's strange they are still VERY busy down there.....why?

Here is some info on "Atlantis"......second verse, same as the first.....this is dangerous.

posted on Oct, 9 2010 @ 05:52 PM
They are only showing the side of the casing without a leak they never show the leak.

And speaking of BP Atlantis last night being written on top of DDII 2 feed look here,
It looks like this commercial was filmed on it,
if so we might have a problem.

Sorry about being off topic a little i just had to say its kinda funny.
