Over the past few weeks I've read several threads here on ATS regarding a theory that a huge methane bubble is forming below the seabed and may be
preparing to erupt with catastrophic consequences. Some have even mentioned that there is evidence, from a NOAA research ship, of the seabed rising
as this bubble expands. I've also listened to a similar theory described by Richard Hoagland in which he predicts tsunamis if an eruption occurs.
Well, after hearing these theories, a question came to mind. If the seabed is indeed rising due to this methane bubble, then shouldn't it be
reflected by shallower and shallower depth readings being transmitted from the ROVs operating at the well head?
In the beginning of the disaster when it was reported that the well head was a mile deep, I seem to remember watching a live ROV feed coming from a
little over 5000 ft. deep and thinking to myself, "Well it's not a mile deep but it's close enough to call it that."
Yesterday I was watching a MSM news source and while they were reporting on the new cap currently being placed on the BOP, they were showing another
live ROV feed that indicated a depth of 4933 ft.
I'm not sure that my memory of the original depth of over 5000 ft. was accurate or not and this is why I am posting this thread. If my memory is
correct, then I believe this might be a direct indication that the seabed is indeed rising.
I know that there are a lot of people who have been vigorously watching the live feeds and I was wondering if anyone has been keeping track of the
depth readings and are they getting shallower? Any thoughts?
( After creating this thread, I realized that I probably should have posted this question in the "BP Livefeed Discussion" thread. Not knowing how
to delete this thread, I copied it to the other. Hope I did that correctly, if not, maybe the MOD can fix it. Sorry, my bad.)
