Granted that - however I believe we are witnessing the effects said methane is having upon water - via water displacement caused by the outgassing of
these methane leaks. If indeed this is Methane Hydrates that are beginning to outgas, then I'm in agreement with you on the item appearing bright
white within the imagery... with one possible exception:
The oil gusshing through these ruptures may be too dense in volume to be able to penetrate via IR to even see the Methane signatures at this point.
Look how black the images got in just two days!!
That's alot of pressure, and alot of movement - of a very large volume of densly packaged material.
Something big is moving and shaking things around in that location - it's pretty obvious...
Unfortunately, i've had to resize these images to get them to post here within the forum, which infortunately doesn't do this post justice. One
image in particular I'd like to bring everyone's attention to is this one that I will directly link to here:
If you observe the whitish formation, it's very apparent that it is indeed pushing a rather sizeable amount of black oil outwards in front of it! so
it must be something within the waters that is moving this black oil outwards in the front of it and shaping the oil into a shape conforming to it's
Secondly, if you observe the rounded appearance of what looks like another large release of Methane gas which exists just to the west of that large
one I claim is outgasing at a 45 degree angle, it also appears that a rather large mass of oil is appearing from that point as well, flowing in two
separate plumes away from that point...
Please refer to the imagery I linked here and see for yourself if indeed my observations are indeed correct.
Thanks for your posts, I'd like to be proven wrong on this but I just don't see that happening...
Possibilities are endless however lol... PHAGE might help... =
i'm gonna request Commissioner Gordon light up the Phage Beacon - He should be along shortly after that...
