The sea floor is not rising and collapsing. Not to be crude here, but give me a break. Such movement of tons of matter would create more than a slight
dust plume from around the ROV.
The optical effect takes place as the ROV's robotic arm is (presumably) boring into the surface. The drill, rotor, what have you, strikes something
solid immediately and all the misplaced torque (it has to go somewhere, if it can't bore into the ground) causes the ROV to lift in place. The ROV
disengages, and it comes back down creating a dust plume and the "perceived" optical illusion that the sea floor rises and collapses...
The commentary was ridiculous, as was the ultra-drama, and the self-advertising equally monotonous and nauseating. Who are these people that watch ROV
streams alll daaayy looongg...
