Aerial photography has always been a very useful tool for Archaeology and has been used since planes can fly.

The advantages of gaining a good aerial view of the ground had been long appreciated by archaeologists as a high viewpoint permits a better appreciation of fine details and their relationships within the wider site context.

This excellent post gives us the opportunity to guess and work on various hypotheses I'd summarize in two big lines:

1) natural formations
2) structures from ancient times

Nature has an strange taste for symmetry and precise geometry. In my opinion, with the data available, the two first exemples could be natural sea-bottom formations. If we had to act in a Archeologist way, we should now prepare an unmmaned underwater prospection to get some field pictures.

Third set, Japanese ones. These are the Yonaguni structures and there's still no conclusive agreement in what they could be, but is seems the community is slowly admitting these could be the oldest human structures on Earth, not less than a 10.000 years BC (est)

Humans would have altered a pre-existing natural formation to create a town, more or less in the form of a zigurat. It clearly has corridors and steps, platforms and roads.

In my opinion, being just 18 meters below surface, and being estimated pre-Glacial or coexisting with the Glacial Period, it could have been "drowned" in the floods subsided by the end of Glacial era.

There would be still one piece to fit in there to me. It's strange how a culture that can alter and work a rock in that astonishing way left not a single religious-artistic-economic-(you-name-it) carving. Not a single trace that could link them directly to their town was left behind.

Wow this is awesome, I wouldn't even think there would be man made structures sunk at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean but the question is, how can structures be really just that deep down there? Wow that's crazy lol Excellent thread with great theories!

And plus, it's too coincident that it looks naturally made, that is definitely man-made.

Some more information, photos, and videos of the underwater city off the coast of Cuba, as well as info on pyramids all over the world can be found at.

First timer here and I must say that the evidence of submerged/sunken civilizations all over the globe seems to be a real possibility. The anomilies off of Japan and even India are the most striking to me. Regarding the images of "roads" off of the florida coast, I will say it could be ancient manmade structures but the more I look at it the more it resembles trawling damage to the sea floor. I would need better images to make a more firm conclusion. The fact is human civilization,has been around MUCH longer than 10,000 or so years. The evidence is in the ancient writings of India, Egypt and many others, but these are considered myths by mainstream science and debunkers. I am of the firm belief that civilization has risen and fallen many times over, for many different reasons and the more we explore the depths of the oceans the more we will unlock about our past.

I was saying you need to look and make your own mind up. But if you looked at the history channel video I posted, the American scientist actually points out a natural, (in his view) structure not underneath water, at the same japanese island. It is of the same straight angular design. You could also check out the nature of cracking in basalt rock to look for angularity...see giant's causeway. The case is still open anyway, even amongst scientists.

Whats up guys? I love threads like this it truly amazes me what is yet to be discovered in our oceans. Great find!

On a side note havent seen a thread made on this discovery made recently if there is one forgive me im new. Scientists think they may have recently discovered Atlantis off of spain. Please dont flame me for talking about atlantis i just found it interesting and wanted to know what everyone thought.

heres the link

I've always been very interested in ancient civilizations. There are things like this all over the planet, but archeologists are afraid to admit they are roads and buildings because it will throw their theories off by thousands of years.They are so sure that they have figured out the wheres, whens and whys of man's past, something like this would make them have to rethink everything. AND possibly tarnish someone's image, make them look like a pompous know it all. Can't have THAT, can we?

These are just bathymetry artifacts... Just a function of data processing they use to generate sea floor topology:

Very interesting. However, I thought this thread was going to be about the Underwater Runways! At this point, I'm not sure what I believe these lines to be, but I will most definitely be looking into this over the next few days. I'm especially interested b/c I will be moving to Florida in the next couple weeks! I smell an exploration!

see my last post !! about the Inca city comparison with Cuba chart Lines

When I saw the pictures the first idea that I got was that they can probably be submarine cables. Or with other word optical cables submerged into the sea.
Wikipedia link about them.

And a comparison that I made with a picture from the first post.

And the image that shows the entire network of cables.

They form similar shapes, and I think this is a possibility that needs to be considered to.

Good gravy! Please email this to Richard C. Hoagland at so he can give us his take on it. In this image there is a similarity to the face on Mars that I find most incongruous! Of course, this is my impression, from an untrained eye, but wouldn't it be interesting if.....

It is impossible to photograph submarine cables from satellites. The resolution ain't enough to do that. These cables are typically 69 millimeters (2.7 in) in diameter, too thin to be photographed from space!

Laying a submarine cable.
Notice the thickness.

Yes I read that, about the thickness, but maybe they are stacked in a bigger group. Or on the other hand they are not cables.

Antartica below Australia may indeed become another human inhabited continent when the ice melts and could assit in population over cluster. It would have to be run obviosly by the United Nations

These two megalithic stones were photographed by an R.O.V. at a depth of 2000 ft below sea level off the western shore of Cuba back in 2001.

As someone who was trained in the military to analyze images there are a couple things that come to mind when I see the imagery:

First, one of basic dictums of imagery analysis is 'straight lines don't occur in nature', nor do perfect circles. So anytime I see a complex series of relatively straight lines, it sort of tells me that it's probably not natural.

Second, as someone wrote earlier, the image quality (resolution) is no where near good enough to detect undersea cables that would stretch over wide areas of seas. There are submerged pipelines and such that may indeed be detected, but based on where these are, I am doubting that these are. Therefore, the cables explanation is not likely to me.

Third, the explanation of pixelation effects is not very likely to me either because... well..... it just doesn't look like any pixelation I have ever seen. Pixelation tends to come back as negative returns on the gray-scale, which means black. So if the anamolies were pixelation, I would expect to see lots of black boxes, which is the actual faulty pixel portion based on either sensor or processing error.

So is summary, my analysis of the images presented leads me to believe that the anomalies are probably unnatural. I once read somewhere, that rising ocean levels at the end of the Ice Ages, caused a total land area the size of North America to become submerged. Based on that, I find it easy to believe that an enormous portion of humankind's ancient history was submerged with it. And because early civilization tended to be founded along oceans or large rivers, I would suspect that the most advanced portions of any ancient civilizations would suffer the most. Those human settlements most likely to be unaffected by rising seas, would probably have been relatively backwards.
