Out of curiosity, couldnt one take into account the known world and arrive at the conclusion that the body of water is the Atlantic? Back in the day the Med was essentially the center of civilization, and the view of the world was incomplete. Is it possible, at the time MU is talked about, that any body of ocean would be taken as the atlantic?

The problem with the above otherwise reasonable post is that there was no time that Mu was talked about prior to LePlongeon making it up.

As I said, Mu was no part of any Pacific (or Atlantic) culture's mythology.

Lwplongeon thought he was translating Mayan. He had an entire story about Queen Mu (descended from Muians, or whatever they would have been called) migrating to Egypt from S. America and founding the Egyptian civilization.

However, it turned out that the "words" he was translating were actually numbers.

It wasn't for another hundred years that Mayan was finally (semi) reliably translatable.

SEARCHING FOR LOST CIVILIZATIONS WITH DRONES
They are using thermal sensors on drones now, and hope to have LiDAR on drones soon.

One can only "find" lost cultures from the air.

A civilization is more than that.

Admittedly, if it's only a thousand years old (can't date them from the air either) then it very well could be a civilization.

Best you can do from the air is find interesting sites to excavate and study.
