A Monster, a Leviathan lie beneath the Antarctic Ocean. A latest frightening discovery brings havoc into the scientific community. www.dailygalaxy.com...

A chain of a dozen undersea volcanoes some reaching nearly 10,000 feet above the ocean floor , and several of them active, have been near Antarctica, south of the South Sandwich Islands — desolate, ice-covered volcanoes that rise above the southern Atlantic Ocean about halfway between South America and South Africa which erupted as recently as 2008. It was the first such discovery in that region.




"That's a big volcano. That's a very big volcano. If that was on land it would be quite remarkable," said Philip Leat, a volcanologist with the British Antarctic Survey who led a seafloor mapping expedition to the region in 2007 and 2010. "We knew there were other volcanoes in the area, but we didn't go trying to find volcanoes,"



"It was quite frightening, actually," Leat said. The onboard instruments revealed that some of the peaks rise within 160 feet of the ocean's surface.


What if this huge "caldera" explode?

Now we know what is melting our ice caps, warming our oceans and killing our fish.

I'm guessing that quake they had March 06 is related to does vulcano's.

I have a gut feeling there is going to be a massive EQK in the Antartica between 2011-2014.

It must have been the oil spill... or pollution... isnt there some man made reason for this!?!?!?!

All those plastic bags we recycle, and then volcanoes make it look as if we should just be pumping our sewage into the oceans.

Wait, wait... help me out here. The article says:



The team mapped an area about 100 miles wide and nearly the length of Britain. The missing parts of the image are where islands blocked the mapping sonar.

And as you also noted, the article says:

A chain of a dozen undersea volcanoes some reaching nearly 10,000 feet above the ocean floor...


According to those numbers, should I see some volcano peaks 100 times taller than the smallest width of the image?

Huge volcano does not mean massive, explosive super volcano. These are pretty "safe" volcanoes in the world turn. Seem to be on term with Mt St Helens in shape/size. I note a few flank collapses. So they may or may not be explosive... but just at first glance, they don't look the type to be super volcano explosion type.

1 mile = 5280 feet, 10,000 feet mountain = 2 mile high volcanoes. Also the view we see is not the entire scan area.

I noticed them too.

What if their flank collapse? A Tsunami?

Oh my gawd... I don't know my feet from my miles.

Thanks for clearing that up, dude.

Yes, though where it is and surrounding regions, the resulting tsunamis would not impact to many...I mean I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure it would be small tsunamis by the time the resulting waves worked their way to a noteable place.

No problem
Was confident it was a miss-read lol... technically, mountains can't get "too" big or they sink into the planet until they are not "to big" lol.

Did you think that before or after reading the article?

Maybe this could be a good reason why water samples are coming back with high amounts of CO2?

They have been there millions/billions of years, yet with ATS fear-monger mode turned to 'on', made to be on the verge of a global cataclysm. And now instead of people commenting on how natural object so massive are only now being detected, this thread will turn into what if cornucopia of doom and mostly gloom. All the op had to do was to leave this line out, "What if this huge "caldera" explode?", and it might have been an interesting thread. Next.

If it hasn't yet, it won't likely soon. And if it did, there's no guarantee it would affect the Earth from such a cut off location.

Bare in mind the sheer volume of water pushing down on those volcanoes.
