With respect, I would like to stick with my original thought, when this unusual geological feature first made the news.
It is a geological feature, albeit an unusual one, the like of which may never have seen before, it may even be unique...
I'm sure the truth will come out eventually, and prove to be somewhat less fascinating than the hype....

Can't place my finger on it yet though...
Maybe. Maybe we're the first. Until you have more than one data point it's not possible to say.
300 feet's a technical dive. If you have a 1 atmosphere suit, you can do it all day long, but it's tough to move around in one and they're expensive as hell, also takes a lot of maintenance. You can also do that one in "moon suits", the sort where you're supplied by air from the surface. Also tough to move around. If you wanted to crawl all over it with some degree of freedom, the best way to do it is with trimix using a CCR. This lets you spend a relative lot of time on site, but at that depth will wear you out due to temperature and breathing mix density at depth. You also have a relative lot of compression chamber time since trimix has nitrogen in it. It's going to be somewhat expensive any way you go at it. 300 feet is a pretty deep dive, one for which you will have to pay well for equipment and divers. I've been to 180+ feet on straight air on what was essentially a bounce dive a couple of times, deeper on mixed gas and trimix. I think the deepest I ever went on a task dive was something like 250 feet on trimix with a CCR, but I did a LOT of line time on the way back up. It was also a night dive so I spent a lot of time basically napping clipped to the line stops. If it's warm water you can spend a lot more time before you poop out, dry suits add their own special issues.

At least this story is beginning to get interesting now!! The electronic equipment failing within 200 meters of this thing, and now these awesome details!!
Thanks Arken! This might just be the biggest story we have ever heard about!!
IF, things all add up to what it is looking like so far anyways.....
S&F Arken....Great thread
The only thing that makes it interesting is that some people believe all of this. I think they are just making up stories to keep they audience entertained and breathlessly awaiting the TV premier of the "Baltic Yahoos" reality comedy show.
Just another totally pointless and stupid thread.
I don't normally like black or white thinking but,.....
You are either a government shill, paid to post in onlone forums such as this, and do your best to sway public opinion/ derail,mock,and ridicule any thread which has the potential of waking the masses and creating a national security threat.
You are a very fearful person who sees this as something soooo threatening to their fragile worldview which theatens to totally uproot all of your deeply held, firmly planted beliefs and makes a mockery of everything you always thought you knew. This MUST NOT be true and you will do anything and EVERYTHING to allow yourself to keep your head buried in the sand.
Which one are you?
I DO NOT forget A holes who just think they can let # fall out of their mouths with ZERO consequence or accountability.
As this continues to unfold I WILL make references to your assanine post and position and I will KEEP making references to your assanine post until you beg me to stop. You will eat your words whether you like it or not. Hope you've got plenty of ketchup.edit on 28-6-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)

I don't know. We will fnd out though.
Especially when they get better sonar readings.

I have speculated the same,or maybe a few soviet nuke subs/experimental reactors,encased in concrete.
The sections on the exterior may be casemate lines,and the hollow passages may be the inside of any number of secret soviet projects.
We know they were active in the black sea area.
Whatever it is,its fascinating IMO-and I wish some folks would just give it a chance,rather than claiming its a load of baloney before we know the reality of the subject.
In this vein of thinking, I wonder what the depth here relative to the deepest Balkan Sea depths are. Then the remoteness ie. unlikely to be observed if say it were a nuclear whatnot being buried with concrete. In other words, would this location be the most prudent to use to avoid any prying eyes from seeing some highly Illegal dump? I was in the masonry trade for many years, actually a career in it, lifelong. When we pumped concrete of any appreciable amount under watter, it quickly sluffed like a pancake. The only way to build height was to pump really dry mud ..(concrete) and only then could we build a base....... without the use of forms to contain the shape. Still, when pumping mud, we almost always had a beehive shape to it, and an occasional avalanche/sluff from one of the sides wherever the weight over stressed the ability for the mud to stay in a uniform shape. This is just the characteristic of mud in a concrete pump. A second difficulty would be guiding the end of the concrete pump hose to get the desired pile-up shape.
