Researchers find possible traces of continent off coast of Brazil


www.foxnews.com

A team of Brazilian and Japanese researchers made the discoveries during a month-long expedition above the Rio Grande Elevation, which is a rise on the ocean floor around 930 miles off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Reuters reports.

Using a three-person submarine making dives as deep as 21, 000 feet, the team found granite and minerals like iron and cobalt.

The materials found differ from the rest of the surrounding seabed, leading researchers to hypothesize that the area was once an island

To think that once was dry land is now 21,000 feet below the sea is mind blowing to me.
It really makes one wonder if there was a older , very advanced civilization before ours . There very well may have been and we would never know it.
Further evidence of atlantis and Mu perhaps..............................................

I wonder if there is a simple (or complex) calculation for figuring out approximately how long ago it would have been to where that part of the ocean, 21,000 ft below, was dry (not a ocean)???


Stuff like this is SOOO very interesting, OP... Nice find!

Scientists find sunken continent off Brazil

Published on 8 May 2013 08 May 2013 A team of Japanese and Brazilian scientists say they may have discovered part of the earth's original continent off the coast of Brazil before the land masses drifted apart.

At the very tops of the Rocky Mountains there are fossilized seabed creatures.

It could explain why Puma Punku is at such a high elevation, and why it's so destroyed, it fell apart on the ride upward.

Could it be that with pole shifts we get crust displacement?

Could that be the sudden event that ended the ice age causing the great flood that is talked about by every religion.

I was wondering the same thing.
If this is evidence of the Pangaea Supercontinent it could go back 225 million years.

Perhaps a pre-flood civilization. Like that of Puma Punku. There's another site off Japan that's clearly man made but it's never talked about. Yonaguni Monument

There was me worrying about sea levels rising, and it was earth levels lowering I should have been fretting about.

perhaps this discovery will lead to recalculating the time frame for the seafloor spreading rate


being some 980 miles east of the present coastline makes the 4cm year contenential drift eather slower than the real spreadeing or there are other factors that must be given more relevance, like the erosion that tapers the coastline into the ocean must be far greater than previously proposed

the mid-atlantic ridge where S America & Africa go off in opposite directions is more or less in a static position so the drift in 250m years is not the distance between coastlines of today... but the geoligical edges of each landmass...

this is what has been revealed... the once theoretrical edge of the S American continent is now a known point on the tectonic plate... so by doing a symmetrical calculation of land erosion on the African side--- the geologists can better calculate the actual spread of the seafloor since the (Pangeaen) breakup started


the rise in ocean volume made the spread seem wider than it actually is... by nearly 1,960 miles at this guessing stage in analysis

No, for the simple reason it is over 1 billion year old continental crust. I would also add that the scientists involved have themselves stated that they do not expect to find anything there, it is just interesting to geologists / scientists. They believe it was an island just offshore from the Pangea super continent.

One billion years is a huge period of time to cover. For example, at the start of the Carboniferous period (360 million years ago) the UK was still at the equator (instead of our current location just shy of the Arctic Circle). Therefore i would suggest that withing this time frame there have periods where this landmass was part of various land and ocean formations before it got to its current location.

Mu, long time ago.

Also some of the pyramids, the oldest ones, seem to be on the mountains in North America. And the mountains rose.

Atlantis sure, but in the "Shaver Mystery" along with various sources including the underground empire theory, the continent of Mu was placed somewhere in the pacific near south america, it was touted to have a massive pyramide in the center.

Awesome theory that keeps getting more and more proven. Pure awesomeness.

The island of Atlantis should not as far as off the coast of Brazil.

It should be nearer to the west coast of Africa.

It is interesting video, but plate tectonics is real.

Land fragments are moving. However the motion of these land fragments does not follow a set pattern as explained in this video.

There could be many reasons to movements of continents and one very good reason could be very large meteorite strikes. A huge amount of energy is transferred to the land mass by such strikes. It should cause motion as earth is hot inside and continents literally float on lava.
