Under The Sea

That's what we see from space. Let's try to keep it that way.

Under The Sea

Postby deja vu on Thu Dec 17, 2009 10:10 pm

Scientists have witnessed the eruption of a deep-sea volcano for the first time ever, capturing on video the fiery bubbles of molten lava as they exploded 4,000 feet beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Researchers are calling it a major geological discovery.

A submersible robot witnessed the eruption during an underwater expedition in May near Samoa, and the high-definition videos were presented Thursday at a geophysics conference in San Francisco.

A robotic arm collects samples at the West Mata Volcano nearly 4,000 feet beneath the Pacific Ocean, south of Samoa.

I wonder if this will halp them predict eruptions on the surface in the future.

Could be a parallel situation with acid reflux or feeling about to vomit-acid buildup is rapid, etc. Interesting.

The volcano rock production part of the video would be cool to view.
Old salt on board.

True this is now some of the various islands have expanded over the many years, for instance Hawaii is a good example, but probably so many others we do not know about.

Between you & me I would not want to be chancing my live of being one of the SCUBA divers with camera in hand to capture some of the amazing photos. Good as they should be the chances of life are a bit to chancie in my way of thinking.

Monaco to reclaim land from sea in order to expand
ANI
Monday, December 28, 2009 16:55 IST
London: In order to extend world's most densely populated country Monaco, Prince Albert II has launched a drive to build into the Mediterranean. He plans to reclaim an area of around 12.5 acres from the sea through a ground-breaking scheme that will allow the tiny population of the country to expand.

Monaco's current population is just over 32,000. Only a fifth of these are native Monegasques and a select few newcomers are taken on each year.

Architects Norman Foster and Daniel Libeskind are leading the race to extend Monaco. It will extend from Fontvieille District at the western foot of the "rock", where Monaco's palace and historic centre are situated, The Telegraph reports.http://www.dnaindia.com/world/report_monaco-to-reclaim-land-from-sea-in-order-to-expand_1328393

The Prince runs or is the head of a foundation involved in environmental issues. Why does he want luxury buildings on the new land--how does that expand the population by excluding the other income levels of society? Cost-recovery measure, it does seem unless the less-than-luxury set are expected to work in the buildings providing jobs. Will be interesting to find out how wastewater will be managed if the oil rig substructure is used (then how the structure will be monitored). Presumably, the land area will be in Monagasque water.

Disputed Bay of Bengal island 'vanishes' say scientists

A tiny island claimed for years by India and Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal has disappeared beneath the rising seas, scientists in India say.

The uninhabited territory south of the Hariabhanga river was known as New Moore Island to the Indians and South Talpatti Island to the Bangladeshis.

Recent satellites images show the whole island under water, says the School of Oceanographic Studies in Calcutta. Its scientists say other nearby islands could also vanish as sea levels rise. Underwater island now

I guess the ex-New Moore island might be called "No More" unless it pops up again, then it might be renamed to something else. I am not good enough a guessing names.

Mind you all the studying of life to no llve under the water & since some of it was left up to dry out like in a part of Austrlia, is not only interesting, but a bit frightening since some of the Cdns to Americans on the Pacific Coast might have THE BIG ONE come about.

The wave action caused sand to shift and to reveal part of a warship known in stories about Paul Revere.

Erosion from recent storms uncovered the wreck.


By Stefanie Geisler, Globe Correspondent

The wreck of the British warship that Paul Revere slipped by on his legendary journey to Lexington in 1775 has resurfaced in the shifting sands of Cape Cod, and federal park officials are seizing the moment by having the wreck "digitally preserved," using three-dimensional imaging technology.

"We know the wreck is going to disappear again under the sand, and it may not resurface again in our lifetimes," said William P. Burke, the historian at the Cape Cod National Seashore, noting that the last time any part of the HMS Somerset III had been sighted was 37 years ago.

"Somewhere down the road, if someone's researching the Somerset, or the effects of ocean currents on shipwrecks, or anything like that, they will have this record," he said. "We're in the forever business. We're looking at tomorrow, but we're also looking ahead indefinitely."http://www.boston.com/news/local/breaking_news/2010/04/_over_two_centu.html

Two stories away from the Polish plane crash investigation is a link to photographs of dolphins--crowds/pods of them--hanging out in the surf. Not the usual dolphin photos usually seen--they like to get some air!

There is even thought now that the Polish leader might have forced the pilot to make the last & fatal move to death of all.

You know now that we can get some equipment to much deeper in our waters, especially the oceans, we are learning about things we never heard of before. Thank you to good photography & one realizes what is down there is beyond the reasoning of the normal human. Especially when one looks at the super deep growth that deep yet can see that in Australia we have some of the underground reef that was left there & stumbled everyone as to why & how come.

I have a friend on the 'net that had a portion of his resourt area simply washed away due to a change in the sea, but told us that it would probably come back to normal as it has befoe, only this time he would have to make a much stronger wall & some other moves. Like trees & flowers to you name it were sort of left there with roots looking for a place to be feeding from. But he was correct as all arrived a year or so later on.

I guess because I use to be a Master SCUBA diver & went down to 300' was also proof that what was under a lake was to my interest & so the sea itself. Especially when you find some of the sea is missing oxigan & so the death of sea life in that area. Pointing out we know NOTHING about the sea or fresh waters.

Some bodies of water have garbage swirls in them: lost cargo, plastic wraps for cans, fishing lines and nets and junk. No wonder that when a report is made about a waterfowl or dolphin spotted with compression marks due to something wrapped around their bodies, people get concerned. Some will try to help the critter in trouble, if the critter can figure out that help, not a scare, is approaching.

Those dolphins look sooo happy. Stormy weather and big waves look scary but the dolphins are out and about.
You'll be smiling if you sing some songs.
