the Bermuda Triangle
Transcript of the Bermuda Triangle
disappear in the
and compasses go
haywire. What could be
happening in this odd place?
the heart is located between Miami, Bermuda, and San Juan, Puerto Rico
the rest stretches east into the Sargasso Sea and south towards Barbados
over 50 ships and 20 aircraft have disappeared over the past 100 years
My essential question is :
What is this mysterious force?
Methane Gas and Tidal Waves
live bombs from wars
Donkin, Andrew Bermuda Triangle DK Pub. 2000
Oxlade, Chris The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle Heinemann Library 2006
Whirlpools - occur infrequently
Aliens - no scientific proof
Atlanteans - no evidence
Pirates - no accounts or witnesses
Naval bombs - too coincidental
Methane gas is a clear, odourless chemical compound which is commonly found on Earth. Methane hydrates have been found near the U.S. coast. When hydrates erupt they create areas of bubbly water that cause a failure of buoyancy and therefore can speedily sink ships without warning. Methane hydrate vents at the bottom of the ocean can also build up pressure and erupt, causing giant tidal waves up to 100 feet high. These waves can easily capsize ships. Methane gas could cause aircraft crashes by affecting the density of the air. The air would not produce enough lift to keep the aircraft in flight.
