Bermuda Triangle- often known for its mysterious disappearances, also called as the Devil’s Triangle situated in the North Atlantic ocean have said to had sunk over 75 planes and ships in it to which Popular Culture has associated it with paranormal activity or extraterrestrial activity.Now this mystery seems to get unlocked as the experts at University of Southampton have claimed the natural phenomena known as “rogue waves” for all the disappearances.
“There are storms to the south and north, which come together, and if there are additional ones from Florida, it can be a potentially deadly formation of rogue waves.” said Simon Boxall,Oceanographer,University of Southampton .
Rogue waves have been referred to as extreme waves as per the scientists as they can reach a height up to 100 feet. They were first monitored by satellites in 1997 off the coast of South Africa.“The waves are more than twice the size of surrounding waves, are very unpredictable, and often come unexpectedly from directions.” as quoted by the Daily Mail. The research team of Southampton build a model of the USS Cyclops,a ship which said to have disappeared in 1918 with 300 lives.
As per Dr Simon Boxall, the atrocious areas in Atlantic could witness the storms coming from various directions probably perfect conditions for rogue waves. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stated that “The ocean has always been a mysterious place to humans, and when foul weather or poor navigation is involved, it can b very deadly place,” and further added that it shares no different degree of air and see as like other places does.
