“The area already is under scrutiny for its melting ice cap, and some have suggested buried volcanoes could be a reason.”
Spot on! I’ve been saying this for years.
25 Dec 2020 – Scientists at the University of Chile’s Seismological Center say that Antarctica, normally a stable region of the world, has been hit by thousands of earthquakes in just the last three months, “more than a thousand earthquakes a day.”
The estimates range from 30,000 to 50,000, some measuring less than 1 on the Richter scale, others up to 6, reported Israel365 News.
“…an unprecedented 30,000-50,000 tremors shaking the Antarctic in the past three months, all concentrated in one spot.”
The spot is the Bransfield Strait, a 60-mile-wide body of water extending for some 300 miles.
The report explained that before the quakes, the strait was expanding by about one-third of an inch per year. Now it’s moving at six inches annually.
The area already is under scrutiny for its melting ice cap, and some have suggested buried volcanoes could be a reason.
If there are volcanoes, they also could explain the seismic activity and the huge chunks of ice falling off of ice floes into the ocean.
“It is also possible that the shaking is being caused by methane vents opening up. Earlier this year, a team of researchers with Oregon State University has confirmed the first active leak of sea-bed methane discovered at McMurdo Sound situated in the Ross Sea. Scientists believe that there is a large amount of methane sealed beneath the ocean floor off the coast of Antarctica,” the report said.
Do you suppose this increase in activity has anything to do with the recent conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn? How about the Grand Solar Minimum?
