The earth is a terrestrial planet and a beautiful planet of life. When we stand in space and look at the earth, you will find that it presents a beautiful blue brilliance. The reason why the earth is a beautiful blue planet has something to do with the ocean covering 71% of the earth’s surface.
Water is the source of life. It is the abundant water resources on the surface of the earth that will have the birth of early life, the evolution of life, and the birth of mankind. Since ancient times, the attractiveness of the ocean to humans has always been high. Although humans have entered the age of science and technology and have certain ocean exploration capabilities, the understanding of the ocean is still only about 10%. Most of the ocean mysteries are us. Still not cracked.
The most mysterious area in the ocean is the underwater world. If you have been sightseeing in the ocean, I believe you will be shocked by that beautiful scene. Of course, this kind of beautiful underwater scenery is only available on the shallow seabed. If it is in the deep sea area, it will not give us the feeling of beauty but fear of fear.
The underwater world is far more mysterious than the terrestrial world, and there have been many great geological movements in the long billions of years of the earth, and each geological movement will bring huge impacts and changes to the ecological structure of the earth. The impact of these changes is basically invisible to us on the surface of the land, and many traces of history will sink to the bottom of the sea.
Therefore, in exploring and studying the mysteries of the ocean floor, in addition to exploring life, it is more important for scientists to understand the history of the earth through some geological information retained on the ocean floor, especially the evolution and development history of life on the earth. Some people even think that there may also be an intelligent civilization on the seabed. Of course, this is only people’s conjecture. At present, scientists have not found any traces of civilization on the seabed.
In addition to some biological and historical geological structures on the seabed, there may also be some relics of prehistoric civilization. It is a mystery to know whether prehistoric civilization has appeared in the long history of the earth. Although we are not sure whether other civilizations have existed before human civilization, they have existed in the tens of thousands of years of human civilization. Some mysterious civilizations, such as Maya civilization and Atlantis.
We can find ruins in the Mayan civilization on land, but the Atlantis civilization has not found any relevant ruins. Some people have speculated that the ruins of Atlantis may be located in a certain area of the ocean floor. The mystery of the seabed attracts countless explorers and many scientists.
According to the scientific report of the “American Geophysical Union 2019 Fall Meeting”, scientists have discovered a mysterious seabed phenomenon off the coast of California in the United States, that is, thousands of mysterious “holes” lurking. Preliminary seabed survey data shows that there is a layer of soft sediment on these thousands of circular caves, and with the passage of time, it seems that many caves have become “survival habitats” for sea creatures. It still has certain benefits for the growth of organisms.
The number of these caves is very large, there are about 15,000, and there are many very large caves. Most of the caves are more than 11 meters in diameter, and the depth is more than 1 meter. It is not surprising that there are caves on the seabed. Anyone who has experienced seabed exploration should understand that the seabed is actually a place with a lot of caves.
Many of these caves are related to the formation of methane gas. It should be known that the resources of the ocean can far exceed that of the land. Especially the ocean contains a large amount of combustible ice, which is very important for the future of mankind. This is a kind of relative coal and stone caves. A very clean resource. Combustible ice exists in the seabed in large quantities, and their decomposition will release methane. Therefore, the release of seabed methane gas is relatively large, and the discharge of these gases will form many caves on the seabed.
It’s just that the caves formed by methane gas are relatively small, and the 15,000 mysterious caves discovered by scientists in the Pacific Ocean are all very large, which obviously cannot be caused by the release of methane. Scientists have also discovered through further research that these caves may have existed for about 50,000 years. These are some ancient caves.
The scientific team also used tools to explore and discovered these “micro-depressed” caves with steep sides. I also saw the “tail” similar to the sediment, and the caves in many areas seemed to be shifting in the same direction. How these huge number of mysterious caves were formed is still a mystery, and more exploration and research by scientists are needed.
And exploring larger caves under the sea often means greater risk. You must know that the caves on the bottom of the sea are not ordinary. They are basically occupied repeatedly in various oceans and used as their homes. Some experienced seabed explorers often go to sea caves to catch some particularly precious fishes. Of course, this is only for some small caves. If it is a cave with a particularly large diameter, you must be careful when entering it. If it is not done, a huge monster will appear.
The underwater world still has too many secrets for mankind. The current technology of human beings is still unable to achieve free exploration on the seabed, especially in the mysterious deep sea. Although some submersibles can dive to a depth of 10,000 meters, they cannot explore freely. Can only stay for a short time in a limited area of the deep ocean floor.
When human technology can freely explore in the ocean, it will truly conquer the ocean. At that time, the ocean will have no secrets to mankind. At that time, perhaps we can truly understand the history of the earth and the origin of life through the ocean. Moreover, the ocean floor is also the closest place to the inside of the earth. In the future, we will explore the underground world, perhaps through the ocean to enter.
