hmmm i remember watching somthing on the giant squid (never finished it...to boring fell asleep and never found out if they found it  crying.gif ) and they couldnt go that far down cause the shippy type thing that they built couldnt go down very far under the pressure. how fat have we gone down into the oceans??? cause even about 100 feet can hide somthing of segnificant size.

Well, if you look at the location at which this occured
http://stable.toolserver.org/geohack/geoha..._scale:40000000

There could very well be a living creature that has made the noise. Two reasons I will highlight are:
1. The ocean in which it inhabits is huge and not overcome by land.
2. El Nino brings all the fish near the Southern coast of South America bringing in a plentiful supply of fish

That is where the signal was received, not it point of origin. The point of origin was south from there hence NOAA think ice.

Catutie DSV Alvin can dive to 4km, giant squid have been filmed at 0.9km. DSV Nemo is due for complete in 2011 and has a range of 6.5km

That would depend on where you are, but the maximum I believe is 11km.
Squid do not go down that deep though.

oh right... my bad. However, the kraken comes to mind. It is reportedly 1km in diameter if i remember correctly. Though are squids or octopus' capable of making sound?

No, no mechanism for producing such a sound.
I however doubted this was an animal before I spoke to the guy who ran the investigation. Since I spoke to him I have more convinced that this is not animal. NOAA certain do not think so.

Wasn't it some crackpot who listens to whale songs that said it was an animal that made the sound because she didn't recognize it as a geological (or glacial as the possibility might be) in origin? How much geological/glacial sound is a whale researcher exposed to? I can understand if the range of sound is possible by living creatures, but to claim that it was an actual animal seems a little like putting the cart in front of the horse.

Someone had suggested it was an air bubble from an extremely large animal. Though more like a gas bubble of large proportions. It is also claimed to be first reported by South American natives. The sound if heard above surface would give you seizures or kill you.

ok so lets say the point they were at was 11km deep..we go down 6.5km deep and we still have 4.5km to go for somthing to hide in. and if it is somthing that is not afected by pressure and eats......squid once a year and then we have a hidden monster that makes the bloop

LOL! The "Bloop" was a squid fart! LOL! Nah, but, really, I think that it was either a giant squid or just some kind of deep sea floor gas release. ould be wrong though. Pull the plug on the bottom and we'll ALL find out! LOL!

Thanks to Mattshark it could not be a giant squid or anything belonging to such family as there is no mechanism to produce this sound with, let alone bring them to the surface to give everyone that hears it a seizure or killing them due to its extreme volume. Though the gas is something to look into.

That would they'd be exclusively in the Mariana trench. Which it simply can't be.
That is is also just unrealistic. Everything is affected by pressure. Big thinks are effected more.
Its called reality.

It was definitely not an air bubble. It was something out side the range of human hearing, like a dog whistle for example. Wouldn't have effected us.
NOAA say nothing about animals, South America and being deep. They do say it came from south of their station.
