i think bloop is the sound of an undiscovered whale. idk if its bigger than a blue whale, but my guess its probably 45-50 foot.

umm... you people do know that blue whales are bigger than megalodons ever were???

yes.gif
There was never a shark larger than a Blue Whale. There was a dinosaur longer than one though, but I don't think dinosaurs could breathe underwater.  rolleyes.gif

Could be in response to this movie - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTKzrVv7I_o. Personally looks more like a GL shark to me.

Yeah, that's a greenland shark, though it is a fairly large one from what I can see.

An undiscovered whale?
Surely you realize that whales are mammals and must surface for air.

And a whale that big would have been bound to be seen by now.

apparently they picked up a sound that was made by something bigger than a blue whale.  ohmy.gif



It sounds to me like a large bubble of gas being released, possibly due to an underwater volcanic eruption, or seismological event......did anyone cross check to see if something like that occurred at/previously to the recording?  I know it was sped up but if you had a large amount of gas being released form the ocean floor, wouldnt the amount of water it has to move through change/slow down its resonance?

From what I read, the "experts" in question came to the conclusion that:

Quote

The sound shares many characteristics with those emanated from biological creatures, in fact it fits those parameters so closely that a large number of researchers are convinced that its origin is animal. But in order for an aquatic animal to emit a sound that can travel over 3,000 miles though Earth's noisy oceans, scientists say that it would need an incredibly large noise-making apparatus, one much bigger than that of the blue whale.


Now granted, before I read that, I thought the same thing....gas being released from the sea floor or some sort of seismic event....but then I read how it must have eminated from a "biological" of emmense size. Now, my "logic-meter" tells me that something that would create a "bloop" sound of that nature would have to be releasing air or gas to make a sound such as that...and we know that is wasn't "whale-song" of any sort that has been previously identified. If a sound like that could only be made(from what we know and understand) from air or gas ESCAPING from an object....wouldn't that narrow-down that number of species that the "bloop" could have eminated from?....................mammals in particular?

yes ive heard and read this story quite some time ago..facsinating to me really..ive always had a love for the oceans and aquatic life and all of the mysteries we still do not even know reside in the depths of 70% of our earth. i remember reading somethig about how the sound was recorded on bouys(sp) set to record tidal movements and whale sounds and such..and that the sound resinated between two of the bouys that were like 5000 miles apart..anything that can project a sound that far has to be enormous in its shear size..and that the "bloop" was recorded at a biological reverberation frequency..meaning, that only an organic mass could create the fequency of the sound..something klike that..ive always hoped they would discover something about this more...some great leviathin residing under the waves somewhere in the ocean?...not a far stretch at all. imo...i will have to do some research..i didnt know that japanese researchers did any investigations of the trench..but i wouldnt be surprised if they did find something..i just finished watching a japanese oceanographer get the first pics of a giant squid ever recorded, not too long ago... yes.gif

I would love for something of such size to exist...but given the depth, and the fact that the deeper you go the smaller the organism(yes, giant squid, we have evidence of it's existence), I am aloof to say that there is a "leviathan" living and thriving in the deep, deep oceans......I HOPE there is....I would be FIRST in line to see it....but all of the signs discourage the likelihood(IMHO).
