Has the mystery of the Bermuda triangle been solved? Disappearances caused by 100ft & # 039; rogue waves & # 039;

It is believed that the region, which covers a stretch of sea between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda (illustrated), has claimed dozens of ships and planes in the last century and hundreds of lives

From underwater pyramids to hexagonal clouds and extraterrestrial bases, scientists and conspiracy theorists have worked out all the scenarios imaginable over the years to explain the mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle.

It is believed that the region, which covers a stretch of sea between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, has claimed dozens of ships and planes in the last century and hundreds of lives.

Now, researchers say that waves up to 100 feet high could be to blame.

Experts at the University of Southampton believe that the mystery can be explained by a natural phenomenon known as "rebel waves."

Researchers recreated the monstrous water surges for the Channel 5 documentary The Bermuda Triangle Enigma & # 39 ;.

Unauthorized waves are exceptionally powerful and dangerous, and can reach heights of up to 100 feet (30 meters).

Scientists often call rogue waves "extreme storm waves."

The Southampton research team built a model of the USS Cyclops, a huge ship that disappeared in the triangle in 1918 and claimed 300 lives.

And because of its large size and flat base, it is not long before the model is exceeded with water during the simulation.

The Cyclops was a ship that transported coal and was used to transport fuel to American warships during the First World War, and was on its way from Bahia, in Salvador, to Baltimore, when it disappeared in 1918.

No remains of the 542-foot vessel have ever been found, nor have any traces of the 306 crew and passengers it was carrying at that time been found.

While theoretically it could have disappeared anywhere between Bahia and Baltimore, not necessarily in the Triangle, supporters of the theory argue that the lack of a distress call from the ship means that it encountered a supernatural end.

The 309 killed on board the Cyclops are still the biggest loss of life in US naval history. UU That does not include combat.

WHAT ARE THE ROGUE WAVES?

The big waves are exceptionally powerful and dangerous.

The waves are spontaneous and can reach heights of up to 100 feet (30 meters).

Scientists often call rogue waves "extreme storm waves."

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), waves are more than twice the size of the waves that surround them, are very unpredictable and often arrive unexpectedly from the directions.

Oceanic phenomena are often steep with unusually deep depressions.

Dr. Simon Boxall, an ocean and land scientist, says that an infamous area in the Atlantic can see three massive storms coming together from different directions, the perfect conditions for a rebellious wave.

Boxall believes that such an increase in water could break a boat, like the cyclops, in two.

"There are storms to the south and north, which come together," he told the show.

"And if there are additional Florida ones, it can be a potentially deadly formation of rebel waves."

"They are steep, high, we have measured waves of more than 30 meters.

Scientists in Australia previously said a simple explanation & # 39; behind the phenomena: human error.

Instead of being a region where supernatural or even unusual environmental forces may be at stake, posing a threat to travelers, the Bermuda Triangle has nothing particular about the number of disappearances that it sees. It shows a reward for a yacht that disappeared there in 1974

WHAT IS THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE?

The Bermuda Triangle is a mythical section of the Atlantic Ocean roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, where dozens of ships and planes have disappeared.

Unexplained circumstances surround some of these accidents.

Although a variety of strange theories have been proposed with respect to the Bermuda Triangle, none of them prove that mysterious disappearances occur more frequently there than in other sections of the ocean that have traveled a lot.

Many people navigate the area every day without incident.

Speaking to News.com.au, Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki reiterated what many experts, including the United States Coast Guard and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), have insisted on over the years.

Instead of being a region where supernatural or even unusual environmental forces may be at stake, posing a threat to travelers, he says that the Bermuda Triangle has nothing to do with the number of disappearances he has seen.

"According to Lloyds of London and the US Coast Guard, the number of planes that disappear in the Bermuda Triangle is the same as anywhere in the world in percentages," Kruszelnicki told News.com.au.

"It's near the equator, near a rich part of the world, America, therefore, you have a lot of traffic."

Kruszelnicki points to a historical example: the disappearance of the five American bombers Torpedo Bombers TBM of flight 19 in 1945, followed by the subsequent disappearance of the hydroplane that was sent to find them.

NOAA: THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE IS A MYTH

The US government agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa), said it is likely that bad weather and poor navigation are the culprits of any mishap in the area between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.

Dozens of ships and planes have mysteriously disappeared in the area.

But Noaa said the number of vehicles missing there is no different from anywhere else in the world, and the theory that a mysterious supernatural force is sinking ships and planes is a myth.

"There is no evidence that mysterious disappearances occur more frequently in the Bermuda Triangle than in any other large and busy area of ​​the ocean," the agency said on its website in February.

No evidence of the remains or the crew has been found.

But, despite claims that mysterious circumstances may have been behind this, and other disappearances, Kruszelnicki points out that transcripts on that night's radio show that several junior pilots recommended flying west.

The pilot, Lieutenant Charles Taylor, flew east.

It also points out that the search plane did not disappear, that in fact "it was exploded".

"There was one guy with experience, the rest had no experience," Kruszelnicki told News.com.au, suggesting that the pilot was at fault.

"It was not good weather, there were waves of 15 meters".

Taylor "came in with a hangover, flew unguarded, and had a history of getting lost and leaving his plane twice before," he said.

Over the years, scientists from around the world have offered a similar view on the disappearances observed in the region, also known as the Devil's Triangle.

The US Coast Guard UU He even refers to it as a "mythical geographical area".

"The Coast Guard does not recognize the existence of the so-called Bermuda Triangle as a specific geographical area of ​​danger for ships or aircraft," according to the USCG website.

"In a review of many aircraft and vessel losses in the area over the years, nothing has been discovered that indicates that casualties were the result of anything other than physical causes.

"No extraordinary factors have been identified."

Similarly, NOAA says that the phenomenon in the Bermuda Triangle reflects that in other parts of the world with the same degree of air and maritime traffic.

"The ocean has always been a mysterious place for humans, and when there is bad weather or little navigation, it can be a very lethal place," according to NOAA.

& # 39; This is true all over the world. There is no evidence that mysterious disappearances occur more frequently in the Bermuda Triangle than in any other large and busy area of ​​the ocean. "
