What is the Bermuda Triangle: The Bermuda Triangle is an area of the Western North Atlantic for one and a half century, where numerous ships and airplanes supposedly disappear without trace. But a new research from the scientists at Arctic University in Norway takes cues from the multiple giant craters on the floor of the Barents Sea.
Scientists may have solved the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle.
Where is the Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle is a large area of ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda(approx).
The Truth about the Bermuda Triangle
It’s a mystery that has put the fear of God into sailors, and left scientists scratching their heads for years: What causes the Bermuda Triangle to claim so many ships and aircraft.
- One of the most prevalent explanations for the disappearances is underwater bedrock, which allegedly possesses magnetic capabilities that can disable compasses.
- But researchers at the Arctic University of Norway found another aquatic phenomenon that could very well cause ships to sink.
- According news, the team recently came upon giant underwater craters off the coast of Norway measuring roughly half a mile wide and 150 feet deep.
- The craters may have formed through explosions of methane, a natural gas buried within the floor of Barents Sea.
- Scientist believe they may be closer to solving the mystery after the discovery of a serious of craters.
- A massive deposit of methane gas may have exploded in the craters surrounding the seabed caused by gas leaking from oil and gas deposits buried deep in the sea floor.
- In the past two years, scientists have also documented methane gas bubbling up from the seafloor off the some parts of the west and the east coasts of the United States.

One of the topics that need further analysis is whether methane gas explosions on the seabed could threaten the safety of ships.
“Multiple giant craters exist on the sea floor in an area in the west-central Barents Sea … and are probably a cause of enormous blowouts of gas. The crater area is likely to represent one of the largest hotspots for shallow marine methane release in the Arctic.”
Researchers at the Arctic University of Norway say.
Beyond that, the Arctic University of Norway — the supposed source of the revelation –itself quickly jumped in to debunk the tabloids’ spin on its science, in a news release rather emphatically titled Craters in Barents Sea Not Connected to Bermuda Triangle.
Just to make that point more clear, professor Karin Andreassen, one of the researchers, explained: “What I can say is that we are not making any links to the Bermuda Triangle.”
This is not the fist time the possibility of methane gas eruptions in the Bermuda Triangle has been suggested. Last year a group of researchers led by Igor Yelstov of the Trofimuk Institute in Russia said that the mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle were the effects of hydrant gas reactions. When the craters start to actively decompose, methane ice is transformed into gas.
If the theory of methane gas explosions being the cause of so many disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle proves to be correct, then we can chalk one up for science. But would the theory explain the magnetic anomalies associated with the area? It will be interesting to hear.
