Suicide Forest in Japan
Like VICE News? Subscribe to our news channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

Fukushima 2011 Earth Moving - Liquefaction
In geology, liquefaction refers to the process by which saturated, unconsolidated sediments are transformed into a substance that acts like a liquid. Earthquakes can cause soil liquefaction where loosely packed, water-logged sediments come loose from the intense shaking of the earthquake.

Why there's a ring of natural disasters around the Pacific
The belt of volcanic activity is called the Ring of Fire. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The Ring of Fire is a band of volcanoes and frequent earthquakes that runs from New Zealand, up through Eastern Asia, across the Bering Strait and all the way down to the Southern tip of Chile. Volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis appear around the boundaries of the several, fast moving, tectonic plates that make up the region. When the plates collide, they create areas of volatility. The Ring of Fire sees more natural disasters than anywhere else on Earth, but what makes it particularly dangerous is that few countries are prepared. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view. Video journalist Sam Ellis uses maps to tell these stories and chart their effects on foreign policy.

Building Sea City (Engineering Documentary) | Spark
This stylish, lavishly photographed HD documentary follows the team on the ground in Kuwait as they race to beat critical deadlines while the temperature rises to the extremes of mid-summer. There are bridges to finish, water gates to be built and installed, millions of cubic metres of dynamic compaction to be done – literally smashing the ground flat enough to bear the weight of buildings on it – and mangrove plants to nurture at the absolute northern limit of their possible cultivation. All this before new lagoons can be flooded in late 2009, and while the first families are already moving into their new homes alongside the first flooded lagoons. First Broadcast in 2005.

Plate Tectonic Reconstructions of SE Asia
This brief animation illustrates the complex evolution of Southeast Asia during the last 43 million years. The four colored regions represent the four principal plate tectonic domains: Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo and the South China Sea (light blue), the Philippines (dark blue), Australia (cyan), and China & Indochina (green) which is held fixed. The white gaps and slivers between the plates represents ocean floor that has been subducted. From 40 million years to 30 million years, the Philippines and Australia converged on SE Asia. The clockwise rotation of SE Asia during this time period was due to the collision of India with Asia (starting ~50 million years ago). Collision between the Philippines and SE Asia occurred about 25 million years ago. The Philippines, continued moving northward as the South China Sea, Sea of Japan, and Marianas back arc basin opened. Australia arrived at the scene ~15 million years ago. After Australia's collision with SE Asia, parts of northern New Guinea were sliced off and carried westward by the convergence of the Pacific plate. The plate model was built by G. Betrand and C. Scotese, based on the plate tectonic model of C. Rangin et al (1990).

Deep Sea Drilling Vessel CHIKYU  Expedition 314-01
Shingu Port, Japan— Sept. 21, 2007—Today, the Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment (NanTroSEIZE) gets underway, with the Japanese drilling vessel Chikyu departing from Shingu Port with scientists aboard, all ready to log, drill, sample, and install monitoring instrumentation in one of the most active earthquake zones on Earth. The vessel's launch starts the first of a series of scientific drilling expeditions that will retrieve geological samples and provide scientific data from the Nankai Trough fault zone for the first time. Situated off Japan's southwest coast, the Nankai Trough has reliably generated large-scale earthquakes and tsunamis for millions of years, including historic earthquakes in 1944 and 1946, which measured 8.1 and 8.3, respectively, on the Richter scale.

"A 6.9-greatness tremor has been accounted for in Fukushima, Japan, as per the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Tremors from the quake could be felt as far away as Tokyo. Perilous wave waves are feasible for parts of Japan's east drift inside 300 kilometers (around 186 miles) of the quake's epicenter, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. There is no torrent risk to Hawaii." Japan Earthquake has been a dramatic event, hearts and prayers out to japan.

Rivers Under the Sea
April's Shell London lecture, delivered by Jeffery Peakall (University of Leeds) at the Geological Society on 17 April 2013. The modern sea-floor has an abundance of giant channels that can be thousands of miles long, up to several miles wide, and hundreds of metres deep. These submarine channels are the feeder systems and arteries of submarine fans, the largest sedimentary deposits on Earth. Surprisingly these giant ocean-floor channels are perhaps the most poorly known large-scale (up to thousands of miles long) geomorphic feature on the planet. Certainly the channels on Mars, and even Venus, are far more widely recognised! These channels are fed by fast moving particulate-laden flows that are denser than the surrounding seawater and known as turbidity currents. Initiation of these flows can result in small tsunami, and as they travel downslope they can damage sea-floor infrastructure and communications cables; for example they were responsible for a major internet failure in 2006 in the far east. Such submarine channel flows may also play a key role in the carbon cycle through transport and burial of organic material. In addition, the deposits of ancient submarine channels are of increasing importance as hydrocarbon reservoirs, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico and offshore West Africa. Our early models and understanding of these submarine channels were based around comparison with their terrestrial cousins, rivers, yet recent work has highlighted just how dramatically different submarine channels and rivers really are.

The Geological Formation Of Iceland Documentary
It is the largest and most fearsome volcanic island on the planet. We'll scour the island for clues, to address the mystery of what powerful forces are ripping Iceland apart and lighting its fiery volcanoes. Here, lava rips huge tears in the ground and new islands are born from the waves. Yet despite the active volcanoes, Iceland historically has been covered in and carved by ice. Fire and ice collide, locked in a titanic battle, as glaciers explode and cataclysmic floods decimate the landscape. But Iceland's volcanoes have had ramifications far beyond the shores of Iceland, causing climatic chaos and devastation across the planet; a fate which may one day happen again.

How did Japan move 8 feet in the earthquake of March 11, 2011? Tohoku Fukushima Tsunami
The magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011, which occurred near the northeast coast of Honshu, Japan, resulted from thrust faulting on or near the subduction zone plate boundary between the Pacific and North America plates. At the latitude of this earthquake, the Pacific plate moves approximately westwards with respect to the North America plate at a rate of 83 mm/yr, and begins its westward descent beneath Japan at the Japan Trench. Note that some authors divide this region into several microplates that together define the relative motions between the larger Pacific, North America and Eurasia plates; these include the Okhotsk and Amur microplates that are respectively part of North America and Eurasia. The March 11 earthquake was preceded by a series of large foreshocks over the previous two days, beginning on March 9th with a M 7.2 event approximately 40 km from the epicenter of the March 11 earthquake, and continuing with another three earthquakes greater than M 6 on the same day. The Japan Trench subduction zone has hosted nine events of magnitude 7 or greater since 1973. The largest of these, a M 7.8 earthquake approximately 260 km to the north of the March 11 epicenter, caused 3 fatalities and almost 700 injuries in December 1994. In June of 1978, a M 7.7 earthquake 35 km to the southwest of the March 11 epicenter caused 22 fatalities and over 400 injuries. Large offshore earthquakes have occurred in the same subduction zone in 1611, 1896 and 1933 that each produced devastating tsunami waves on the Sanriku coast of Pacific NE Japan. That coastline is particularly vulnerable to tsunami waves because it has many deep coastal embayments that amplify tsunami waves and cause great wave inundations. The M 7.6 subduction earthquake of 1896 created tsunami waves as high 38 m and a reported death toll of 22,000. The M 8.6 earthquake of March 2, 1933 produced tsunami waves as high as 29 m on the Sanriku coast and caused more than 3000 fatalities.

Oldest Pyramid In The World Found Hidden In Java?
in 1917 an amazing report was made in the Indonesian Report of the Department of Antiquities, The Dutch historian N. J. Krom also mentioned it in 1949. Employees of the National Archaeology Research Centre visited the site in 1979 for a study of its archaeology, history, and geology. If the claims are proven accurate, Indonesia possesses the oldest pyramidic structure on the face of tee art, buried under a mound of ancient sediment. Located around 800 metres above sea level, the site covers a hill in a series of terraces bordered by retaining walls of stone, and is covered with massive rectangular stones of volcanic origin. The Sundanese people considered the site sacred and believed it was the result of te legend of King Siliwangi's attempts to build a palace in one night. Based on various dating techniques, the site was completed by 5000 BC and quite likely much earlier. Interestingly Lalakon mountain in Borneo or rather, wat the natives and tourists to the location have known as a mountain for millennia, has also recently been confirmed to actually be an actual ancient pyramid, drill samples from the tops of these mounds have provided carbon dates going as far back as 20 thousand bc, the deeper they drilled the older the carbon dates became, peaking out at a layer of not local basalt at 90 feet, In west java ancient knowledge had successfully been retained, within indigenous communities, they claimed Egyptians landing, and even colonizing Indonesia well before 2000 bc, the evidence for the colonization of Indonesia by the ancient Egyptians is documented by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles in his volume, The History of Java - John Murrey Publishing, London - 1830. Tomb paintings and writings show that the Egyptians were trading down the Red Sea and into the Indian Ocean. Well before 2000 years before Christ. Were these structures actually created by Egyptians? why were they placed where they lay. As I have mentioned before we know an awful lot about the Egyptian civilization allot of it from what they left us in written language scrawled in hieroglyph all over these ancient monuments, we know about mummification processes in detail we know all about their religious rituals of death, yet, alas, not one shred of writing on how they constructed such awe-inspiring tombs in the shape of a pyramid out of millions of tonnes of accurately placed stone. Did the Egyptians just claim these structures as their own, as an illusionary appearance of power? A drought killed the ancient Egyptians, yet there supposed sphinxes sow evidence of submersion, and thousands of years of heavy rainfall, tis points a logical finger at an earlier creation date. With modern technologies, testing equipment, penetrating radar, and the internet, it appears the truth of who we really and who our ancestors were, may be revealed.

5 S. Korean islands in West Sea home to rich geological heritage
서해 5도는 '10억 년 지질유산 보물섬' Five West Sea islands administrated by Korea are home to unique geological formations created one billion years ago. These islands are in the limelight as candidates for national geoparks. Park Se-young has more. This rock formation named 'Dumujin' on Baekryongdo Island is a result of sandy sediments being heated and pressured a billion years ago. The island is also home to basaltic rocks, …which have weathered and turned yellow due to their high magnesium content. The Kongdol seashore is covered by round pebbles, formed by the break-down of quartzite in the soil. Sagot Beach was once used as a natural airstrip due to the hardness of the sand. And Socheongdo Island, where Korea's oldest fossils have been found, is home to the Bunbawi Rock, named for its white, chalky color. The different layers and wave patterns of rocks at Nongyeo Beach provide a window back through one billion years of history. The Seopungbaji Rock in Daecheongdo Island was named as such because it blocks the wind that blows from China to the West Sea. "Baekryongdo, Daecheongdo and Socheongdo islands are not widely known for their rich geological heritage. We will work towards sustainable development by getting them certified as national geoparks in July." Ten sights on the five islands will also apply to become UNESCO Global Geopark sites.

NHK Great Nature 2013 Land of Fire Mountains Java Indonesia
Documentary hosted by Peter Venn, published by NHK broadcasted as part of NHK Great Nature series in 2013 - English narration. The island of Java in Indonesia lies above four tectonic plates: the Eurasian, Pacific, Australian, and Philippine Sea plates. This mighty convergence gives rise to one of the most volcanically active places on earth. When the volcanic island of Krakatau last erupted in the late 19th century, it sent shockwaves seven and a half times around the earth. Marvel at glorious footage close to the mouth of this mighty volcano and witness Ijen volcano emit an unearthly blue flame in the dark night as its magma rises close to the earth's surface. Here, the mysteries of this Land of Fire Mountains are revealed.
The Year the Earth Went Wild - Natural Disasters
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... From afar the Earth seems calm, a blue sphere turning peacefully in space, but travel closer and you find a turbulent and terrifying place. An atmosphere where hurricanes and tornados are spawned, and below that a realm of volcanos and earthquakes. Starting just before New Year's Day, on Boxing Day 2004, the year 2005 was the most disastrous on record, with hundreds of billions of pounds of losses and more than half a million deaths. This programme covers the litany of planetary catastrophes, from the extraordinary Boxing Day killer tsunami in the Indian Ocean, through the great Kashmir earthquake to Hurricane Katrina and the devastation it wrought on New Orleans, along with UK events, such as the Birmingham tornado, which reached the highest tornado category, yet miraculously killed no-one. 2005 saw an onslaught of epic-scale climate and geological events across the world, all caught on camera in the most spectacular fashion by professionals and amateurs alike. Using eye-witness footage, interviews with survivors and rescuers and analysis from geological and weather specialists, this documentary charts the incredible natural events of a year where almost every month was affected by a natural disaster. At that time it was the hottest year on record, and the stormiest, people on every continent were affected in some way by the year’s disasters. World leading scientists and climatologists speculate whether the events have been triggered by a real shift in the earth's climatic systems. Some of the natural disasters covered in this documentary : Indian Ocean Earthquake and Asian Tsunami The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred on 26th December with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The earthquake was caused when the Indian Plate was subducted by the Burma Plate and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing over 230,000 people in fourteen countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 metres high. Maharashtra Floods The 2005 Maharashtra floods refers to the flooding of many parts of the Indian state of Maharashtra including large areas of the metropolis Mumbai a city located on the coast of the Arabian Sea, on the western coast of India, in which at least 5,000 people died. Birmingham Tornado The Birmingham tornado was one of the strongest tornadoes recorded in the United Kingdom in nearly 30 years, occurring on 28th July 2005 in the suburbs of Birmingham. The tornado uprooted an estimated 1,000 trees, removed the roofs of buildings, picked up and deposited cars and caused other damage during its short existence. European Floods The 2005 European floods hit mainly Romania, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, as well as several other countries in Central Europe and Eastern Europe during August. The disaster came at a time when Portugal was suffering from intense forest fires which left 15 dead. Hurricane Katrina Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic tropical cyclone of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It is the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. At least 1,833 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods. The most significant number of deaths occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana, which flooded as the levee system catastrophically failed. Kashmir Earthquake The Kashmir earthquake occurred on 8th October 2005 and was centred in the Pakistan administered Kashmir near the city of Muzaffarabad, and also affected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It registered a moment magnitude of 7.6. The government of Pakistan's official death toll was 75,000. The severity of the damage caused by the earthquake is attributed to severe upthrust, coupled with poor construction.

Top 10 Sinkholes Caught Swallowing Things On An EPIC Scale
When nature strikes to swallow the earth and create the largest vast holes, you better be prepared! Here are the top ten times the Earth swallowed things on an epic scale. Subscribe for more! ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedSubscribe ◄ Stay updated ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedFacebook https://twitter.com/BeAmazedVideos https://instagram.com/BeAmazedVideos ◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: [email protected] Credit: https://pastebin.com/QP3VBW1L Be Amazed at these top 10 largest sinkholes that swallowed the earth! Batakaiga Crater - Located in the East Siberian taiga, the Batakaiga crater is a land depression of epic proportions; a kilometre long gash in the land that is 100 meters deep. "The Grandfather" Sinkhole - Sinkholes tend to appear more frequently in mining towns, as mining activities weaken the soil. This is what happened in the town of Berezniki — a mining town where the "The Grandfather" sinkhole appeared; a massive sinkhole that continues to grow every single year. The Great Blue Hole - Sinkholes often swallow the ground and everything beneath it. Though very rarely, sinkholes also emerge underwater, filling itself with water, inadvertently creating a natural wonder. Dead Sea Sinkholes - The Dead Sea is on the verge of dying. It continues to shrink as its water level drops at least a metre per year. Florida Sinkholes - If you live in Florida, you'll have to contend with the fact that you'll be living with sinkholes for the rest of your stay. Fukuoka, Japan Sinkhole - Like Florida, Japan is no stranger to geological disasters, as its residents experience over 1,500 earthquakes per year. So when a sinkhole appeared in Fukuoka back in 2016, local authorities quickly sprung into action to alleviate its citizens' worries. Queensland Beach Sinkhole - When it comes to relaxation, nothing beats visiting a beach. But for some unlucky campers, visiting a beach may not be the best of ideas. Guatemala Sinkhole - Back in 2010, tropical storm Agatha wreaked havoc on most parts of Central America, including Guatemala. Xiaozhai Tiankeng - While sinkholes are often frightening, this massive sinkhole in China is a sight to behold. Nicknamed by locals the "Heavenly Pit", it measures 662 metres deep and 527 metres wide. This giant sinkhole, or "tiankeng" as it is called in China, was formed over 10,000 years ago, after layers of limestone eroded by centuries' worth of rain, collapsing the ancient caves and forming this amazing sight. Millennium Tower Subsidence - The Millennium Tower in San Francisco, California is currently facing two interconnected problems: one, its currently the subject of multiple lawsuits from its residents, and two - the reason these lawsuits have been filed - the building is slowly sinking and tilting, potentially endangering the lives of every resident.

Geology of Atlantis - Comparison with Philippines
Remember to subscribe! ↓↓↓ More info and sources below ↓↓↓ Though we do not have direct proof that Atlantis existed, there is a growing body of evidence that Plato's Atlantis may have been real. This evidence is discussed in greater detail at, https://MissionAtlantis.wordpress.com/ https://AtlantisQuestScience.wordpress.com/ Some of the most intriguing evidence can be found in the Plato Coincidence Series, https://missionatlantis.wordpress.com/category/plato-coincidence-series/ Transcription: Hello, my name is Rod Martin, and this is Cebu Island. I'm standing in the center of the Philippines, an archipelago of over 7,000 islands. Humans have lived in these islands for at least 24,000 years. Each of these islands is the result of millions of years of movement of tectonic plates, one against another — the Philippine Sea plate sliding underneath the Sunda plate. There is a great deal about the Philippines which is similar to the mythical Atlantis. According to the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, Atlantis sank in a day and a night nearly 12,000 years ago. Was Atlantis a real place? We don't know, yet, but there is mounting evidence in support of that possibility. Thankfully, there are some critical differences between Atlantis and the Philippines. And that's what this film is about. The ancient Greek philosopher, Plato was one of the founders of western philosophy. He is our source for the Atlantis story. Half a world away, the Philippines are a group of islands created by the movement of the Philippine Sea plate underneath the Sunda plate, forming islands in what would otherwise be empty ocean. Part of mountain building comes from the friction between two plates — each made of millions of tons of rock — when the two plates rub against one another. Also, the descending plate heats up as it moves downward into the Earth's mantle. This melts the old crust and gives rise to volcanoes. Today, the Philippines are largely volcanic in origin. Atlantis was created much the same way. Over millions of years, as the Africa plate moved northward to meet the Eurasia, the Africa plate slid underneath the Eurasia, creating mountains and volcanoes. But first, where was Atlantis? Plato was quite specific. The fabled island, if it existed at all, stood outside the Strait of Gibraltar and faced the territory known in Plato's time as the Phoenician Gadira, modern Cádiz, Spain (the oldest European city on the Atlantic coast). The island was the size of ancient Libya and Asia Minor combined. Because of this size, it likely stretched to the Azores volcanic archipelago. Nearly 200 million years ago, as the ancient super-continent Pangaea broke up, Africa moved northward to meet Eurasia. As the Africa continent moved, the periphery of the Africa plate slid underneath the Eurasia, creating mountains in the process. Perhaps 50-60 million years ago, mountain building got a boost. Something happened along the Africa-Eurasia plate boundary in the Atlantic causing the Eurasia to choke on the Africa plate. Perhaps as much as 100% of Africa's northward movement locally was converted into mountain building. Then, when the region of mountainous terrain (a new island) reached its maximum height, Africa was no longer able to move northward at this new island. The result of this impasse set in motion the future demise of Atlantis. But now, what happens when one object collides with another, but the collision is not head-on?...

13 Bizarre Discoveries In Alaska
Alaska still holds many archaeological wonders like the petroglyph beach and the discovery of strange fossils of an ancient sea animal Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 8 New Butterfly Species In March 2016, a scientist accidentally discovered a new undocumented species of butterfly native to Alaska. Andrew Warren, a butterfly expert, was organizing a museum’s butterfly collection when he noticed one butterfly was seemingly mislabeled as a variation of the Chryxus Arctic butterfly - when actually it was a whole new species altogether. The Tanana Arctic is the new name of this species of butterfly - which evolved when two other species intermingled until their hybrid offspring became distinct enough to become their own breed. Because of this new discovery, little is known about them except that they make their home in the harsh and cold environment of Alaska. # 7 Cremated Child Excavators in an Alaskan archaeological dig found something that unnerved them to their core. The archeologists in Central Alaska uncovered the cremated remains of a 3 year old child who died almost 11,500 years ago. The child’s burned bone remains were found in the center of an ancient house, a place that served as their home while they were alive and their graveyard when they died. # 6 Ice Age Babies Surrounded by Weapons A similar and mysterious archaeological find was discovered incredibly close to the cremated 3 year old child. Buried just a few centimeters below the cremated remains, the remains of two infants were found. The two would be aged anywhere between a few days to a few weeks. The children were surrounded by an array of ancient weapons like spears and sharpened rock tips, a set-up that would have been considered a very lavish funeral. Why the two babies weren’t cremated while the older one was is a mystery. The reason for such an intricate burial ceremony of any of these children remains equally shrouded in mystery. # 5 Lady of the Lake The Lady of the Lake is a mysterious site just a few miles of a city called North Pole, Alaska. It’s the name of a WB-Superfortress plane that is half sunken into a lake. The ominous looking abandoned aircraft has a history of being used as a recon plane during World War II, but the exact reason for it’s new home at the bottom of a shallow lake is unclear. It makes for an intimidating discovery for anyone who happens to find it. # 4 Petroglyph Beach A rocky beach in Juneau, Alaska has a rare archaeological find that only reveals itself at low tide. Over 40 different rock sketches decorate the rocks on the coast, depicting things like salmon, whales, human faces, and a community. It is one of the oldest concentration of ancient drawings in the world, and it’s incredibly hard to piece together the true meaning of the disappearing petroglyphs as they are slowly being washed away by the ocean. # 3 Pre-American Trade Archaeologists discovered a collection of prehistoric bronze relics in Northwestern Alaska, at a time when the people of Alaska were not yet capable of making their own bronze. The artifacts were made in Mongolia, Korea, China and Japan, other finds seem to originate from places in Russia. These artifacts prove the existence of intercontinental trade and cultural exchange in Alaskan way before Columbus arrived in the Americas. # 2 Igloo City A strange monument exists 120 miles north of Anchorage - a giant abandoned igloo. The building, once called Igloo City, was first built in the 1970s and was meant to be a novelty hotel for tourists. The building could never meet construction codes and soon it became too expensive to keep trying to build it and just as expensive to tear it down. Several other owners came to the property throughout the decades but none could get the cursed building to meet regulations. Soon it was abandoned to the Alaskan elements and has now become a strange landmark for adventurers to check out. # 1 “Buzz saw” shark An Alaskan Geology student named Richard Glenn found an oddly shaped rock while mapping geological formations in the Brooks Range of Northern Alaska. The rock was a spiral shape, similar to a fossil of a shell someone might find. The difference? This spiral shape was dotted with 100s of teeth. After a long journey from Alaska to the Smithsonian and back, the spiral set of teeth was identified as the jaw from a Helicoprion, an extinct shark also known as the Buzz saw shark. Fossils from the buzz saw shark are rare, as all of their insides were made of cartilage that wouldn’t survive fossilization. The buzz-saw shark is known for its mysterious coil of teeth that don’t seem to belong on a predator. They are also native to the Atlantic ocean, so how that fossil ended up in a mountain range in the arctic is another layer of mystery to this rare discovery.

Underworld - Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age I
Plato's Story of Atlantis In 360 BC, the famous Greek philosopher Plato wrote about a battle between his city Athens and a great empire named Atlantis. He described this war, which ended when Atlantis disappeared in the ocean due to "violent earthquakes and floods," in two of his books: "Timaeus" and "Critias" (https://sites.google.com/site/11000vchr/plato-s-kritias). According to Plato, all this happened 9,000 years before his time which would be at least 9,400 BC, some 12,400 years ago. Intriguingly, this also corresponds to the period when the geological age of the Younger Dryas suddenly ended with an abrupt warming of more than 10°C in only a few years. This event marked the beginning of the Holocene, the era in which we are still living today. Sea levels must have risen rapidly and dramatically, and as a result entire civilizations, if any existed, would have disappeared under water. It's still unclear what caused the extreme climate change that ended the Younger Dryas around 9,700 BC, although some evidence seems to point to solar activity. Whether Atlantis really existed is hard to say. In that time, sealevels were at least 80 to 100 meters lower than today. Therefore, if there were any archeological evidence, one would have to look deep in the bottom of the sea, but nothing has been found sofar. Plato's main concern was probably with illustrating his political views rather than being historically accurate. He was very much opposed to Athen's new democracy and held the opinion that it would inevitably lead to dictatorship and tyranny. Indeed, Atlantis owed its greatness, according to Plato, to the oligarchy that happened to govern the city-empire exactly the way he propagated in his work “The Republic.” Moreover, only the first 20 pages of Plato's narrative have been preserved. It remains remarkable though, how Plato's story reflects climatic events and other facts of which he could not have had any direct knowledge. For instance, he explains how in ancient times, the higher and less fertile areas were inhabited by primitive pastoral peoples, while the more advanced civilizations lived in the coastal regions, which is why they could escape the catastrophic rise in sea levels that struck the coastal regions and destroyed everything that lived there. Plato tells us that only the Egyptian culture was saved from this due to its special location further inland in the Nile valley. Other intriguing issues, such as the frequent use of “orichalcum” in Atlantis, are mentioned in the “Critias” as well. This mysterious metal is very reminiscent of tumbaga, an alloy of gold and copper in varying proportions which was much used by the Inca and other peoples in the New World. This, however, became known only 2,000 years later after Columbus discovered America. Plato wasn't the first to mention Atlantis as it is often believed. In Herodotus' time, the sea outside Gibraltar was on occasion called the Atlantis Sea. In the Great Hall of the temple of Ramses at Karnak a column shows a depiction of a great festival, along with an accompanying text memorializing “the loss of a drowned continent in the Western Ocean.” Plato described Atlantis as being ruled by ten kings and Egyptian king-lists going back thousands of years before Plato also talk of ten god-kings called “Atlanteans.” The Sanskrit writings of ancient India contain several descriptions of Atlantis, and even assert that Atlantis was destroyed as the result of a war between the gods and Asuras (giant and sometimes demonic creatures). The Vishnu Purana, one of the oldest of the Hindu Puranas, speaks of "Atala, the White Island," one of the seven islands belonging to Patala. The Mahabharata also refers to "Atala, the White Island," which is described as an "island of great splendour." Megalithic structures like the Sphynx in Egypt, Göbekli Tepe in Turkey and maybe even Yonaguni in Japan that were build more than 10.000 years ago, point to the existence of advanced cultures in ancient times. But wether Atlantis is more than just a myth, and where it was located, remains a mystery. (2014) Created in 2002 by Graham Hancock.

This storm could have potentially saved the entire country of Japan from all out destruction. Archaeologists believe they may have uncovered some of the remains of the fleet Kublai Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan used in his attempted invasion. With 4000 ships and 140,000 men, you’d believe that it should be possible to come across some of the wreckage. 5. Pirate Shipwreck, Tonga A shipwreck near the Pacific country of Tonga was discovered in 2012 and underwater archaeologists believe it could possibly be the ruins of the famous pirate vessel known as the Port Au Prince. This ship was originally French but was captured by the British and made into a pirate boat, looting boats belonging to rival countries such as Spain and France. Here in this photo, you see an illustration of the similar style the Port-Au-Prince would have had. This boat was made famous for destroying some Spanish settlements in Peru as well as their ships. Some believe the boat was destroyed by Tongan natives and used the metal from the ship to make weapons. If the Tongans did take control of the ship, they would have certainly massacred any British sailors on site. 4. Queen Anne’s Revenge The infamous Blackbeard’s pirate ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, was discovered on a sandbar near Beaufort, North Carolina and is possibly the best pirate ship discovery of all time! Blackbeard and his crew terrorized anyone they came into contact with and plundered many ships, villages in the early 1700’s. This was a former slave ship used by the French, to help colonize the Caribbean. Blackbeard struck fear into the hearts of many with his gruesome flag. One cannon you see in this photo, weighed an astonishing 3000 pounds. This would have fired devastating 6 pound cannon balls and would have ripped enemy boats to shreds. Some other artifacts archaeologists came across include gold dust, coins, glass beads, and 22 cannons and some 280,000 artifacts were uncovered! This anchor they lifted off the sea bed weighs nearly 3,000 pounds! Blackbeard met davy jones locker in a gruesome fashion when the British Navy finally captured him. It’s believed that Blackbeard’s severed head was left to hang from the bow of Lieutenant Robert Maynard’s Ship. 3. Antikythera Shipwreck Off the coast of the Greek Island of Antikythera, a massive storm 2000 years ago caused a large ship to sink. On board were many luxurious items including fine glassware, massive statues, and the most notable item, a complex geared device many believe to be the world’s first computer. This ship and it’s wreckage was discovered by Greek sponge divers in the year 1900 but they seem to keep on finding new things here! Just recently in September 2016, fragments of a human skeleton were found. Buried beneath shards of ancient pottery, they came across this piece of a jaw bone which included 3 teeth. They also found this piece of cranial bone in the Aegean sea. This is the first time researchers came across bones at the site and they're hoping with DNA testing, they can learn more about the crew that was on board this historic ship. 2. German U-boat The German U-boat submarines were certainly a force to be reckoned with during World War II and they wreaked havoc among merchant ships. But how close were the Nazi from the American mainland? Recently, a Nazi U-boat was uncovered only 30 miles off the coast of North Carolina! Maybe we weren’t as safe on our home soil as we might have thought. Many American’s picture the fronts of World War II all the way in Europe or on the other side of the Pacific. This tends to prove otherwise, considering how close it was to us. This vessel was believed to have been shot down in battle with the 44 sailors still entombed inside. This discovery was made using sonar and you can still even see the propeller at the back is still intact! 1.Titanic Discovered A group of American and French researchers finally found the remains of the infamous Titanic in the Northern Atlantic, south of Newfoundland. With help from undersea robotics, the team was able to verify that the ship was truly the Titanic, which struck an iceberg over a century ago. The ship was supposed to be unsinkable but tragedy struck and more than 1500 people lost their lives. The ship is located 12,500 feet below the surface of the ocean which is about 2.4 miles! So getting down here was certainly no easy task. New ghostly images were released and tell the true story of the legendary catastrophe.

Exploring the Deep 1 | Life under the Sea
Heiko Sahling is a biologist and deep sea geoscientist at the MARUM Research Center. The area he studies is in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Pakistan. There, at depths down to 3,000 meters, something fascinating is happening. Natural gas is emerging from the sea bed, to produce a surreal world of millions of tiny bubbles, which has already spurred the fancy of science fiction authors. In these exotic surroundings, the scientist has discovered both new animal species and communities and new geological truths. But the main questions that drive him are concerned with the methane gas emitted here. How much is emitted, how does it affect the biological world of the deep sea, and how much reaches the surface to enter the atmosphere? That is also relevant to climate researchers, because methane is a major greenhouse gas that increases global warming. Heiko Sahling takes Tomorrow Today viewers on an expedition on the METEOR research vessel. He tells us about life on board, about burning ice and about organisms that no one has seen before.

South Atlantic Digital Geological Atlas - South Atlantic Opening
South Atlantic opening - Ages are shown in red in millions of years. Hello this is Ian Davison from Earthmoves Ltd. www.earthmoves.co.uk This sample short video shows a new 4D restoration of South Atlantic opening produced in conjunction with Colin Reeves of Earthworks. The movie is constructed using arc view files imported into Atlas Software developed by Alan Smith Cambridge University. The initial starting configuration shows a close fit of the two restored continental margins which are put back to their original pre-extension position, using area balancing of complete crustal sections. The blue line following the Benue rift and other rifts in Africa is a plate boundary so that NW Africa is allowed to move independently from the rest of Africa. 150 The first events to affect the south Atlantic are the development of a sag basin in latest Jurassic times in Gabon and NE Brazil shown in olive-yellow, and N-S opening of the Argentinian rifts shown in light blue. 147 The next major event is the impingement of the Parana-Etendeka plume 139-130. , the outline of onshore igneous outcrops is shown in the hachured purple area. This outline indicates there was almost as much magmatism in Africa as there was in Brazil, and there is a good match of the two volcanic envelopes across the future Atlantic Ocean. However, most of the African volcanics are interpreted to have been eroded, and a larger proportion of volcanics was preserved on the S. American margin shown as the light purple area.132 130-125 The main south Atlantic rifting occurred in the Barremian with a pole of rotation situated in NE Brazil. The Gabon-Sergipe-Alagoas margin was a transform margin during this time and underwent approximately 200 km of left lateral shear. 125-118 This was followed by E-W extension which commenced about 118 M Yr ago with a pole of rotation which jumped farther north by several hundred kilometres. The pink salt basin is shown developing at approximately 118 Ma, although some localised salt basins probably developed before this time in Angola and shallow Sergipe-Alagoas Basins. POINT TO OUTER SANTOS BASIN The outer part of the Santos Salt Basin overlaps onto the African Continent which probably indicates that this salt developed slightly later when there was more space created by spreading. 125-115 By 115 Ma Africa and Brazil were widely separated with ocean spreading filled the gap shown in white between the two salt basins. This probably explains why the later salts in Gabon and Congo and Sergipe-Alagoas, are unusual Mg-K rich-salts which developed in sea water strongly affected by hydrothermal alteration of oceanic basalts. as it goes The Walvis Ridge-Rio Grande Rise v shaped pattern of purple volcanics is shown developing as both Africa and South America drift northward in reference to the fixed hotspot location of Tristan de Cunha which appears as the dark red spot in the last 50 Myr of the movie. The last part of the restoration shows the various major deltas developing as orangey-brown areas. Clients detailed proprietory data from single basins can be integrated into this software and tailor-made movies created. For further information on the digital atlas and report which were used to create this movie, please contact Ian Davison.
