“Black smokers” – this is the name of geothermal sources operating at the bottom of the oceans. From these objects, in the form of multi-meter pipes, incredibly hot water under pressure of hundreds of atmospheres enters the oceans.
As a rule, “smokers” are located along the axes of the middle oceanic ridges. Scientists stumbled upon the “deposit” of new ones in an unexpected place. An extensive field dotted with geothermal springs was found by American researchers led by Jill McDermott from Lehigh University.
The field was formed on an area of more than 5 thousand square meters in the northern part of the East Pacific Rise – near the Peruvian coast of South America.
The field has more than 20 “black smokers” about 10 meters high. “Hot” water erupts from them – it comes from some reservoirs located under the ocean floor at a depth of about 2 kilometers.
It is possible that in these hot reservoirs, heated by magma, water is rising from the internal ocean, which is located very deep underground hundreds of kilometers from the surface.
It is not at all excluded that groundwater once became the source of the global flood – the very one that the Bible describes.
Lehigh University fears that the activity of “black smokers” precedes the imminent mass eruption of underwater volcanoes. It is possible that the outflow from the bowels may also indicate that the planet is preparing a new Flood.
