  7. 7. SEA MONSTERS PEOPLE IN ANCIENT TIME USED TO BELIEVED THAT DRAGONS OR SEA – MONSTERS USED TO LIVE UNDER WATER. THIS USED TO DESTROY SHIPS COMING OVER THERE. ALTHOUGH THIS REASON NEVER GAINED MUCH IMPORTANCE AMONG THE PEOPLE & SCIENTISTS ALIKE.

  10. 10. THE HUTCHINSON EFFECT In 1979, John Hutchinson hatched a theory and conducted experiments to prove that electromagnetic fields of different wave lengths can connect with each other, and when this happens, that you should expect the unexpected. In experiments conducted by him, this combination of various electromagnetic fields resulted in some interesting outcomes including objects like metal and wood being able to float, water swirling in a cup, metal melting, mirrors shattering and a host of other unusual phenomenon. However Hutchinson has suggested that if he can create these phenomena in a controlled environment, nature too can do this anywhere and at anytime.
  11. 11. SCIENTIFC EXPLANATIONS : COMPASS VARIATIONS  GULF STREAM  HURRICANES & ROGUE WAVES  METHANE HYDRATES  HUMAN ERROR
  12. 12. COMPASS VARIATIONS  A compass actually points to the magnetic North, while the absolute geographic North is located at Greenland.  The angular gap between the absolute geographic North and the magnetic North is known as the compass variation.  The ‘Bermuda Triangle' is one of the two places on earth that a magnetic compass does point towards true north.  If a ship moves along a specific narrow strip within Bermuda Triangle, the magnetic North and the absolute geographic North come into the same line, i.e. the Compass Variation is ZERO  So accidents or loss can happen all over the world and not just in Bermuda Triangle, if such compass adjustments are not done.
  13. 13. GULF STREAM  The Gulf Stream Is An Ocean Current That Originates In The Gulf Of Mexico And Then Flows Through The Straits Of Florida I nt o The No r t h At l a n t i c .  I n Es s e nc e , I t I s A R i v e r Wi t h i n A n O c e a n , And, Like A River, It Can And Does Carry Floating Objects. It Has A Surface Velocity Of Up To About 2.5 Meters Per Second (5.6 M i /H )
  14. 14. HURRICANE & ROGUE WAVES Hurricanes Are Powerful Storms, Which Form In Tropical Waters And Have Historically Cost Thousands Of Lives Lost And Caused Billions Of Dollars In Damage.. These Storms Have In The Past Caused A Number Of Incidents Related To The Triangle. In various oceans around the world, rogue waves have caused ships to sink and oil platforms to topple. These waves, were considered to be a Mystery and or a Myth….
  15. 15. METHANE HYDRATES Methane Lowers The Density Of Water The Presence Of Methane Hydrates Indicates Enormous Eruptions Of Methane Bubbles That Would Swamp A Ship, And Projected High Into The Air- Take Out Flying Airplanes, As Well. A n o t h e r v a r i a n t i s p o s s i b l e .
