“Black smokers” – this is the name of the geothermal sources operating at the bottom of the oceans. From these objects, in the form of multi-meter pipes, incredibly hot water under the pressure of several hundred atmospheres enters the oceans.
As a general rule, the “smokers” are located along the axes of the mid-ocean ridges. Scientists stumbled upon the “deposit” of new smokers in an unexpected place. A vast field dotted with geothermal springs has been discovered by American researchers led by Jill McDermott of Lehigh University.
The field formed over an area of more than 5,000 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 gushes out of it – 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 rises from the inner ocean, which is very deep underground, hundreds of kilometers from the surface.
It is not at all excluded that groundwater may one day have become the source of the global flood – the very one described in the Bible.
Lehigh University fears that the activity of “black smokers” precedes the imminent massive eruption of underwater volcanoes. It is possible that the flow from the bowels also indicates that the planet is preparing for another flood.
