Unexplained Phenomenon

In 1997, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recorded a strange sound in the ocean at 50S; 100W. Strange and LOUD. So loud that it was picked up by two separate microphones 3,000 miles apart. The sound, dubbed "The Bloop," doesn't sound like anything at normal speed. However, the NOAA did us the favor of speeding up the recording to 16 times the normal speed, Scientists determined that its wave pattern indicates it was made by an animal. There is no animal big enough or loud enough to make that kind of noise, not by a long shot. Not a blue whale, not a howler monkey, or a startled teenage girl. What do you think it is? I thought it was cool so I put it up. I read about it on Cracked.com. You can see where it happened on the map part on this video.

    Hydrophones have been used by the Navy since the 40s. Depending on what Hz this "sound" burned off at, I'd say it was simply another secret military test. New tests are being conducted to measure global warming as we speak. The ability of low-frequency sound to travel long distances in the deep ocean can be used to increase the range at which submarines can be detected. In great secrecy during the 1950's, at the height of the cold war with the former Soviet Union, the U.S. Navy launched a project with the code name Jezebel. It would later become known as the SOund SUrveillance System (SOSUS). Arrays of hydrophones were placed on the ocean bottom and connected by underwater cables to processing centers located on shore (See Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS)). The SOSUS system was very successful in detecting and tracking the noisy Soviet submarines of that era. The sailors operating the early SOSUS arrays also detected some sounds whose sources were at first unknown. One particular unknown sound was attributed to the "Jezebel Monster." The sound was later found to be low-frequency blue and fin whale vocalizations.
