Massive underwater waves have been detected south of New Zealand and baffle scientists.
They are reportedly the size of skyscrapers and can travel for days in the ocean. Creepy!
Hidden entirely within the ocean and hard to detect, these waves can tower hundreds of feet, travel fast and propagat a series of disturbances under the water. Their existence in oceans has been known for more than a century.
They have profound effects on the Earth’s climate and on ocean ecosystems by affecting plankton, influencing large-scale ocean circulation, and perhaps even shaping the continental slopes.
The internal tides normally move in several horizontal directions:
The KIWI mysterious giant waves however is the only one that moves in one direction toward Tasmania. AND This baffles scientists!
But research is underway!
