Scientists, who will start a new research study for blue holes, one of the most mysterious structures in the oceans, will send a reconnaissance vehicle to a blue hole on the US coast.
According to many scientists, we know more about space than we know about oceans. An example of this is that there is more information about black holes than we know about blue holes. Yes, there are relatively mysterious structures called blue holes in the deep seas.
Although the locations of the blue holes are known, it is tough to research here, which is one of the biggest reasons why the properties of blue holes still cannot be revealed. In contrast, a blue hole off the coast of Florida, called the Green Banana, will soon host an extensive research study and provide valuable information about the blue holes.
According to the information provided by the Independent, a comprehensive research study will begin this month on the Green Banana, which is thought to have a depth of about 90 meters. The study will aim to reveal how the blue hole is formed and its properties.
One of the most curious questions of scientists is whether the water in the blue hole is different from ocean water. Since it is known that there is a wide variety of fish and plants in this region, it is highly wondered what is different in the area.
The Green Banana has a very light blue hue compared to its surroundings, and scientists say this hole could be the point where the underground freshwater sources meet the ocean. Scientists are planning to send a considerable discovery vehicle to Green Banana to solve this mystery.
The Green Banana is just one of a group of blue-hole networks connected by holes in the bottom of the ocean floor, according to a theory about research to be funded by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Scientists will be able to answer these theories only when they uncover all the information about Green Banana.
