• tomorrow today | Manganese nodules

    The seabeds of the worlds oceans are rich in raw materials such as diamonds, rare minerals and manganese nodules. They look like small potatoes but they contain metals such as nickel, cobalt and copper, and small amounts of rare metals like molybdenum, selenium and tellurium, which are used in the construction of electronics components.The hunt to recover the precious metals from the seabed has begun. German geologists recently carried out an extended research project in the Pacific. They wanted to find out how many manganese nodules there are, and where they are scattered. 24 million tons of precious metals are believed to be lying under the worlds oceans. The German geologists are trying to learn whether the nodules could be recovered from the seabed without damaging the environment, and...

  • Deep Sea Ocean Mining - HUGHES GLOMAR EXPLORER Project Azorian 21050

    This historic film shows techniques used to conduct deep ocean mining of the sea floor, which were pioneered in the 1960s. The potential for this type of mining (particularly of manganese nodules) was never fully realized. Ironically, the program did end up providing the cover for the USNS Hughes Glomar Explorer (T-AG-193), a deep-sea drillship platform built for the United States Central Intelligence Agency Special Activities Division secret operation Project Azorian to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129, lost in April 1968. Hughes Glomar Explorer (HGE), as the ship was called at the time, was built between 1973 and 1974, by Sun Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. for more than US$350 million at the direction of Howard Hughes for use by his company, Global Marine Development Inc.[4] This ...

    At a depth of 4290 metres near Necker Island, Hawaii, researchers filmed a ghostlike deep-sea octopus. At more than 4000 metres in the Peru Basin, in the south-eastern Pacific Ocean, more specimens or similar octopuses were guarding their eggs. The octopuses deposit their eggs onto sponges that only grow locally on manganese nodules and the industrial extraction of these resources might cause the collapse of the community of animals in the deep sea.

    Deep sea exploration is viewed by marine scientists as one of the greatest scientific challenges of the future. This gigantic research area is a little known world. A mere one percent of this habitat has been explored to date. In collaboration with the MARUM Research Center in Bremen,Tomorrow Today's five-part series presents a fascinating glimpse into the work of marine researchers. The MARUM scientist Wolfgang Bach researches one of the most remarkable structures in the deep sea. The professor at Bremen University studies the hydrothermal vents called black smokers. Some of these chimney-like hot water springs on the sea bed are formed in the mid-Atlantic,in an area known as the Logatchev Field where tectonic plates are moving apart and a new ocean floor is emerging from below.

Hughes told the media that the ship's purpose was to extract manganese nodules from the ocean floor. This marine geology cover story became surprisingly influential, spurring many others to examine the idea. But in sworn testimony in United States district court proceedings and in appearances before government agencies, Global Marine executives and others associated with Hughes Glomar Explorer project unanimously maintained that the ship could not be used in any economically viable ocean mineral operation.

From bizarre fish found in the Mariana Trench to deep sea mystery of one of the oldest fish on earth, these are 10 WEIRD sea discoveries ! Underwater River -- Known as the Cenote (say-no-tay) Angelita Cave, this so-called underwater river can only be accessed by skilled divers. It’s located on the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and was formed over 6500 years ago, after a Manganese (manga-knees) Balls -- In 2015, scientists exploring the Atlantic Ocean were surprised to discover a huge patch of metal balls, some as small as golf balls, with others approximately the size of bowling balls. Turns out the metal balls are actually nodules made of manganese, and are commonly found in the Pacific, not the Atlantic. Scientists noted another difference … the nodules found in the Pacific usually have a flatter shape, while the ones from the Atlantic were very circular. Found at depths of 18000 feet, the nodules are thought to be 10 million years old … but their origin remains a mystery. The Churro Worm -- Four new species of an undersea creature were found 12000 feet underwater off the California coast. Called Xenoturbella (zen-ott-er-bella), they are fuschia colored flatworm-like creatures found on a whale carcass as well as on hydrothermal vents. One of the new species was christened ‘Xenoturbella Churro’, due to its resemblance to the Spanish fried-dough pastry. The four-inch long animal may have another claim to fame: It, along with its fellow species, could be related to us. In 2003, scientists at Cambridge claimed that Xenoturbella might share DNA with humans. Benthic (ben-tik) Comb Jelly -- Found within Japan’s Ryukyu (ree-you-kyou) Trench at an incredible depth of over 23,000 feet (7200 meters), this is the deepest dwelling known ctenophore (ten-uh-fur). The gelatinous organism can measure up to 8 cm wide and up to 20 cm long, and can attach itself to the ocean floor using two long filaments. Prior to its discovery in 2002, many scientists didn’t think it was possible for similar life forms to exist at such extreme depths, because food resources would be so scarce. The very existence of this animal suggests that there’s still much of the region’s ecosystem that remains unknown. Grand Underwater Canyon -- Named Zhemchug (gem-kug) Canyon, this huge underwater formation is located in the middle of the Bering Sea. Also defined as a submarine canyon, or a steep sided valley carved into the sea floor of the continental shelf, Zhemchug (gem-kug) is the largest such formation in the world … and reaching a depth of 8530 ft (2.6 km), it’s deeper than the Grand Canyon, with its deepest point being 6000 feet. The underwater canyon provides an important habitat to a wide range of ocean wildlife, including the Northern Fur Seal and many species of whale. Deep Diving Fish -- In 2010, marine biologists discovered a new type of snailfish almost 23,000 feet deep in the southeast Pacific Ocean. That’s nearly 4.5 miles below the ocean’s surface! In addition, groups of large crustacean scavengers and eels were found in the Peru-Chile trench of the ocean, which runs over 3600 miles and can reach depths of 26,000 feet. One of the deepest locations on earth, the area was previously thought to be completely free of fish. These discoveries might indicate there are thousands more unknown marine animals existing at extreme depths in the world’s oceans. In fact, a new species of snailfish was discovered in 2014 at a depth of over 26,000 feet by researchers using a remote operated vehicle while exploring the Mariana Trench in the Pacific. The Greater Barrier Reef -- The eastern coast of Australia is famous for the Great Barrier Reef … but now there may be a bigger, more spectacular reef on the south coast of the country. Take a look at some of these stunning pictures, and you can understand the excitement. Using a remote operated vehicle, researchers in 2015 explored depths up to 100 meters at Wilsons Promontory National Park in Victoria, Australia. Boulders the size of houses, and spectacular sponge gardens were some of the discoveries made ... along with coral fans and huge sea whips. Among the abundant fish species encountered were Australian barracudas, Longsnout Boarfish, and large schools of deep sea perch, known to grow over 2.5 feet long (80 cm). Park officials planned to analyze more footage to determine areas that might be safest for scuba divers.

Further development of undersea volcanic outgasing. WIP. Best viewed in a darkened room. Basis for sim and shade/Light: As hot and dark fluid is escaping into the water bottom, it parboils water forming microcavitation, which gives the mixed fluid slightly gray color. Surrounding gas hydrates and manganese form nodules around the vent. All work done in Houdini 12.5.371 , and rendered with Mantra. Hydrate nodules and surface crust are procedurally generated (via VOPSOP),and rendered with displacement. Volume shading is fluid in a fluid. Gasventing was simulated using Houdini's Pyro solver in DOPs. Shader was BillowSmoke volume SHOP. Water volume is a VolumeCloud SHOP. Trivia: Mining deep water manganese nodules and other vent gas hydrates , formed a key part of a 'legend", by CIA and Hughes Corp, for Project Azorian.

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com Ever since they were discovered in 1873, scientists have been trying to find out the origin of the millions of potato-sized metal balls that carpet the world's oceans. Known as manganese nodules, these lumps contain valuable metals that scientists someday hope to harvest from the sea floor. Now German scientists could be closer to solving the mystery of their origin after stumbling on the largest patch of manganese nodules ever found in the Atlantic.

Which of these discoveries do you find the most incredible? Let us know in the comments below and subscribe to our channel for more amazing videos just like this, thanks for watching. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 9 - Underwater ExplorerGoing over to Israel, divers discovered a water well that is thought to be around 7500-years old, along with a Neolithic village. It’s believed that the location of this well was possibly the site of the world’s oldest olive oil production centre. Around this site, they also discovered thousands of crushed olive stones, which led them to make that assumption. 8 - Get your dose of Vitamin Sea… Mark Holley is the person to credit for discovering an underwater structure that very closely resembles Stonehenge. He, along with his colleague Brian Abbot, were out on a ship with sonar equipment. They spotted an odd formation in the water. This was on Lake Michigan, and all the structures are said to be the same distance apart and are quite similar to structures found in France and England, making people doubt that they are a natural formation. Research is still being conducted. 7 - Under the sea… This discovery has been astounding for scientists, and has seen the most amazing images emerge from their super find. It’s a river under the sea, which was found on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. It’s called the Cenote Angelita, translated to Little Angel – and you see a winding river and even branches! The river is actually hydrogen sulphide, a gas created by the mixture of salt and fresh water. Only exceptionally skilled divers are able to get there, so thank goodness for excellent underwater cameras! 6 - Just Add Water… In 2014, a group of divers made an incredible discovery. Whilst they were diving off the coast of Goza island in Malta, they came up a Phoenician shipwreck which is thought to date back to 700 BC. This is one of the oldest ships recovered, and there are so many pieces in tact – which will be highly beneficial in in shedding light on life back then. Part of the relics discovered include 20 lava grinding stones, large wine jugs and other pieces of crockery. 5 - The ocean is full of surprises… These alien looking balls have been found on the ocean floor, and are baffling scientists. They are manganese rocks, and they contain valuable metal. They were found in the Atlantic Ocean, and their purpose has been confusing people since the 1870’s! Some suggest it’s a chemical reaction between bacteria and the water. They’re called manganese nodules, and German scientists have discovered a vast amount of them. They grow between 1 and 5 mm every million years, so some are thought to be 10 million years old! 4 - The gap widens… Divers have been instrumental in showing us how the North American Plate is pulling away from the Eurasian Plate – which means the gap between Europe and the USA is widening! In order for you to dive there yourself, you would need to take a trip to Iceland! 3 - So much to discover… According to some sites, we have only scratched the bottom of the surface of the ocean, and still have about 95% of the ocean to still discover. If that’s the case, imagine what is still out there for us to find! Over in New Jersey, archaeologists found 2 beautifully preserved locomotives dating back to the 1850’s. No record of when the trains were built or when they were lost, and to this day – no one can explain how they got there. 2 - My heads under water… It was back in 2000 that French archaeologist, Franck Goddio discovered Heracleion. It’s an underwater city based near Alexandria in Egypt, and during the 13 years spent excavating the area – many incredible items have resurfaced. The city dates back to the 12th century, and it went through a stage of extreme wealth. It’s thought to have sunk due to earthquakes, and had been buried for centuries. Some of the items discovered included 60 ships, gold coins, bronze and stone weights, statues, stone with Greek and Egyptian inscription and hundreds of anchors. 1 - Sink or swim… These are called Ice Fingers, and as you can guess – they’re a totally rare phenomenon which occurs in the Arctic and Antarctic. They’re the result of cold, sinking brine which is heavier than the water surrounding it. It goes on to form a brinicle, which is a hollow icicle, when it comes into contact with the warmer water. It’s been dubbed the ice finger of death, because any sea creature caught in the expanding web of ice, are caught for good and end up freezing to death. The BBC One series, Frozen Planet, managed to film one – which took a total of 6 hours to form and sink.

At a depth of 4290 metres near Necker Island, Hawaii, researchers filmed a ghostlike deep-sea octopus. At more than 4000 metres in the Peru Basin, in the south-eastern Pacific Ocean, more specimens or similar octopuses were guarding their eggs. The octopuses deposit their eggs onto sponges that only grow locally on manganese nodules and the industrial extraction of these resources might cause the collapse of the community of animals in the deep sea.

Deep sea exploration is viewed by marine scientists as one of the greatest scientific challenges of the future. This gigantic research area is a little known world. A mere one percent of this habitat has been explored to date. In collaboration with the MARUM Research Center in Bremen,Tomorrow Today's five-part series presents a fascinating glimpse into the work of marine researchers. The MARUM scientist Wolfgang Bach researches one of the most remarkable structures in the deep sea. The professor at Bremen University studies the hydrothermal vents called black smokers. Some of these chimney-like hot water springs on the sea bed are formed in the mid-Atlantic,in an area known as the Logatchev Field where tectonic plates are moving apart and a new ocean floor is emerging from below. How the black smokers come into being,and what enables molluscs,shrimp and crabs to exist in their chemically aggressive environment are just two of the questions that Wolfgang Bach wants to answer.
