Earth Has A Secret Reservoir Of Water, Say Scientists

A hundred and fifty years ago, in "Journey to the Centre of the Earth", French science-fiction forerunner Jules Verne pictured a vast sea that lay deep under our planet's surface.

 

Today, that strange and haunting image has found an unexpected echo in a scientific paper.

 

Writing in the journal Nature, scientists on Wednesday said they had found an elusive mineral pointing to the existence of a vast reservoir deep in Earth's mantle, 400-600 kilometres (250-375 miles) beneath our feet.

 

It may hold as much water as all the planet's oceans combined, they believe.

 

The evidence comes from a water-loving mineral called ringwoodite that came from the so-called transition zone sandwiched between the upper and lower layers of Earth's mantle, they said.

 

Analysis shows that a whopping 1.5 percent of the rock comprises molecules of water.

 

The find backs once-contested theories that the transition zone, or at least significant parts of it, is water-rich, the investigators said.

 

"This sample really provides extremely strong confirmation that there are local wet spots deep in the Earth in this area," said Graham Pearson of Canada's University of Alberta, who led the research.

 

"That particular zone in the Earth, the transition zone, might have as much water as all the world's oceans put together."

Doesn't do anything to influence me to change my pro local Flood view.  But I'm sure it buoys the spirits of Global Flood proponents.

Being somewhat of a scientist myself, I feel it needful to point out that theories are based on facts.

 

Somewhat. Theories are based on repeated and repeatable observations. Then making logical predictions about those observations. It isn't science if only one person observes it. That takes two or more. :)

this discovery was predicted for years.  either its a reserve for a future flood, or its to give power to the organization supporting the anti-christ.  water will be a problem in the future.

It is chemically bound in the rock, so its not just sloshing around down there. How ever it has changed my flood view. If God decided to release even 1/3 of that water, the whole place would flood.

Hot Stock Tip: Buy shares in hydroelectric companies now. When the New World Order steps in they will be running things.

No. Hydrates are some of the most common forms of compounds there are. They're even found in space.

Yes, the Moon has plenty of water (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/27/science/space/27moon.html?_r=0 ), and Enceladus, a moon of Jupiter, has an ocean of water (http://www.nasa.gov/press/2014/april/nasa-space-assets-detect-ocean-inside-saturn-moon/#.U6qu7SqF-aA ), and vast oceans of water are found throughout outer space (http://www.nasa.gov/topics/universe/features/universe20110722.html ).

To be expected. Hydrogen is the most common element and oxygen is the third with carbon being the forth. But space is a big place, and getting bigger at an accelerating pace.
