Subterranean ocean with more water than on Earth found 2023

In recent times, it seems as though every other day a mind-blowing science story has emerged, all of which have shattered our minds.

First, a terrifying black hole pointing directly at us was discovered, followed by the discovery of a massive opening in the sun and a continent that had been absent for 375 years.

It comes out that a massive supply of water is stored 400 miles below the surface in ringwoodite rock.

People just discovered a large ocean beneath the Earth’s crust.

Scientists have discovered that mantle rock stores water in a sponge-like state, which is not a liquid, solid, or gas, but a fourth state.

2014 saw the publication of the scientific paper titled “Dehydration melting at the top of the lower mantle,” which outlined the findings.

“The ringwoodite is like a sponge, absorbing water,” said geophysicist Steve Jacobsen at the time. “Ringwoodite has a unique crystal structure that allows it to attract hydrogen and trap water.”

“Under the conditions of the deep mantle, this mineral can contain a great deal of water,” added Jacobsen, a member of the team that made the discovery.

He added, “I believe we are finally seeing evidence for a global water cycle, which may help explain the vast amount of liquid water on our planet’s surface.” Scientists have spent decades searching for this absent deep water.”

After researching earthquakes and determining that seismometers detected shockwaves beneath the Earth’s surface, scientists made the discovery.

From this, they were able to determine that the water was being held in ringwoodite rock.

If the granite contained only 1% water, it would indicate that there is three times more water beneath the Earth’s surface than there is in the oceans.
