According to the researchers, the crater was formed by the gas hydrate pneumo "boom" – the same process could cause anomalies in the Bermuda Triangle.
According to interfax.ru referring to the members of the expedition, the employees of the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, the scientists have carried out a research on the Yamal crater using methods of tomography, aeromagnetic and radiometric survey and sounding.
According to scientists, the crater was formed due to pneumo "boom". The heat rising up from cracks in the earth"s crust and hot summer caused it. As a result, gas hydrates contained in the surface layer of the earth (crystalline compounds of water and gas) exploded: "gas blew up and formed a funnel".
Scientists have noted that similar processes could cause the famous incidents of ships and planes disappearance in the Bermuda Triangle, which were previously explained by various factors, up to psychic ones.
"There is a version concerning gas hydrates. They are beginning to decompose, methane ice turns into gas, and it happens like an avalanche, like a nuclear reaction, and they begin to evolve in large amounts of it," said the Deputy Director of the Institute for Science Igor Eltsov.
According to the scientists, because of the warming the ocean "boils" and sinks ships, and because of the turbulence of the atmosphere supersaturated with methane aircraft fall.
It is worth noting that in the United States, in Chestnut Ridge Park in New York State, due to the flow of natural gas, quenchless flame burns under the waterfalls.
And in modern Turkey because of poison gas, a cave, which had formed in ancient times, after a massive earthquake has turned into "the gates of hell".
