Prehistoric land under the sea 

Huge cliffs and vast basins were revealed in the survey

By Mike McKimm
Science Correspondent, BBC Northern Ireland 

It's a landscape no human has even seen. And those who live right beside it had no idea it even existed.

Deep below the sea, off the north coast of Northern Ireland, a dramatic geological mystery has been discovered.

Huge cliffs, vast basins and plateaus, a lake and even rivers have been found. But so far no-one is certain what caused them to end up like this deep under the sea.

The discovery was made when the seabed was being surveyed to update old Admiralty charts, drawn up in the mid-1800s.

Funded by the European Union and backed by the UK's Maritime and Coastguard Agency, a survey vessel has been scanning the seabed along most of the north coast of Ireland, including the seabed north of Rathlin Island. 

Marine biologists have been surveying the sea bed

Most of the bottom was largely flat and unremarkable, but as the survey headed east it suddenly came across an unexpected landscape.

For the first time marine biologists could understand what was down there and the scale of it all.

"I'm always very envious of my terrestrial biologist colleagues", said Joe Breen, Head of Aquatic Science with Northern Ireland's new Environment Agency, who has dived the area for years.

"They can go out on land and see where their habitats are. Underwater we've never had that luxury.

"On a dive you can only see about 15 metres so it's like operating in fog. Now, with this survey, we can report on the true extent of the features.

"For the European Habitat Directive, we have to report the extent of our reefs and sandbanks. This will help with the whole concept of marine spatial planning.

"So, if someone wants to put in renewable energy or extract aggregate, we now have a blueprint and can see how they're going to interact and if it's sustainable."

The survey is to update old Admiralty charts of the area

One of the most striking details is a large lake or crater on what was once the top of huge cliffs towering above the plateau below.

The streams and rivers that fed it are still clearly defined.

And that raises one of the mysteries. Why did coastal erosion not obliterate all that detail as the sea slow rose over the land?

Could it mean that some cataclysmic event took place that allowed the sea to overwhelm the land before erosion could begin?

But already the marine scientists are excited about what they've found.

"We can now get a true idea of the true extent of the rare and endangered species and habitats", said Mr Breen.

"We can now see that we have got more of certain features which we weren't aware of - like sandbanks and reefs. The sandbank features in particular are stunning."

The survey is part of a 2m euro cross-border collaboration with the Marine Institute of Ireland. The area covered is a three nautical mile strip ranging from Tory Island off Donegal to Torr Head near Ballycastle.

Blue-Hue? is he Just Blind, or a One-eyed 'king' ?

Sir Ranulph FIENESS once made a book called
WABAR UBAR the Atlantis- of -the -Sands, in 1992
in SHALALA-emporion Calanites-bay, Dhofar/ Arabia- Foelix

PLATO wrote about the same area, but nobody noticed.

But, we already know of " DOGGER=- LAND "
what you bring-up is an elaboration of the former subject
This is the same thing, an land extention under the Sea
and marine geologists have found extensive
Port City Layouts through/out the Civilised world

but Since THIS is an `ALL- American `Atlantis Web-Site,
there´s little Overseas/intrest in european ancient land features thus,
I praise myself to be the first European to reply to your intriguing Message.
DATE of the immersion is probably 855 bc.

CAUSE is the "Quarternary lake - burst"( SUPPOSEDLY IN 8.000 BC,
During the Early Paeolythic MAGDALENIEN-EPOCH, but a ctually in 855 bc

Moon struck Earth according to various Myths in  855 bc
causing RIFTS and Mountain-rising at the OPPOSITE End !

Proof of this( my-)Theory is that the (Sound-)Waves
that pushed-and broke-up the coastal shore lands
worked, NOT laterally but more like a molehill
with sub-Sea Landslides at the sides.

So much for the damn theory of "Self-wandering"Continents

Thus the African Great Rift, the ALP-Mnts the Himalay Mnts
and the URAL-Mnts and rift were created iun  one bounce by the MOON.

Sounds weird ?
Several Myths tell about the Moon colliding with Earh in 855 bc
(At the OTHER side of us fortunately.) the result However
was the breaking-up of "PANGEA "( NOT in 20.000 bc but 855 bc.)

ATLANTIS was once such a coastal port City
that by PLATO's suviving Myth was hit by a MEGA-Tsunami
It was NOT in IRELAND, but the THUATHA-de-DANANN
were immigrants probably in 855 bc who had fled Adland
and almost naturally projected their Ancient Myths onto their NEW Lands.

Since 855 bc the sea has risen 50 meters
so any Doggerland or Ireland-submerched land- features
lower than 50 Meters must have been wet anyway.

England & Ireland have sheared-away by soundwaves
travelling through the Earth's iron core by the impacting MOON

in Greek Myth,
this Moon was named EURYNOME. enough said.

For deviating from the official Epoch Cannon,
I was made to throw away my Earth-Historybooks lest
I wanted to stay in my Council-rent house, and, have been
made a social-Outcast in my own home town
