French Team Says Satellite Images Reveal Underwater City

Share This Site by Gary Vey for viewzone

Without revealing the location, a team of explorers and researchers announced on December 15th, 2009, that they had discovered an underwater city in the Caribbean -- and backed up their claim with some amazing satellite photographs.

This is a deja-vu of the alleged discovery of "Atlantis" that was made back in 2001 by a Canadian based team that claimed to have found an underwater city off the Western tip of Cuba. The leader of that expedition claimed the site was in very deep waters -- more than 2000 feet -- and produced photographs collected through sonar scans and videotapes of the site taken from an unmanned vehicle which showed symmetrically arranged formations. Their white colour suggests they are made from cut, granite-like stone rather than naturally formed limestone, which is grey or black when oxidized.

Like the announcement made today, the evidence was photographic in nature and was widely reported around the globe. Most news sources simply copied reports from other sources and no one bothered to dig deeper to learn who was making the claims and to determine if anyone had replicated their claims. The present announcement has the same circumstances -- even more suspicious since no names were mentioned.

You would expect that anyone would be happy to have their names connected with such a wonderful discovery. This seems very odd. And, yes, there is money involved.

The megalithic formations from the 2001 claim [above] -- called Mega for short -- occupied an area of about 20 square kilometres and it was suggested that they might be the remains from a series of rooms connected by large corridors. Paulina Zelitsky, the exploration team's project director, wondered whether they were part of a temple-like building used for astronomical purposes about 8,000 years ago.

 Zelitsky was also the president of the Advanced Digital Communications, a company that was supposed to be joint partners with the Cuban government to salvage archeological treasures from the waters off the Caribbean island. She was apparently more skilled at running a scam to lure investors to retrieve artifacts from the site than in doing any real archaeology. Following the initial announcement and the widely publicized, grainy photographs of rectangular shapes the whole discovery seemed to have been completely shut down. The last mention of Zelitsky was her arrest for financial irregularities in Mexico, where it is believed she was extradited to Toronto.

The New Discovery

This new site was found using advanced satellite imagery, and is not in any way associated with the alleged site found by Zelitsky. According to the new team, "To be seen on satellite, our site is much shallower."

But, of course there is a financial angle to this team's announcement. The team is currently seeking money to mount an expedition to confirm and explore "what appears to be a vast underwater city." And... they need funding.

From their press releases it appears that they may actually have discovered these lines and shapes entirely from the satellite images and not from the actual location (which they did not mention).

    "You have to be careful working with satellite images in such a location. The digital matrix sometimes misinterprets its data, and shows ruins as solid masses. The thing is, we've found structure -- what appears to be a tall, narrow pyramid; large platform structures with small buildings on them; we've even found standing parallel post and beam construction in the rubble of what appears to be a fallen building. You can't have post and beam without human involvement." -- The Team's principal investigator.

 Is this Atlantis? (Again)

Careful not to fall into the trap of Zelitsky's expedition, and taking a realistic view of what they could have discovered, a spokesman for the team said, "The romanticized ideal of Atlantis probably never existed, nor will anyone ever strap on a SCUBA tank, jump in the water, and find a city gateway that says, 'Welcome to Atlantis.' However, we do believe that this city may have been one of many cities of an advanced, seafaring, trade-based civilization, which may have been visited by their Eurocentric counterparts."

Fair enough. When questioned about the location, the team was careful to include the "island" nation where this site is located in any future efforts to salvage artifacts or conduct any further exploration. This sounds a little like the concessions that the previous expedition, run by Zelitsky, had to make with Cuba.

    "Whatever we've found does not belong to us. It belongs to the people of this island, and to the world at-large. If any pieces are brought to the surface, they belong in the hands of a museum." -- the Project Leader

The evidence

At least these new photos have scope and detail in them. In fact, they're pretty amazing and suggest a metropolis. But pictures speak volumes, so... enjoy!

When asked to speculate about how these structures apparently sank to the sea floor, the team spokesman only said, "We have several theories."

How did these cities get under the Caribbean?

Most of the dates that geologists place on underwater anomalies are from 8,000 to 12,000 years ago. This is because they have determined that this is when the oceans were much lower and the submerged land that we see today was once high above the water line.

About 12000 to 14000 years ago, the Earth had just encountered something that changed the climate dramatically. Soon after this mysterious event the ice caps started melting at both the North and South Poles. The oceans received this melting water and rose up to about where they are today.

Geologists think that the "trigger event" may have been something from space -- perhaps either an asteroid or comet that broke up and plunged into the ocean, causing atmospheric heating and huge tsunamis. Another theory has North America being hit by a huge Coronal Mass Ejection. But whatever it was, it left traces of microscopic debris in an identifiable layer that extends in a mat over North America, with its highest concentration being near the Great Lakes.

 The theory that these cities were submerged around this time is supported by traces of some kind of impact that is visible on the East coast of America. Thousands of elliptical craters called "Carolina Bays" cover parts of North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Virginia and Maryland. One age estimate for the craters is 10,500 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age. [above Aerial photograph of the Myrtle Beach area by Fairchild Aerial Survey in 1930]

More on the Carolina Bays

Facts:

    An estimated half a million (crater) depressions, in at least six states that cover around 160,000 square kilometers.

    Aside from Georgia, North and South Carolina, they are also to be found in other bordering states such as Maryland Virginia and Florida.

    Their (craters) frequency is astonishing. One area of Bladen County, North Carolina that measures 8 kilometers by 6.4 kilometers has a 67% covering of bays. Other areas of the Carolinas have as much as 50% bay cover.

    No fewer than 140,000 of these are of moderate to large size, with lengths of more than 152.4 meters. One of the biggest depressions is Big Swamp Bay in central South Carolina which is six kilometers from one end to the other. Some bays over 11 kilometers long.

    Many craters possess magnetic anomalies.

    In Camden, South Carolina, close to some of the bays, drainage ditch excavators found at a depth of 4.3 meters a mass of downed trees, all in the same alignment as if there had been a massive blowdown in the distant past.

In the 1930s, aerial surveys were done for the first time of the Carolinas. When these pictures were developed and printed, the surveyors noticed as many as 500,000 elliptical craters -- some filled with water, some just dry land across the Carolina states. But also when it was traced further, it was noticed they went as high as New Jersey and down south to Florida. And they covered 6 states.

It was quite clear from plotting the position of these craters that a much larger event must have happened. Ones that went into mountain areas obviously disappeared. Those that went into the water were not traceable. So, right from the earliest point, it was suggested these were the result of meteor showers. But some of the bays or craters were several miles long. Some of them were only a few hundred yards. There was no consistency to what had happened.

 [Above Carolina Bay as seen today in a photo from an airplane.]

The consensus of the scientific community was that this was a large asteroid that broke apart and crashed into the earth and Atlantic Ocean with tremendous energy. The time for this event has been placed at about 9000 years BCE.

This is, more or less, the date of these submerged sites -- including the discovery that was announced today. Could it be Atlantis? It's a good guess. Take a look at some of the other artifacts that have been recorded in the Caribbean.
