What is the Bermuda Triangle? • The Bermuda triangle is a loosely defined region in the western part of Atlantic Ocean. Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale. • It is bordered by Bermuda. but some estimates are up to three times larger. .000 square miles. Florida. • Spans an area of around 500.


The catastrophes in the sea and air take place very quickly. . Before that all onboard tools usually fail . particularly navigation system.The cause of speculations in Bermuda Triangle is the disappearance of ships and airplanes which happens here too often. control system and communications facilities.

Super Natural Theories on Bermuda Triangle • Sea Monsters • UFOs • Lost city of Atlantis .

 A small plane making a water landing or a boat having engine trouble can be carried away  from its reported position by the current.6 Mi/H). it can carry floating objects. In essence. It has a  surface velocity of up to 2.GULF STREAM The Gulf Stream is an ocean current that originates  in the Gulf Of Mexico and then flows through  The Straits Of Florida into the North Atlantic. and like a river. it is a river within an ocean.5 m/sec (5. .

Human Error One of the most cited explanations in official inquiries as to the loss of any aircraft or vessel is human error whether deliberate or accidental. Humans have been known to make mistakes resulting in catastrophe. and losses within the Bermuda Triangle are no exception .

which form in tropical waters. These have historically cost thousands of lives and caused billions of dollars in damages. These storms have in the past caused a number of incidents related to the triangle.Violent Weather Hurricanes are powerful storms. .

Methane Hydrates  The reason for disappearance of ships and airplanes may be due to presence of hydrate of methane. It is formed at the depth of more than 300 meters at the temperature of about 2 degrees above zero. Powerful eruption of methane under water results in churning of it. Because of that the density of the water (or the air) descends sharply and they can’t secure floatation of ships (or flair for . This substance is very unstable and easily turns into gaseous state. The conditions on the bottom of the Bermuda triangle are just the same.

While some have theorized that unusual local magnetic anomalies may exist in the area such anomalies have not been found.Compass Variation Compass problems are one of the cited phrases in many Triangle incidents. .

It may be a combination of various hypothesis But we can continue the scientific work on this subject. . because we have a lot of materials to study and interesting discoveries are waiting for us.Conclusion The exact reason for the disappearance of ship and airplanes in the area is still unknown.
