Scientists Discover Massive “Ocean” Near Earth’s Core

Scientists have discovered a reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans beneath the Earth’s surface, according to an international study. The water has been found between the transition zone of the Earth’s upper and lower mantle. The research team analyzed a rate diamond formed 660 meters below the Earth’s surface using techniques including Raman spectroscopy and FTIR spectrometry, ANI reported.

The study confirmed something that for a long time it was just a theory, namely that ocean water accompanies subducting slabs and thus enters the transition zone. This means that our planet’s water cycle includes the Earth’s interior.

“These mineral transformations greatly hinder the movements of rock in the mantle,” explains Prof. Frank Brenker from the Institute for Geosciences at Goethe University in Frankfurt. For example, mantle plumes — rising columns of hot rock from the deep mantle — sometimes stop directly below the transition zone. The movement of mass in the opposite direction also comes to standstill. Source: NDTV

  1. That is old news. sientices need to refer to the bible Gen 7vs11. Jehova is the creator of heaven and earth and because in those days man were so evil he flooded the whole earth,thank to Jesuschrist i stop looking for answers above or below i confided in the word of God and im save buy his grace
    Sience with out Gods knowlege is old news

  2. Hello Bruce,

    We are reminded in Genesis 2:6: “But a mist would go up from the earth, and it watered the entire surface of the ground.” Obviously, the “mist” provided more than a mere dew. It was enough to water the surface of the ground inside and outside the garden of Eden when man was created. Would this massive storehouse of water referenced in this news item at the core of the earth contribute in some fashion to the mist coming up from the ground? Have you any thoughts on this matter?
