[ExP] Riddle “Singing” Glaciers in Greenland

Our universe affects a variety of oddities and phenomena which include for example, evidence of mysterious unexplained sounds broken, so to speak the normality of daily life. Almost every continent has ever been recorded strange sounds of different tone from subtle buzzing and humming like a wafting from afar, to sudden , explosive ” boom .” Some mystical sounds accompanied by bright flashes of light.

Interest in these phenomena science exhibits a very long time , and it continues unabated from April 20, 2015 all of the California city of Eureka Media wrote about the mysterious sounds and noises that are often accompanied by flashes of light , and sometimes become a cause of failure of the work of local car alarms car .

In Greenland, one of these supernatural “mystic sounds ” has been known for decades as “Pitch- der Bai Dove.” For the first time the sound was recorded in August 1932 French expedition after exploring the coast of Greenland, from Cape Farewell to the Bay Scoresby . According to the researchers, the mysterious sound was like the sound of a giant hearth from afar. Previously, something like that heard the representatives of the other groups – eight times in five different places in the daytime and during the polar night .

Mysterious noise was described researcher A. Deauville in the journal Nature in 1934:

“In August 1932, during the French expedition of the International Polar Year (the first Polar Year was held from August 1, 1882 on August 1, 1883; approx. Mixstuff) in Scoresby Bay on the East coast of Greenland, some of my colleagues and I heard the mysterious four times sound, called Wegener “Pitch- der Bai Dove.” The sound we heard in the morning, usually at 11 am (GMT), and in the afternoon. It was a powerful and deep musical sound coming from far away to the south, lasting a few seconds. It was like the roar of a forge. After that, the sound was not heard during the Polar Year . Wegener and five of his companions heard the sound eight times in five different locations throughout the day and polar night. Sometimes it lasted a few minutes. Wegener believed that sound domestic traffic ice iceberg. In fact , a strange sound came from Scoresby Bay of Cape Brewster , is part of the coast, where the inner ice flowing into the sea from large glaciers .”

The scientific hypothesis about the origin of the mysterious sounds made by glaciers , associated with such phenomena as ” (Cryoseism – shake the soil ) , causing cracking of frozen soil during the melting of ice and ” (Icequake) that are associated with the formation of cracks in the interior ice.

Compared with tectonic earthquakes , these phenomena are very weak and are registered only in the vicinity of the epicenter. On the “glacial earthquakes ,” said another Wegener . Modern scientific data collected during the French expeditions for decades , indicate that the incidence of this phenomenon may increase as global warming leads to melting of glaciers , and thus to their greater mobility .

Researcher Tom Irwin touched on the subject of these “glacial earthquakes” in the online article in the June 2006 ” Data on the vibrations.” Irwin cites research geophysicist Göran Ekström of low-frequency seismic signals emanating from inside the glaciers of Greenland, which show that the seismic waves are most noticeable mainly in the warmer temperatures in the summer months , when the glaciers melt partially .

J.Ekstrom and his colleagues argued that the thin layer of water at the base of the glacier allows the entire mass of ice to slide on the surface as the water creates a kind of lubricant.

“This raises the vibration produced by this slide that cause earthquakes ice . While a significant portion of the earthquake icy glacial ice is in motion and can move per minute for about 10 meters (33 feet ) .”

This movement , in all probability, and utters mysterious sounds . J.Ekström explains this special sensitivity of Greenland glaciers to higher air and water temperatures. Antarctic glaciers exist at much lower temperatures , and climate warming is not provided to them such a significant impact. At the same time in the Greenland ice , sloping down to the sea, are on the verge of melting .

In this aspect, another point of interest .

A. Deauville in its initial report in 1932 compared the sounds produced by the movement of glaciers , with the sounds of ” Desert Song” and, together with his group decided that they are very similar. Abnormal sounds are recorded not only in the ice , but also among the quicksand .

“Is this the sound of the vibrating sound of the iceberg” , – said A. Deauville – or ” Desert Song?”

In fact , experts reveal the close analogy between the white fields of snow, blue blocks of ice and sand dunes of the Arabian Desert .
