Mysterious cold water mills off Sydney

OZ seems to be surrounded from Perth to Sydney in strange crap ! What is going on over there ?

SYDNEY: A mysterious, huge and dense mass of cold water is milling off the coast of Sydney, baffling researchers and delighting fishermen.

Experts currently know very little about what causes this large eddy or the influence it is having on the ecosystem of the surrounding Tasman Sea.

"What we do know is that this is a very powerful natural feature which [is tending] to push everything else aside - even the mighty East Australian Current,” said oceanographer David Griffin with the government research body CSIRO in Sydney.....


And here is something that may or may not be related ?

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Navy temporarily lost communication with a submarine off Florida's coast and sent ships and aircraft to search for the USS San Juan before the vessel was contacted early Wednesday, military officials said.....

Units of the USS Enterprise Carrier Strike Group saw a red flare in the area where the sub was operating off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla., Tuesday night, said spokesman Phil McGuinn..........

And then there is this that I realize most will believe off the wall. However they have been correct before. Filter at your own discretion as usual ! :worm

These reports also detail the near catastrophic loss of one of the United States Los Angeles-class nuclear attack submarines, the USS San Juan, which after ‘hitting’ one of these massive cold pools sank to near crushing depths and lost all contact with American Naval Authorities.

So serious was this near loss of the American Submarine that Britain’s top submarine rescue unit was put on alert to help the United States Navy, and as we can read as reported by The Herald News Service in their article titled "Scots sent to rescue US Navy nuclear submarine", and which says:

"The Scottish deep-sea rescue team which saved seven Russian submariners trapped 650ft down in the Pacific last year were "scrambled" for a top-secret mission off the Florida coast two days ago.......


All is not what it seems !

Wow, I read about this and wondered what climatic effects it might be having on our weather. A massive amount of cold water will cool down the nearby land I imagine, and in an area with usually high temps would lead to higher winds and potentially more storms.

It might not be too unnerving however, the eddies are reportendly common, but not as usually this big.

... Quote:
Smaller cold water eddies appear most years near Sydney. Griffin said that the last strong eddy - around 2 years ago - generated many enquiries from swimmers about why the water was so cold.

This time around, water temperatures at the beach have plunged as low as 14° C. “What’s interesting is this eddy is in same place as warm core eddy last September which also affected beach temperatures,” said Griffin.

The part I was interested in was the under ice locations of lakes that may becoming loose due to ice shelving. And as it relates to an underwater ocean discovered in the Atlantic as well as another in China and both are surfacing. At least that is what scientists believe. I am not a scientist merely an avid reader. :dbguy
