A mysterious ripple of seismic waves has led thousands of kilometers across the globe, tripping sensors across Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and Hawaii, regardless of being felt by a single person.
- Symmic Waves Start From the Mozambique Trimmer Sensors in Kenya, Chile, New Zealand and Canada
- The trams lasted more than 20 minutes
- The earthquake was unnoticed until it was picked up by an earthquake enthusiasm online
The shamans began just off the shorts of Mayoto, a French archipelago in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and Africa, and would be under the radar if not for an earthquake enthusiast in New Zealand that was tied to the US. It. Geology Survey's Real-Time Sizmogram displays online.
They posted pictures from the readings to Twitter, prompting researchers around the world to try to dare where the weird waves came from.
Not as traditional earthquake, which produces a jolt of various high frequency waves, the readings of the Mayotte Terror picked up consistent low frequency waves that lasted more than 20 minutes. It was as if the planet was like a bell.
Online Theorists suggest named Nuclear Tests, Sea Monsters, or Meteorite as the Cause of the Tremor, but Goran Ekstra, a Symologist at the Columbia University, tells National Geographic The statement is likely straightforward.
"I do not think I've seen anything like it [but] It does not mean that, in the end, the cause of them is exotic, "he said.
Professor Extram suggests that the seismic event actually started with an earthquake. He thinks it was transurient because it was a slow earthquake.
Slower earthquakes are burial than traditional quakes because they come from a gradual release of stress that can stretch over a significant period of time.
"The same deformation happens, but it can not happen as a jolt," said Professor Ekstrom.
Since May this year, Mayoto was subjected to what is known as a 'earthquake swarm'; A grater of hundreds of seismic events over a period of days or weeks, but the activity has significantly lowered the last few months.

Analysis by the French geology survey suggests the strange waves can indicate a mass movement of magma beneath the earth's crust, such as a collapse chamber.
Rhythmic movement, as slagging from the molten rock, or a pressure wave ricochet by the magma body have the potential to resonate in a similar way to the mayotto readings.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is the place of a similar event in 2002, where a similar slow earthquake and low-frequency waves are linked to a magma chamber collapsing under Nyiragongo volcano.
