anyone see this? apparently a freshwater reservoir 2X the size of lake ontario sits under the atlantic ocean

 

 

A massive freshwater reservoir was discovered beneath the Atlantic Ocean — stretching from Massachusetts to New Jersey, according to researchers.

The rare find was reported by experts at Columbia University last week following a multi-year, sub-seafloor study.

“We knew there was fresh water down there in isolated places, but we did not know the extent or geometry,” explained lead researcher Chloe Gustafson, a Ph.D. candidate at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

“It could turn out to be an important resource in other parts of the world,” she said in a statement.

Using electromagnetic waves, Gustafson’s team was able to map the underwater “aquifer” — which stretches out about 50 miles to the edge of the continental shelf.

“If found on the surface, it would create a lake covering some 15,000 square miles,”
