about half a meter high.
Currently, scientists are trying to understand what caused
of these oceanic anomalies and what effect they may have on
the climate of the Atlantic and the whole Earth.
The first assumption put forward Brazilian expert Guilherme
Castelao. In his opinion, the giant crater phenomenon occurs
the reason for the interaction at the mouth of the Amazon two ocean currents:
South Equatorial and what runs along the northern shores
South America. However, these ocean currents are not constant, but
funnels somehow never disappear and do not change any
a way that testifies to the fallacy of the Brazilian theory
specialist. At the basis of the formation of this anomaly, apparently,
lies a completely different mechanism, and while scientists can not figure it out.
Like to understand whether these giant water turbulence affect climate
Of the earth.
An interesting opinion about this, the newspaper La Stampa,
expressed a specialist in natural mills, Bill Jones, who
believes that the giant whirlpools of the Atlantic can be used
to facilitate ship navigation and even to save fuel
while swimming in the local waters.
