Scariest moment of my life
This isn’t the sound of a deep sea monster from Pacific Rim or Godzilla. It’s not the intimidating bass line from a Hans Zimmer score. It’s not even next generation dub step.

They recovered the data from the hydropone array and listened to the sounds, called icequakes. It was entirely different from harmonic tremors of an iceberg running aground.
Since sound is a form of energy, Dziak was able to calculate the energy flows through the ocean over a 20 minute period, which equaled the sound energy generated by 214 ships.
