||A Hidden "ocean" isolated
has been discovered 400 miles beneath earth, and is apparently
locked in a blue crystalline mineral called
ringwoodite, a new study suggest.
This large reservoir may hold three times as
much water that exists in all the world's
discovery might explain where all our oceans
water cam from.
"Geological processes on the Earth’s
surface, such as earthquakes or erupting
volcanoes, are an expression of what is
going on inside the Earth, out of our
sight," geophysicist Dr. Steven
Jacobsen, an associate professor at
Northwestern University, said in a written
statement. "I think we are finally
seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water
cycle, which may help explain the vast
amount of liquid water on the surface of our
habitable planet. Scientists have been
looking for this missing deep water for
