The craters – two in Yamal and one on the Taymyr peninsula – were revealed during the summer, leading to urgent analysis by scientists as well as a wave of speculation suggesting the cause was aliens from outer space, meteorites, or stray missiles.
Now respected Science in Siberia journal has come up with a coherent explanation for the northern craters and – sensationally – links it to the notorious Bermuda Triangle phenomenon, where ships and aircraft have disappeared under strange circumstances between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico.
Heating from above the surface due to unusually warm climatic conditions, and from below, due to geological fault lines, led to a huge release of gas hydrates, say the scientists from the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum-Gas Geology and Geophysics in Novosibirsk.
They subjected one of the two known craters in Yamal – a peninsula known to locals as ‘the end of the world’ – to detailed scrutiny.
