Beneath our feet: Earth’s hidden ocean discovery unveils vast water reservoir

In a groundbreaking revelation, scientists have uncovered a colossal ocean nestled beneath Earth’s crust, teeming with more water than our planet’s surface. This hidden reservoir, residing 400 miles underground in ‘ringwoodite’ rock, challenges our understanding of Earth’s dynamics.

The crystal structure of ringwoodite acts like a sponge, attracting hydrogen and trapping water. This discovery hints at a comprehensive Earth water cycle, potentially explaining the abundance of liquid water on our habitable planet.

Unveiled during seismic studies, this underwater marvel could signify three times more water beneath Earth’s surface than in its oceans.
