The scientific community has been stunned by the discovery in Mexico of the world’s second largest blue landfall, potentially filling a huge “gap” in knowledge about life on other planets.

The huge blue sinkhole was originally discovered in 2021 but has only recently been documented in the scientific journal Frontiers In Marine Science.

The second largest blue hole in the world, 900 feet deep, has been discovered off the coast of Mexico: Tahm Jah is located in Chetumal Bay off the southeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. Daily mail online https://t.co/KoxyA5yZhF

According to scientists associated with the public research center El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (Ecosur), this is probably “the deepest blue landslide known in the region.”

A sinkhole, or sinkhole, is known in the scientific community as a circular hole in the surface of limestone formations in karst areas where water is deposited. They are actually vertical sea caves carved over millennia by glacial runoff during the Ice Age, according to Discovery. com.

The world’s second deepest blue hole has been discovered off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. The giant underwater cave is about 900 feet deep and covers an area of ​​147,000 square feet. https://t.co/COTzX1P0sn

These vast water formations often extend hundreds of feet down.

The most recent cobalt cave system was found off Chetumal Bay in the Yucatan Peninsula, surveyed and sampled by divers, underwater sonar and other methods.

This giant blue landfall is called Taam ja, which means “deep water” in the Mayan language, and reaches a depth of 274.4 meters and an area of ​​13,690 square meters, according to Live Science.

This “makes it the second deepest known landfall in the world” after the Dragon Shell in the South China Sea, which is believed to be 300 meters deep, according to a study published in Frontiers in Marine Science last February.

It should also be noted that the slopes of Thaam Dzha are very steep, with an inclination angle of about 80 degrees, and form a “large conical structure”.

The walls of the crater protect the water from the ebb and flow, making it flow perfectly steady.

Thaam Jah contains little oxygen and sunlight only shines on the surface. Even under these conditions, these gigantic formations are teeming with life that has adapted to the low oxygen environment.

According to Discovery.com, instead of oxygen, these sewers are filled with deadly hydrogen sulfide, making it dangerous for people to enter without the proper equipment.

Coincidentally, the scientists noted, this lack of oxygen has the side effect of well-preserved fossils, allowing scientists to identify long-extinct species.

In fact, underwater shells could become gateways to both space and time, which could fill a “gap” in knowledge about life types and forms and the ability to survive on other planets.

Scholars have stated that “the origin and evolution of Taam ja” are worthy of further study.
