The seismic signal in scientists initially hampered were seemingly product & # 39; bottom volcanic activity, such as inflation or deflation boiler or simply the movement of magma below the sea floor.
Sismologu managed dedicated apparently reveals the nature of & # 39; seismic event strammat place recently in the vicinity of & # 39; Mayotte, a French island located between mainland Africa and Madagascar in the Mozambique Channel
Earlier in & # 39; November, scientists were left baffled by the discovery of & # 39; & # 39 tremors; Low frequency sent "seismic rumblings around the face & # 39; most of the planet".
Yep folks, something biggggg, yet strange slow, sent seismic rumblings around the face & # 39; most of the planet yesterday. The event seems to have happened in western Madagascar. The analogue best s & # 39; now the extended collapse of the roof & # 39; the volcanic magma chamber. Thread?#twitterscience https://t.co/nb8qsUY8M8

And now, independent seismology consultant named Anthony Lomax told The Daily Mail that the rumblings were "almost certainly" caused a "volcanic eruption under the & # 39; low water & # 39; off northeast & # 39; Mayotte. "
"The inflation / deflation and collapse of the volcano boilers, and the movement of magma below volcano can produce a wide variety of & # 39; seismic signals, including long and repetitive waves similar to those observed 11 & # 39, November.
The cryptic rumblings have been identified for the first time in 11 & # 39; November, b & # 39; & # 39 wavel of; low frequency leading to filling sensors & # 39; away from the point & # 39; their home but at the same time apparently have not been observed by the locals.
Between May and November & # 39; this year, the island & # 39; Mayotte has been hit by a series of & # 39; earthquake & # 39; low grade, with the greatest time in size & # 39; 5.8 15 & # 39; May.
