Another Arctic Ocean Found Beneath Asia

Lots of water the size of the Arctic Ocean has been discovered hundreds of miles beneath eastern Asia, reports National Geographic. Researchers found the underground “Ocean” while scanning seismic waves as they passed through Earth’s interior.

The leader of the research team, Michael Wysession of Washington University in St. Louis says that it’s not actually an ocean. The water is a very low percentage of the rock, probably less than 0.1 percent.
