Researchers made this discovery while studying earthquakes. Seismometers detected shockwaves originating from deep within the Earth, leading them to explore further.

The existence of this ocean challenges existing theories about Earth’s water cycle.

This discovery sheds light on a potential whole-Earth water cycle that may explain the abundance of liquid water on our habitable planet.

This hidden ocean lies deep within our planet, and its existence opens up new avenues for understanding Earth’s geological processes!
