Pacific ocean, according to information given out by the Department of the Interior through the Geological Sur- vey. The Japanese man-of-war, the Manchu, found the spot recently while on a chart-making expedition for the Japanese Navy department. Its depth was so great that it could not be measured for the reason that the sounding wirecarried by the vessel reached only 32,644 feet, or nearly six and one-fourth miles. How much deeper than the length of the sounding wire used the ocean may be at this place cannot even be guessed. The greatest ocean depth previously known was discovered by a German surveying ship in 1912, at a place off the coast of Mindanao, Phil- ippine islands, where bottom was reached at a depth of 32,113 feet. These great depths have lately become interesting in connection with the study of earthquakes that appear to be produced by the slipping of strata along places deep in the crust of the earth. The deepest place in the Atlantic ocean thus far found lies just east of the Island of Haiti, where the depth is 27,922 feet. The new sonic sounding apparatus, an American invention that measures depths by recording the time required for sotmd waves to travel to the ocean's bottom and return, will facili- tate the measurement of great depths of water.--Outdoors. \Vatch the world come to Catalina. |
