INTRODUCTION The bermuda triangle is a Legendary area of the Atlantic ocean between Puerto Rico,Florida and the Bermuda Islands in which many uncountable events happen. Area varies from 500,000 and 1,500,000 square miles.

PowerPoint Presentation:

1492 – Columbus’s compass went haywire and it’s reported that he and his crew saw “weird lights” in the sky. Sometimes the Coast Guard answers more than 5,000 distress calls within the Triangle per year. Public interest in the Bermuda Triangle increased exponentially with the publication of Charles Berlitz’s 1974 bestseller The Bermuda Triangle .

Popular theories solving the mystery:

Popular theories solving the mystery Methane Gas: trapped under the sea floor can erupt, as a result can lower the water density and cause ships to sink. Even planes flying over it, can catch fire and get completely destroyed during such gas blowout.  Sargasso Sea: is a strange area that has no shores and bounded only by water currents on all sides. The ships passing through it have been stranded and made motionless.   


Electronic Fog : a strange thick cloud appears from nowhere and engulfs a ship or a plane. Instruments begin to malfunction, and finally the ship or the aircraft vanishes without a trace. 

Christopher Columbus:

Christopher Columbus In 1492 Christopher columbus was his famous journey, Which would eventually lead him to the West indies. He noted that the ships compass was acting Strangely and giving inaccurate Readings in the Sargasso sea and at one point he saw a frat hall of Shoot across the sky and crash into the sea .

Flight 19:

Flight 19 December 5, 1945 – “Flight 19” Five Navy planes vanished without a trace on a training mission during a severe storm. A rescue plane was dispatched to find them and it too never returned. (27 men in all) An official Navy report of the incident insinuated that the planes disappeared... “ as if they had flown to Mars .”

Why Mysterious???:

Why Mysterious??? The Bermuda Triangle has always been known as an area of paranormal activities No one has ever escaped its wrath alive No electronic device can work there None of the occurrences have an exact explanation, only theories

Natural Explanations:

Natural Explanations Methane Hydrates Compass Variations Hurricanes Freak Waves

Methane Hydrates:

Methane Hydrates An explanation for some disappearances focused on the presence of methane hydrates on the continental shelves. Laboratory experiments carried out in Australia have proven that bubbles can sink a scale model ship by decreasing the density of the water; any wreckage consequently rising to the surface would be rapidly dispersed by the Gulf Stream.

Compass Variations:

Compass Variations Compass problems are one of the cited phrases in many Triangle incidents. Some have theorized the possibility of unusual local magnetic anomalies in the area, however these have not been shown to exist. It should also be remembered that compasses have natural magnetic variations in relation to the Magnetic poles.


Hurricanes Hurricanes are extremely powerful storms which are spawned in the Atlantic near the equator, and have historically been responsible for thousands of lives lost and billions of dollars in damage. In 1988, Hurricane Gilbert, one of the most powerful hurricanes in history, set back Jamaica's economy by three years. These storms have in the past caused a number of incidents related to the Triangle.

Freak Waves:

Freak Waves Extremely large waves can appear seemingly at random, even in calm seas. One such rogue wave caused the Ocean Ranger, then the world's largest offshore platform, to capsize in 1982. There is, however, no particular reason to believe rogue waves are more common in the Bermuda region, and this explanation cannot account for the loss of airplanes.
