-Sure! I actually did a small project on it once. But, I find my explination skills lack. So I found this article for you:
"In the summer of 1997, an array of underwater microphones, or hydrophones, owned by the US government picked up a strange sound. For a minute, it rose rapidly in frequency; then it disappeared. The hydrophones, a relic of cold-war submarine tracking, picked up this signal again and again during those summer months, then it was never heard again. No one knows what made the sound, now known as "The Bloop" (hear it atwww.thebloop.notlong.com).
So what’s behind the strange noises? The Bloop sounds like it might have been created by an animal, but it is far louder than any whale song, so a marine creature that made it would either be bigger than any whale, or a much more efficient producer of sound. The most popular speculation about Slowdown is that it was caused by the break-up of Antarctic ice - which means it might give an indication of climate change.”

    The fact that it’s so close to R’lyeh, I don’t think that’s just a coincidence.
