Bernie Bamford, a British aeronautical engineer, got his 15 minutes of fame in 2009 when he reported rectangular images, the size of Wales, on the seafloor 620 miles off the west coast of Africa while browsing Google Earth(a). The images were widely shared on the internet. However, it is claimed that these features were discovered even earlier by Larkin & Cynthia Jones(b).
Google responded, “that the image is merely an artefact of the data collection process, not the city of Atlantis.”
If the lines represented walls or streets, they would have to be a number of kilometres thick or wide, which is not compatible with a city.
A number of satellite images showing underwater anomalies have been claimed as evidence of Atlantis, but so far all have been shown to be the result of faulty data gathering and/or defective analysis of the data.
In July 2021, I was sent a number of images that purported to show anomalous underwater images in the Central Mediterranean, northeast of Malta. At first sight, they appeared to show extensive manmade features. However, further investigation eventually revealed that the images were the consequence of the flawed computer interpretation of sonar data. In December 2021 Luigi Usai produced the same flawed imagery as evidence that he had discovered a lost submerged civilisation!
