Scientists discovered a region near the Oceania (Australia) continent, where 35 years of ancient lava flows. The region, which looks like Mordor in the Lord of the Rings, the legendary literary and cinematic series by its appearance, was under scrutiny.
In a region close to the Australian shores, a gigantic area formed by submerged lava flows was discovered. The region resembles Mordor, which we saw in a series of the same named films adapted from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings novels on a white background. But in this mysterious view underwater there is no trace of either the orcs or the master of the darkness.
Scientists use advanced underwater imaging techniques to create a detailed map of the region. In this region of 34 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide, 26 ancient lava flow remains were found.

Each of these remains of lava flow reflects physical characteristics resembling towers in Mordor, with extremely steep slopes. Even the highest one is stretched to 625 meters. I mean, if our innocent character trying to destroy the ring was really alive to Fro, it would be hard to climb. Another detail that makes it interesting is that no previous equals have been found underwater or above.
Nick Schofield, a researcher at the University of Aberdeen in England, said: “The data obtained as part of our oil exploration studies have led us to trace anti-lava flows. We have also seen maps that have not been seen before. ”

The 3D seismic reflection data, the mapping technique used by the team, are used for detailed surface mapping techniques.
Volcanic activity in the region is thought to have left 35 million years behind. At the same time, with a primitive reference to a literary revolution, the region is expected to present more data on ancient volcanic activity.
