Are there any underground rivers under the ocean?

Are there any underground rivers under the ocean? Topic: Analyze research article
June 21, 2019 / By Obed
Question: I know of the existence of subterranean rivers, but is there a possibility that somewhere below the ocean there are untapped pools and rivers of fresh water? I just thought about it recently and a google search produced no accurate results. In response to Kenzie polega, the river Hamza flows underneath the Amazon forest and although I haven't read that it flows directly beneath it, there may be points where they coincide on the z plane.

There are indeed areas of magmatic water beneath some oceans although they are salty and acidic...look up hydrothermal vents which flow hot water at the sea floor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrotherma... And some evidence suggests the inner rocks of the earth may contain anywhere from 5-30 times as much water as all the oceans in the world combined. There are also large underground lakes under Beijing, China...called the Beijing anomaly... and areas of the Antarctic...Lake Vostok and others. And a large body of water sits below the Sahara desert....20 times the size of the Great Lakes combined. "Underlying more than two million square kilometres of land—about 20 times the area of North America’s Great Lakes—the Nubian aquifer is the world’s largest fossil water reserve. Experts estimate it holds up to 150,000 cubic kilometres of water, about 30 times more than the entire world uses today." http://www.iaea.org/Publications/Booklet... Lake Vostok... http://www.astrobio.net/pressrelease/730... "Inner Earth May Hold More Water Than the Seas March 7, 2002 Molten rocks deep in the earths interior may be surprisingly wet, Japanese researchers say. From lab experiments, they have concluded there may be more H2O deep underground than in all oceans, lakes, and rivers combined. " http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/03/0307_0307_waterworld.html http://www.underwatertimes.com/news.php?article_id=61034081952 "According to Smyth, models of the mantle's composition suggest that at the depths where wadsleyite is stable, between half and three-quarters of the material is the right stuff for making this mineral. "If the region between 400 and 525 kilometers were, say, 60 per cent wadsleyite, and that phase was saturated at 3·3 weight per cent, that's ten oceans of water," says Smyth. But Dan Frost, an experimental petrologist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington's Geophysical Laboratory in Washington DC, thinks the mantle could contain even more water. Frost says that solidified lava that has erupted at mid-ocean ridges contains glass that can be analyzed for water content. His research team has calculated how much water the lava's parent material in the mantle must have contained. "It ends up being between 100 and 500 parts per million," he says. And if the whole mantle contained 500 parts per million of water, Frost calculates that would be the equivalent of 30 oceans of water." http://ldolphin.org/deepwaters.html

I would probably say no. Because why would there be water under more water split up by sand and dirt.

Underground radio?...... When I think underground radio I think pirate radio..... Late friday and saturday nights be sure to tune around the FM band to see if you can find one.... They most likely won't have a station ID or at least a fake one...... The best place to look is usually around the lower end of the FM band between 88 to 91 MHZ.... That end of the band has lower powered college and public stations..... Its easier for them to broadcast a signal there without getting over powered by some megawatt top 40 station......

My local college radio (KCSS) plays a lot of underground music and hardly any pop music (which is what I like). Try looking for a radio station from a college around your area.
