    Off the coast of Florida, deep at the bottom of the ocean, are massive blue holes that formed thousands of years ago. What the unexplored holes contain has remained largely a mystery — but now, scientists want to change that.  Researchers are flocking to a 425-foot-deep "blue hole" off Florida's Gulf Coast next month in search of signs of life, among other things. The hole has been dubbed Green Banana. Green Banana is located about 155 feet below the water's surface, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). It was first discovered not by researchers or scientists, but by fishermen and recreational divers, and is similar to sinkholes found on land.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox...
    A mysterious “blue hole” at the bottom of the ocean is about to be explored by scientists. The aim is to discover what life forms can live inside this dark chasm that plummets to a depth of 425 feet below the seabed. The blue hole in question is called the “Green Banana.” It’s located off the coast of Florida on the continental shelf. The exploration of the Green Banana will be part of a three-year project that’s focussed on blue holes and their biodiversity. The NOAA-sponsored project will involve sending divers and monitoring equipment deep inside the hole. The researchers want to examine any microbes found in the hole as well as things like nutrient levels. A benthic lander used...

    An expedition off the coast of Florida will explore a mysterious sinkhole that extends 425 feet beneath the ocean floor. Next month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will explore the crevasse, an underwater sinkhole referred to as a 'blue hole', for the first time. The contents of blue holes are still fairly mysterious as are their frequency and typical location. According to the NOAA, their depth and structure can also make them difficult to access.  'Blue holes' like the Amberjack (pictured) have been the subject of previous studies and have been shown to contain a surprising array of biological diversity 'The opening of a blue hole can be several hundred feet underwater, and for many...
