Mysterious sound from the Arctic seafloor baffles Canadians.

Canadian Military investigates mysterious sound from the bottom of the the Hecla and Fury Strait – a narrow channel of water in Nunavut. Sometimes sounds like a beep, a ping, or a hum, the sound is scaring away animals.

Located right up north, next to Greenland, the area is the newest, largest, and least populous territory of Canada. A government official said the noise was “emanating from the seafloor.” Nobody seems to know where the sound comes from.

A spokesperson explains:

“The Department of National Defence has been informed of the strange noises emanating in the Fury and Hecla Strait area, and the Canadian Armed Forces are taking the appropriate steps to actively investigate the situation.”
