Measuring the Greatest Ocean Depth
The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in Earth's oceans. In 2010 the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping measured the depth of the Challenger Deep at 10,994 meters (36,070 feet) below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of ± 40 meters. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by over one mile of water.
The first depth measurements in the Mariana Trench were made by the British survey ship HMS Challenger, which was used by the Royal Navy in 1875 to conduct research in the trench. The greatest depth that they recorded at that time was 8,184 meters (26,850 feet).
In 1951, another Royal Navy vessel, also named the "HMS Challenger," returned to the area for additional measurements. They discovered an even deeper location with a depth of 10,900 meters (35,760 feet) determined by echo sounding. The Challenger Deep was named after the Royal Navy vessel that made these measurements.
In 2009, sonar mapping done by researchers aboard the RV Kilo Moana, operated by the University of Hawaii, determined the depth to be 10,971 meters (35,994 feet) with a potential error of ± 22 meters. The most recent measurement, done in 2010, is the 10,994 meter ( ± 40 meter accuracy) depth reported at the top of this article, measured by the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping.
Scientists are just so useless they can't even go down to the deepest point of the ocean.....God the creator is all powerful...
Human are so ignorant and so limited..
Scientists just punch of ignorant and inventor of weapons of mass destruction.....they are good at killing human being....😋😊😋😉😁😀😆😎😎
The Mariana Trench is the deepest KNOWN point of the ocean. Most scientists agree it likely goes much, much deeper, as we’ve only explored about 5% of our ocean floors. Deep ocean exploration is incredibly dangerous, especially due to the huge amount of pressure.
That is wrong, you just said that this is how earth was made, earth was made from God, it just came out of nowhere, like Jupiter, Mars, Where did they came from? Nowhere, they just got there because of the blackhole. The blacj who is made first than earth and water itself, allso, if you didnt know, Earth used to be up-side-down, and scientists are wrong, that is right! Cuz if earth was made first then the blackhole, The blackhole WILL suck up earth by 1467
Why do we do things like go to the bottom of the ocean in 1960 and then never go back,the same with the moon,never go back,the technology’s soo much better now how come we could do it then but not now,wonder what they really saw !
The Quran on Deep Seas and Internal Waves:
God has said in the Quran:
Or (the unbelievers’ state) is like the darkness in a deep sea. It is covered by waves, above which are waves, above which are clouds. Darknesses, one above another. If a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it.... (Quran, 24:40)
This verse mentions the darkness found in deep seas and oceans, where if a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it. The darkness in deep seas and oceans is found around a depth of 200 meters and below. At this depth, there is almost no light (see figure 15). Below a depth of 1000 meters there is no light at all.1 Human beings are not able to dive more than forty meters without the aid of submarines or special equipment. Human beings cannot survive unaided in the deep dark part of the oceans, such as at a depth of 200 meters.
That was pretty boring I was saying the answers before you guys set him all of what you said was pretty obvious all I had to do is see the pictures of each side and it was obvious you guys get paid for this I'm an idiot
It's not a planet it's not 4.5 billion years old...and the greatest depths we know are not the deepest part of the world...there is parts so dense we an't go the great deep. No one has ever seen the Leviathan.
No wait theres the most dangerous deep meters the challenger deep it could kill you if you have a airtank and you run out of air if you hold your breath you will loose your breath from breathing and die
They want to send people to Mars to live there and create a life form, but the ocean isn't fully explored yet =.=. I hope it comes to scientists mind that maybe the ocean is the key to create life since the ocean is one of the reason why earth is unique and has life.
Haha Australia will come to the united states. Well mr scientist who will tell the people living then what happened now. Our civilization will disappear and people who will be living then will never know what we know now or may be we don't even know the bigger picture they will come to find it out.
2016 Workforce 100: Ranking the World’s Top Companies for HR.
American Express, which has made the list all three years, takes the top spot in this year’s list of top companies for HR.
To excel at everything from talent management to recruiting to benefits to diversity is not an easy task. To shine in those areas year after year is exemplary. Now in its third year, the Workforce 100 recognizes companies that excel in various areas of human resources during the course of the previous year. To determine which companies make the list, Workforce editors work with researchers from the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine’s research arm.
To find out which companies are the best for HR management, the research team created a statistical formula to shift through publicly available data on HR performance to separate the best from the rest. This year, to give employees more of a “say,” we’ve asked recruiting and job review website Glassdoor Inc. to provide data on what workers are saying about the companies that made our short list. From there, we combined that information with the public data available to create our 2016 Workforce 100 list.
American Express Inc. was the top company on this year’s list, and it has made the list all three years. Thirty-three other companies have also made all of the lists.
