CNN reports on potential of CTBTO’s hydroacoustic IMS data in detecting MH370 crash


CNN has posted a video on the latest developments in the search for flight MH370 that includes an interview with CTBTO hydroacoustic expert Mark Prior speaking on the potential for newly discovered signals to assist the search. According to the video, “A new potential lead, a sound that could have been the plane crashing, was detected by underwater microphones…. The United Nations’ Nuclear Test-Ban Organization has a network of 11 hydrophone stations that pick up many sounds, even ice breaking thousands of miles away in Antarctica.” Mark Prior noted, “It’s possible, but the circumstances that would allow it would have to be very particular.”
