Though there are a large number of people believe that incidents in Bermuda Triangle are caused by some paranormal & supernatural forces like UFO, Time Vortex, some unexplained evil sources even the mythical ‘Lost Continent of Atlantis’, but some independent theories, deep researches and some evidential record explain the possible realistic & scientific reasons behind this mystical events. In most of the cases culprit were human error, misjudgment & lack of knowledge of the region and terrible weather.

Bermuda triangle is not a small area, but it covers a very large area of Atlantic, almost 440,000 miles of sea. As per many researchers the events in this region are so much exaggerated and number of incidents in this huge area are almost similar to incidents happens in other parts of the ocean.

Major realistic theories explaining the mystery:

Compass Variation: In the Bermuda Triangle, it is one of two places on Earth where a compass will not point to magnetic north rather it points the true north and creates compass variation. This means that you need to calculate & adjust otherwise it will create confusion and you will end up off course. This situation actually happened to so many lost cases.

Gulf Stream: Gulf Stream is a surface current which springs up from Gulf of Mexico and flows through Florida into North Atlantic. Gulf Stream is one of the most significant reasons, that traces or debris of lost ships & planes in Bermuda Triangle never found. Gulf Stream runs near this region and debris carried away or engulfed by it.

Human Error: As per many reports, one of the main culprits of the infamous lost cases is human errors. Misjudgment, confusion, stubbornness caused so many crash & lost cases and disappearances.

Violent weather:  The weather sometimes becomes very violent in this tropical region. Many powerful storms, hurricanes, cyclones are reported every year in this area and caused many ship & aircraft wrecks.

Hexagonal Cloud & Air Bomb: From satellite images it is discovered that strange hexagonal clouds form in the Bermuda Triangle area. These clouds are capable of blasting winds at a terrible speed to the ocean below and can cause a turmoil & 50 feet high waves. Ships & planes trapped into this will be destroyed totally wrecked totally leaving no traces.

Electromagnetic field: For most disappearances it is believed that there is a strong electromagnetic field into this region which causes instrument malfunction and also creates a strong downward magnetic force into the ocean.

Methane Hydrates: A large field of Methane Hydrate into this region is another explanation for the disappearances. The huge gas source under the sea surface erupts and can form bubbles making water density very lower and the gas bubbles also blow out sometimes. For this decreased water density ships can easily sink like big rocks and planes flying over this region can caught fire and destroyed completely with the gas blowouts.

Above points explain the possible scientific reasons behind many disappearances in Bermuda Triangle. Still incidents in this region drew huge interest among people and its exaggerated mystic disappearances spread like fire and over the time it became one of the top mysteries of world.
