Well, typically, the gravitational pull of the moon is responsible for the tides changing. So it would seem that either the moon has changed in some way or there is another body out there creating a similar effect and its matter exists in a wavelength we can't detect.

 Quoting: Simple27


This has continued to bother me since the last incident in Brazil/Chile/Uruguay. My friend in Uruguay said that, despite the oddness of it, there wasn't a lot of talk about it on mainstream news, etc. It was mentioned, but not emphasized and it was blamed on off-coast winds, as we read about here.

I never bought that explanation, and now here we are again and I still don't buy it.
 Quoting: KickinIt


I'm not buying the coastal winds theory either. It sounds less like a scientific explanation and more like something that's being said just to keep people calm.

I don't know a lot about the science behind it, but wouldn't coastal winds or sea breezes typically be blowing toward a land mass and be responsible for something more like a thunderstorm than the disappearance of the ocean? And how does the coastal winds idea explain the massive waves happening in Chile while the ocean disappears on the opposite side of the continent?

Based on my limited understanding, I'd say this phenomenon has something more to do with plate tectonics, specifically the movements of the South American and Nazca Plates and possibly the Cocos and Caribbean Plates. Again, I'm not entirely sure what I'm talking about, so please be kind if I'm totally off base here hf

Well, when it happened the first time(s) off the coasts of Chile, Uruguay and Brazil, the water came back within 24 hours I believe. So I don't know if this theory works, although otherwise I like it.

 Quoting: Use your brian, moran!


Personally, I'm not even counting the receding waters at some of the beaches during these past few hurricanes. There was an explanation for those and it made sense, except for the fact that it isn't a "regular" occurrence with hurricanes or everyone wouldn't have been so freaked out and wondering what the hell was going on. But I do tend to believe those were hurricane-related. These incidences in South America are not hurricane related and I look at them as completely separate phenomena.

This has continued to bother me since the last incident in Brazil/Chile/Uruguay. My friend in Uruguay said that, despite the oddness of it, there wasn't a lot of talk about it on mainstream news, etc. It was mentioned, but not emphasized and it was blamed on off-coast winds, as we read about here.

I never bought that explanation, and now here we are again and I still don't buy it.

I'm not buying the coastal winds theory either. It sounds less like a scientific explanation and more like something that's being said just to keep people calm.

I don't know a lot about the science behind it, but wouldn't coastal winds or sea breezes typically be blowing toward a land mass and be responsible for something more like a thunderstorm than the disappearance of the ocean? And how does the coastal winds idea explain the massive waves happening in Chile while the ocean disappears on the opposite side of the continent?

Based on my limited understanding, I'd say this phenomenon has something more to do with plate tectonics, specifically the movements of the South American and Nazca Plates and possibly the Cocos and Caribbean Plates. Again, I'm not entirely sure what I'm talking about, so please be kind if I'm totally off base here hf

I tend to lean towards your theory as well. I definitely don't buy coastal winds, though. It would have to be something more complex than that. And one thing I find curious is the location. It keeps happening in S. America.

Maybe an ocean sinkhole or crevasse opened up and drained it?

does it look like the wind is going over something coming out of the ocean?
