Sent to study the giant funnel (1 km in diameter), scientists have found 6 more similar soil failures. Researchers do not exclude that the craters can be much greater. All tectonic depressions are located in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District in northwest Siberia.


Scientists believe that the crater formed due to the melting of ground ice in the permafrost. The catalyst for the process may become the temperature rise due to global warming.


The phenomenon is similar to a volcanic eruption, the researchers explain. As soon as the ice melts, "the will" of methane. The gas pressurizes until until an explosion occurs, which leads to the formation of the funnel.
