Strange Planet Part Two

Following along in the last post about the wild world of water, let's see what other natural oddities our Earth has for us. There's a strange sound coming from the ocean, they're calling it a "Bloop." The earth is known for whistling caves, and plopping mud puddles, thunder and earth quakes, so we know the earth is one vocal creature. But the bloop is new, and as of yet unknown.

This is what we know:
"Although the sound matches the profile of a living animal, it is much louder than any known creature can produce. Any creature that could produce such a sound would have to be many times larger than the largest whale."

The story is here.

What do you think it is?

Shifting plates. Anomaly of nature.

Or is this another case of multiple creatures with little or no connection, working in unison, like the Emergence fireflies that synchronize their flashes ? The "creature's sound" could be thousands of smaller creatures then.

Sped up it sounds vaguely biological, but only because it's sped up.

Check a map - that area is deep ocean, with some sort of steep topography, frequented by icebergs and near the edge of a tectonic plate - the noise could be a mudslide, magma bubble, or even just a thousand tonnes of ice rolling over.
