Clear air turbulence are areas a vacuum in the atmosphere caused by the jet stream which moves at speeds up to 200 knots per hour (Berlitz 85). This natural force cannot be detected by any present day technology (Berlitz 84). There are also electromagnetic problems in this area. Accident investigators believe this may be responsible for the disappearances (Kushe 13). This causes problems with the compass and any other feature that may deter a navigator. This isn't the only place on the world that causes these obscurities. Another place that shows these same problems is The Devil's Sea off the coast of Japan (Kushe 12). Some scientists believe that these places might have once been the location of one of the earth's magnetic poles that changed in prehistoric times (Kushe 267). Finally, the topography of the ocean floor varies from extensive shoals around the islands to some of the deepest marine trenches in the world (Rosenburg no. 6). With the interaction of the strong currents over the many reefs the topography is in a state of constant flux and development of new navigational hazards is swift (Rosenburg no. 6). On the date December 5, 1945, the largest and
