Vortex is the proper term for a whirlpool that has a downdraft. In narrow ocean straits with fast flowing water, whirlpools are often caused by tides. Many stories tell of ships being sucked into a maelstrom, although only smaller craft are actually in danger. Large cataracts , such as Niagara Falls , produce strong whirlpools. The Maelstrom of Saltstraumen is earth's strongest maelstrom.
It is often witnessed by tourists. As navigation is dangerous in this strait only a short segment of time is available for large ships to pass through. Moskstraumen or Moske-stroom is an unusual system of whirlpools in the open seas in the Lofoten Islands off the Norwegian coast. The Corryvreckan is a narrow strait between the islands of Jura and Scarba , in Argyll and Bute , on the northern side of the Gulf of Corryvreckan , Scotland.
It is the third-largest whirlpool in the world. Though it was classified initially as non-navigable by the British navy it was later categorized as "extremely dangerous". A documentary team from Scottish independent producers Northlight Productions once threw a mannequin into the Corryvreckan "the Hag" with a life jacket and depth gauge. It is given the epithet "pig-like" as it makes a screeching noise when the vortex is at its full fury and reaches speeds of as much as During a whirlpool there caught student divers, resulting in fatalities.
This was not a naturally occurring whirlpool, but a man-made disaster caused by underwater drillers breaking through the roof of a salt mine. The lake then drained into the mine until the mine filled and the water levels equalized, but the formerly-ten-foot deep lake was now 1, feet deep. This mishap resulted in destruction of five houses, loss of nineteen barges and eight tug boats, oil rigs, a mobile home, trees, acres of land, and most of a botanical garden.
A crater 0. Nine of the barges which had sunk floated back. A more recent example of a man-made whirlpool that received significant media coverage occurred during early June , when an intake vortex formed in Lake Texoma , on the Oklahoma—Texas border, near the floodgates of the dam that forms the lake. At the time of the whirlpool's formation, the lake was being drained after reaching its highest level ever. The Army Corps of Engineers , which operates the dam and lake, expected that the whirlpool would last until the lake reached normal seasonal levels by late July.
Powerful whirlpools have killed unlucky seafarers, but their power tends to be exaggerated by laymen. However, temporary whirlpools caused by major engineering disasters can submerge large ships, like the Lake Peigneur disaster described above. Besides Poe and Verne, another literary source is of the s, Olaus Magnus , a Swedish bishop, who had stated that a maelstrom more powerful than the one written about in The Odyssey sucked in ships which sank to the bottom of the sea, and even whales were pulled in.
Pytheas , the Greek historian, also mentioned that maelstroms swallowed ships and threw them up again. The monster Charybdis of Greek mythology was later rationalized as a whirlpool, which sucked entire ships into its fold in the narrow coast of Sicily , a disaster faced by navigators.
During the 8th century, Paul the Deacon , who had lived among the Belgii, described tidal bores and the maelstrom for a Mediterranean audience unused to such violent tidal surges: . Not very far from this shore … toward the western side, on which the ocean main lies open without end, is that very deep whirlpool of waters which we call by its familiar name "the navel of the sea. I have heard a certain high nobleman of the Gauls relating that a number of ships, shattered at first by a tempest, were afterwards devoured by this same Charybdis. And when one only out of all the men who had been in these ships, still breathing, swam over the waves, while the rest were dying, he came, swept by the force of the receding waters, up to the edge of that most frightful abyss.
And when now he beheld yawning before him the deep chaos whose end he could not see, and half dead from very fear, expected to be hurled into it, suddenly in a way that he could not have hoped he was cast upon a certain rock and sat him down. Three of the most notable literary references to the Lofoten Maelstrom date from the nineteenth century. At the end of this novel, Captain Nemo seems to commit suicide, sending his Nautilus submarine into the Maelstrom although in Verne's sequel Nemo and the Nautilus were seen to have survived. In the 'Life of St Columba ', the author, Adomnan of Iona ', attributes to the saint miraculous knowledge of a particular bishop who sailed into a whirlpool off the coast of Ireland.
In Adomnan's narrative, he quotes Columba saying . Sitting in the prow, he lifts up his hands to heaven and blesses the turbulent, terrible seas. Yet the Lord terrifies him in this way, not so that the ship in which he sits should be overwhelmed and wrecked by the waves, but rather to rouse him to pray more fervently that he may sail through the peril and reach us here. The Nordic word itself is derived from the Dutch word maelstrom , modern spelling maalstroom , from malen to mill or to grind and stroom stream , to form the meaning grinding current or literally "mill-stream", in the sense of milling grinding grain.
