Carolina Bay Anomalies

Carolina Bays are considered anomalies by many scientists.  The formation or cause of these oval, circular features has yet to be determined.

Site Anomaly Characteristics:

  • Depressed features on the landscape of the East coast of the US that have baffled scientists for years.
  • There have been many theories as to the formation of the “Carolina Bays” including a meteor strike that damaged the East coast yet no meteoritic evidence has ever been found around these circular features.

What was the purpose of this site?

  • The bays may be evidence of an agricultural practice of a bygone era that has been lost to history due to a population devastation.
  • The bays may have been human made lakes/ponds for storing water.  This theory also suggests those who were responsible for creating these features have been lost to history.

The following is a Google Earth map showing several of the bay areas in North Carolina.  There are many features like this all over the East coast that deserve further study and evaluation.
