They are steep, up to 30 meters high and last for a few minutes.
It was first discovered in 1997 off the coast of South Africa.
But British researchers sought to verify more accurately the theory via a pilot model. They designed a model for USS Cyclops, a huge US ship that disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 1918 with 306 people on board.
The researchers then experimented with the effect of "destructive waves" and found that they were indeed capable of destroying the ship.
"This region of the Atlantic Ocean is capable of recording three massive storms from different directions, creating favorable conditions for the emergence of destructive waves," says Simon Bauxal, a researcher of ocean and earth sciences.
The number of planes that crashed in the Bermuda Triangle is about 11, the last of which was in 2017, in addition to 9 ships, the last of which sank in 2015.
Two ground incidents occurred.
Incidents in the Triangle killed all 879 victims, of which only 18 survived.
