 Ruins in the Gulf of Cambay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On May 19, 2001, India's science and technology minister Murli Manohar Joshi announced the finding of what was reported to be "the remains of an ancient city" on the seabed of the Gulf of Cambay (also known as the Gulf of Khambat), along a nine-kilometer stretch off the coast of Gujarat province.
This raises the possibility that the extremely old samples, as argued for many other "artifacts" recovered from the Gulf of Cambay, are not man-made artifacts or potsherds, but rather concretions, nodules, and related objects of natural origin [3].

 Gulf Of Cambay - LoveToKnow 1911
GULF OF CAMBAY, an inlet in the coast of India, in the Gujarat division of Bombay.
It is supposed that the depth of water in this gulf has been decreasing for more than two centuries past.
It is, however, an important inlet, being the channel by which the valuable produce of central Gujarat and the British districts of Ahmedabad and Broach is exported; but the railway from Bombay to Baroda and Ahmedabad, near Cambay, has for some time past been attracting the trade to itself.

The inundation maps prepared by Dr.Glen Milne of Durham University, England clearly shows that the Gulf of cambay area prior to 7600 BP was mostly land and after 6900 BP it is mostly submerged.
In the Gulf of Cambay itself various surveys have picked up fault zones and earthquake affected areas with throws upto as much as 30m (elevation and depression).
The ancients after the catastrophe and submergence in the Gulf of Cambay appear to have spread out all over Gujarat and then to the surrounding areas to establish a continuing and evolving civilization of Harappan type.

 Glenn Milne's Model To Date Sunken Cities of Cambay - TRUTH IS GOD
Since Cambay is a tectonically active area, we have to keep tectonics in mind when using Glenn Milne's sea-level model to estimate the minimum age of the Cambay cities.
The map for 7,700 years ago showed the gulf to be dry land, whereas the map for 6,900 years ago showed it to have been flooded by the Indian Ocean, creating the gulf that we recognize today.
Thirdly, in the absence of direct information on tectonics in the Gulf of Cambay, we felt that the date of 7,000 years was perhaps not excessively conservative.

Having discovered indications of a possible settlement earlier in 2001, NIOT scientists undertook a confirmatory survey in November 2001 in the Gulf of Cambay area, by using advanced marineunderwater survey techniques with side-scan sonar and sub-bottom profiler.

As in-situ data suggest, the tidal SSH is greatly amplified in the Gulf of Cambay and the Gulf of Kutch.
From the topography of the Arabian Sea (Figure 8), amplification of tides may be expected in regions such as the Bay of Cambay, and Gulf of Kutch, which are not only shallow, but are shaped in such a way as to funnel tidal energies.
The observed coamplitudes in the Bay of Cambay range from 0.6 m at the mouth of the bay, to over 1.8 m inshore and this is well-represented by the model.

Accordingly, papers were presented on geoarchaeology in the Gulf of Cambay and its environs, geochronology, the use of remote sensing in underwater archaeology, the paleo climate of the Gulf of Cambay region, the sedimentation process, and the geological evolution of the Cambay Basin.
The Gulf of Cambay extends over 3000 sq km in the state of Gujarat, with the rivers Narmada, Tapi, Sabarmati and Mahi draining into it.

 Artifacts or Geofacts?
Similarly, small objects such as spoons and beads could very be introduced into the Gulf of Cambay by either shipwrecks or the backflow of cyclonic storm surge and redistributed around the bay by tidal currents.
Although these storms fail to generate geostrophic currents within the Gulf of Cambay, the backflow of the storm surge after the storm has passed creates a temporary movement of water from the land into the gulf.

These are objects which occur naturally, but which appear to have been manufactured, because of their symmetry, regularity, etc. For example, check out these objects found in the Gulf of Cambay.
