Unique lake under the threat of Chokrak In Crimea, a lot of lakes, lake Chokrak is a very interesting object. But as point sources and scientists, this lake is under threat . A unique eco-system has formed in it a long time, the water in the lake was always very salty. In these unique circumstances just live beneficial bacteria, and the silt and mud thus also bring benefits to sick people.
But the last measurements of water showed that she was in the lake gradually loses its salt and becomes more fresh, it means one thing, mud lake Chokrak under threat of extinction. If the bacteria in them will die, it won’t be mud, regular mud.
Desalination occurs for a number of reasons, all linked to climate, with frequent rains in the region recently and the dam breaks.
Since the beginning of the last century and until the 1990-ies in the lake maintained optimal salinity. Later broke the dam and began a controlled erosion of the lake Continue reading
On the Crimean Peninsula between two seas Black and Azov has a large but quite shallow lake called the Sivash. Strictly speaking, it is not a lake at all, but rather a Bay of the Azov sea, which stretched for miles and miles. The source of the water of the Sivash only one – this is a Fine Bay, which is located near the town of Genichesk. In the summer months due to strong heat it dries quickly, because of this, the lake water is becoming saltier and saltier.
The system of Sivash lake – this combination of land and water, while the total area of the lake with pools, backwaters, creeks, underwater springs is 10 000 km². The share of “living” water accounts for only about 2 500 km². The lake is divided into two parts: the big East is called Sivagami less — Western Sivasami.
Salt lake wants to call a natural phenomenon. When the area of the lake is surprisingly shallow, its maximum depth – not more than 3 meters, mostly in the Sivash is not deeper than 0.5 to 1.0 m. of Course, the most important riches of the lake – this its salt and brine, which greatly benefit the human body, being the source of health. In the brine contains such Continue reading
In Australia there is one very amazing lake that affects everyone who sees it for the first time to its unique unusual water color. To add a bit of mystery to describe, say, what is the color, more characteristic of Flamingo – soft milky-pink.
The lake is located on one of the Islands in the South-Western area of the Australian continent. The island is named Average, and the lake itself is named Hiller. The area which it occupies, is very small. It is an oval with dimensions of only 600 meters by 250 meters.
For the first time this lake was discovered by the English expedition led by Matthew Flinders in 1802. The miracle of nature after its opening is not particularly attracted researchers, while the island until the early twentieth century served as a base for whaling ships from around the world.
In the early twentieth century in the lake district decided to develop a salt Deposit. But even the use of special equipment did not allow to achieve a high level of profitability, and production was closed very quickly. In addition, the color of the water scared away consumers who were not particularly eager to buy the salt produced from the lake of an unusual color. Tourists also do not particularly want to visit this place and the island is today only occasionally attracts some scientists, who could reveal the secret of the color of its water.
