The title of this article may seem rather strange, because the water in our understanding has always been a symbol of life. However, the errors of nature or careless of human activity has made some lakes in different parts of the planet into dangerous objects.
LAKE KIVU (CONGO)
The picturesque lake that is of interest to scientists around the world, due to the danger posed by this natural object. Under the layer of water stored huge deposits of carbon dioxide and methane formed by bacteria that turns the water body into a bomb with delayed action. Earthquake or volcanic activity will cause dangerous ingredients will mix and the lake will explode and this will lead to the deaths of around 2 million local residents.
Moon, as well as Kivu is volatile. Carbon dioxide emissions from the lake in 1984 resulted in the deaths of 37 people.
Near Mono lake Nwas, similar in the degree of its danger for all living things. Giant carbon dioxide emissions in 1986 led to the explosion of the lake and the deaths of several thousand local residents as a result of poisonous gas. The lake is dangerous and now, a minimal shift of the earth’s crust and volcanic activity can lead to a new explosion Continue reading
Clear lakes with water lilies, Lotus flowers and fish on the site of former marshes and landfills. Amur farmer restores natural landscape and abandoned for years on contaminated territories.
Hard to believe that on the spot scenic area was a real dump. Roman Matuza, settling with his family here 4 years ago, the garbage disposal didn’t stop. With an excavator created near the house of the lake, when he reached deep water. Then engaged in useful plants.
“The properties of calamus are very unique, he phytoncid, that is kills all bacteria. The rhizomes of this plant was given to the boys that they were smart and the girls that they were beautiful. That is, all the kids always dried rhizomes as a pacifier, savored,” says the farmer.
Also on the lake now have water chestnut, water Lily, balticvent, Calla. The Lotus survives. Grew all this beauty from one or two seedlings collected in other scenic areas of the Amur region.
“We have a dream that Lotus will dominate, because Lotus gives large flowers. But I would also like to keep a variety. There will be more Lotus-lilies. To have a little of everything. For us good diversity: what we can on the lake, on the site to take any quantity of organic material, planting materials,” says Roman Matuzo.
Now Roman is going to elevate another lake, created Continue reading
Lakes are unique objects of nature, its monument. Their full name — Ubejische Salty mud of the lake.
They are remnants of the ancient Sarmatian sea lagoons, of the Gulf that existed about 6 million years ago. Wide valley, in which there are Large and Small Salt lakes, geologically, are reset. An impervious layer of marine lakes are bluish-gray clay verhneuralskogo time (about 4 million years) with high plastic properties. This clay is preserved only in depressions, such as described, and is the deposition of the Sarmatian sea lagoons.
The lakes are on the territory of the Cold-Bakinskogo forestry, in 25 km from Armavir, 12km from the farm No. 32, located in the North-Eastern outskirts of Armavir, near H. Kosyakino. Travel to the lakes by bus from the bus station (not to be confused with the bus station!) Armavir message “Armavir—Komakino”.
Currently information about how the lakes are used for educational purposes, lectures on geomorphology of the area, the history of natural monuments, the scientific staff of the Museum of Armavir.
Other possible topics of excursions: at the entrances of groups of tourists in the lake district it is possible to show evidence of the evolution of major geographic features (lakes), geological structures, influence of anthropogenic Continue reading
