It is considered that the main distinctive feature of the lake water from sea and ocean is the absence of the salt. However, this is a common misconception. Actually there are salt lakes. But the fact that the lake is not connected to the oceans — this is the main difference from the seas.
The lake is a big bowl filled with water.
The deepest lake on Earth — lake Baikal.
But in Algeria there is a lake, which is called Ink. It with water as ink, can write on paper. The fact is that in this lake flow two rivers, the composition of the water which is such that, when combined, they turn into a liquid similar to ink.
But in Russia, in the Chelyabinsk region, there is a lake, where the water is saturated with soda. In this water you can easily wash without soap — all the spots “away” by themselves.
In Sicily there is a very dangerous lake, which is called ” lake of Death. It is dangerous for plants and animals. On its banks grows nothing, and any creature caught in its waters, dies. The fact is that on the bottom beat two sources of sulfuric acid, which poisons the water.
Did you know that the Dead sea — Continue reading
On the territory of Omsk region a lot of lakes (more than 16,000, including more than 250 salt), as well as wetlands. Each of them is unique. Salt lake is famous not only beautiful places, but its healing mud.
“. a dense birch forest, advancing from the South and East of Omsk, was often concealed in its lake with muddy shores and bottom, and the deaths have wandered in summer in the cattle pond (mud lake has sucking properties), the Scarecrow of local people and develop people’s imagination, reinforcing this lake a bad name and “Damn” name. ” from the book of doctor Korotkov E. V. (1924). Is the lake Salt other names: “the Bloody pit”, “Damn the tract”, “listen”. However, the notoriety and the horrific names are not prevented our ancestors to use the lake and “knowledgeable” a grandmother sent out to the treatments of their patients, treating horses and cattle (drove through the water and collapsing mud). The first scientific analysis of the composition of water and mud was carried out by Dr. United States in 1905. Later, in 1916, Omsk city laboratory, at the request of the doctor Lapteva V. P. made a more detailed examination. Based on the data of the medical Commission recognised a healing lake and reco La to create a resort on the shore “the more suburban location” Continue reading

Plastic everywhere. He is practical, durable and inexpensive. The ideal material. And continue to produce. That’s just the omnipresence of plastic creates a problem. Because this material currently can be found in frightening quantities where least wanted: in the oceans, all the rivers and lakes.
The so-called micro-plastic in the form of subtle particles everywhere in the water. As previously thought, the main consumers are the shellfish, fish and crustaceans, but as recently discovered by scientists – and the man himself.
The artificial particles is greater than zooplankton
Even in products such as honey and beer scientists revealed the presence of microplastics, will soon be investigated, and drinking water. It should be emphasized that this is done only now. Factories continue to produce tons of various synthetic materials. Not surprisingly, Continue reading
