Long ago scientists discovered in the lake Kliluk a large concentration of various minerals. Here are found large deposits of sulfates of sodium, calcium, magnesium and eight more needed and useful minerals. In smaller amounts found are silver and titanium.
Spots on the lake formed in summer, when the heat from the lake evaporates large quantities of water. The remaining “puddles” is highly saturated with salts. Color “puddles” – green. white, yellow, blue … depends on what mineral is in it prevails. Magnesium sulfate forms a so-called “coast-tracks” around the spots.
For indigenous people, the Indians, the lake itself and the area around it is sacred. This place holds many different events Continue reading

Large, medium and small lakes are part of the flow and often form lake-river systems, connected by rivers and canals. The flowage lakes is a positive one for living in them fish, because it reduces the likelihood of a fish kill caused by lack of oxygen in water in the winter.
The depth of the lakes that are important in fish life is quite varied. The greatest depths are typical for large lakes: Ladoga (260 m), Onega (120 m), Segozero (97 m). On small lakes depths usually do not exceed 3-5 m Deep places often alternate with underwater rocky bottom or shoals, called Lud.

According to statistics, on Earth there are about 5 million lakes.

They can happen strange chemical reactions, but also to emerge of abnormal create, which you will not find anywhere else.
Some lakes are places of catastrophic events in history, such as falling meteors or volcanoes while others keep the ancient secrets or unique geological formations.

Recently, researchers at brown University decided to conduct an unusual study and calculate how much water could be near the Martian volcano Arsia Mons. According to them, the heat of a volcano under a huge glacier in the relatively recent past contributed to the formation on the red planet, large lakes filled with water. And as you know, where there’s water, there may well be life.
According to the researchers, in the recent past, Arsia Mons, a volcano on Mars may have been the source for the existence of life. Scientists found that the glacier was located at the foot of the volcano. This is indicated by the grooved area in the foreground. According to experts, the eruption occurred on the territory of the ice cover, so in the end, the melting ice may form lakes of liquid water.
It should be noted that Arsia Mons is the tallest volcano on the red planet, and also one of the largest mountains in the Solar system. Its height exceeds the height of mount Everest almost twice. In the recent past the slopes of this giant volcano on Mars covered monolithic ice.
The analysis of the topography of the volcano, scientists have found that 210 million Continue reading
