Scientists found a huge freshwater stock under the ocean


It is located under thickness of salty water of the Atlantic Ocean and stretches for 350 kilometers. Authors of a new research found a huge freshwater stock under thickness of water of the Atlantic Ocean, near the northeast coast of the United States. Writes LivesSience about it. Though the exact size of a water supply still remains a riddle, it can be the largest in own way, occupying the territory stretching for 350 kilometers. The area includes the coast of New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. This aquifer may contain about 2800 cubic kilometers of slightly salty water. Reserves of this water are not neogenic. Researchers assume that the most part of this water belongs to the last Ice Age. Scientists received the first hints on the fact that under the ocean there is a freshwater stock, in the 1970th years when the companies extracting oil at the coast sometimes received instead of it fresh water. But it was not clear whether these deposits of fresh water the isolated centers were or they covered big spaces. The analysis showed that fresh water was not scattered, and occupied extensive space, beginning from the coastline and stretching on the continental shelf. Earlier it was reported that scientists predicted the future methane accident which is inevitable. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
