The passage in the end found, however due to the Arctic ice was little suited to navigation. But the situation has changed in recent decades.

At first glance, the bright blue spots on a white sheet of Antarctica – a great illustration of the beauty of nature. However, scientists warn that melt ponds in abundance seen in the Antarctic are writing on the wall.
Almost 8000 dazzling blue lakes appeared on the glacier Langhovde in East Antarctica from 2000 to 2013. Newly appeared reservoirs may be a sign that the glacier is doomed. The same lake are observed in Greenland that melts at a much higher rate. Continue reading “In Antarctica, there was 8000 Lakes”

The place where the city was built, remained a mystery until the beginning of the millennium, when the British and French archaeologists from the Institute of Underwater Archaeology in Paris started a large-scale excavation in the Nile Delta, in a place called the harbor of Abu Kir.

The fourth largest glacier in the world, it covers an area equal to 55,000 square kilometers, it is twice more than a country like Belgium. Larsen C is rapidly destroyed. Experts studying the climate, and glaciologists warn that this glacier could suffer the fate of his predecessors – Glacier Larsen A, who disappeared 20 years ago and then lost in the Larsen glacier, its size – it is the US state of Rhode Island.
The melting of glaciers is directly linked to global warming and lead to unpredictable consequences – rising sea levels leads to increased evaporation of water and its condensation and is a harbinger of rain and powerful hurricanes. Continue reading “The glacier is rapidly destroyed Larsen”
Products for the legendary metal that has been used in Atlantis were brought to the surface off the coast of Sicily. The ship, which was carrying them, probably caught in a storm and sank at the time when about to enter the port. It was about 2600 years ago in the first half of the sixth century.
