Ученые объяснили Кровавый водопад в Антарктиде

Оказалось, что его вода может оставаться жидкой в условиях чрезвычайно холодного ледника.

Вода Кровавого водопада в Антарктиде зажата на глубине под ледником и имеет возраст более миллиона лет. Об этом говорится в новом исследовании ученых, описанных в журнале Journal of Glaciology.

Ледник Тейлор широко известен благодаря тому, что время от времени из него начинает течь вода ржавого цвета из-за наличия большого количества железа. Поэтому он и получил название «кровавый».

При помощи радара ученые смогли определить источник этой воды. Выяснилось также, что эта вода может оставаться жидкой в условиях чрезвычайно холодного ледника, что ранее считалось невозможным.

«Несмотря на то, что это звучит парадоксально, вода при замерзании отдает тепло, которое растапливает окружающий холодный лед. Ледник Тейлора считается самым холодным из тех, в которых течет жидкая вода», — рассказали авторы работы.

Известно, что ржавый цвет появляется от окислов железа, являющихся следствием уникального метаболического цикла.

Проанализировав химический и изотопный состав в потоках воды «Кровавого» ученые доказали, что это озеро,из которого он вытекает, заселено микроорганизмами.

Ранее из фотографий спутника NASA создали видео, которое показывает, как от антарктического ледника Пайн-Айленд откололся айсберг длиной примерно 3,6 километра. Авторы ролика сравнивают размеры айсберга с Манхэттеном.

  3. Howdy! This article couldn’t be written any better!
    Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I’ll send this article to
    him. Pretty sure he’ll have a very good read.

    I appreciate you for sharing!

  4. I would like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this web site. I’m hoping the same high-grade website post from you in the upcoming also. In fact your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own website now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings quickly. Your write up is a good example of it.

  5. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It?s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  6. I’m currently using a classic blogger template and I would like to know how you put an rss feed on it. Normally, blogger has an rss feed avaliable on the newer templates but my blog doesn’t have one. Also, is there some sort of widget I could also install for followers?.

  7. I think other website proprietors should take this web site as an model, very clean and great user friendly style and design, let alone the content. You’re an expert in this topic!

  8. I don’t see a prompt or indication about how to start writing a blog. I want to know how to initiate one. Thank you..

  9. Wow, awesome weblog layout! How lengthy have you been blogging for? you made running a blog look easy. The entire glance of your website is magnificent, let alone the content material!

  10. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  11. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of «neighbors» will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune «Social» is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
