Scientists have deduced the dependence: the higher the sea level, the lower the volcanic activity on Earth.
There are vast and mysterious ecosystems in the depths of the ocean off the northwest coast of Australia. Until recently, they remained unexplored. But in mid-April 2021, a deep-sea research vehicle launched from the NIS Falkor ship descended to them. The expedition lasted 18 days, during which many photographs of previously unseen wonders were taken.
Unfortunately, their energy cannot be used, but underwater volcanoes can explain how life originated on earth and why it exists even where there is absolutely no light.
Is humanity significant from this point of view? There are 8 billion of us and our science is able to calculate the change in the ocean level if we all get into it at the same time.
When it turns out that a yachtsman is officially missing at sea, it is very useful to know when and where his ship sank. According to a new study, this information can be provided by shells growing on the wreckage.
Most of our planet is covered with water unsuitable for drinking. The world ocean covers 70% of the Earth's surface and accounts for approximately 97% of all water on the planet. On average, one liter of seawater contains 35 grams of salts (mainly sodium chloride). It seems like it's a little bit. However, it turns out that there are 35 million tons of salt in one cubic kilometer of the world ocean, and in total there are about 1,386,000,000 cubic kilometers in the ocean. So where did this salt come from?
In 2020, three researchers aboard a Chinese deep-sea submersible went to the deepest ocean trench on the planet. They broadcast their adventure live.
More recently, the SuBastian robot, which is capable of diving to a depth of 4.5 kilometers, shot an amazingly beautiful report about the inhabitants of the coral reefs of Australia, we offer to enjoy this beauty together.
The mantis shrimp is not just a beautiful colorful crustacean. There is a monstrous strength in her limbs. How, with the fastest strike on the seabed, does the mantis shrimp manage not to break its fist on the sturdy shells of the mollusks it devours?
Satellite observations could not resolve a long-standing dispute among scientists about whether the Gulf Stream mixes Atlantic waters or serves as a mechanical barrier to their penetration into each other, then American researchers went to the edge of the current to make their own measurements.
