7 LAKE MOST EXTREME AND WEIRD WORLD


Lakes besides Lake Toba in Indonesia, apparently many lakes abroad is no less unique. The following will be presented 7 LAKE MOST EXTREME AND STRANGE IN THE WORLD. 


1. Jellyfish Lake

Jellyfish Lake is located on one of Palau's Rock Islands were formed about 12,000 years ago. Millions of jellyfish living in the lake, living through a symbiotic relationship with algae. El NiƱo events occur about once every decade tend to raise the temperature of the lake, and this can lead to the death of the jellyfish population.


2. Mono Lake, California, USA

Mono Lake, located near the California-Nevada border east of Yosemite Nat'l Park. Regarded as a "hypersaline" This lake has no outlet and evaporation over tens of thousands of years of concentrated salts and minerals whose levels are very high. Nevertheless, life thrives in Mono Lake - as much as 6 trillion brine shrimp alive that provide a food source for migratory birds.


3. Diego de la Haya, Costa Rica

Mount Irazu last erupted from 1963-1965, with the initial explosion coincided with the arrival of President John F. Kennedy 'in Costa Rica for a state visit. Very active volcano, having erupted 23 times since the first historian recorded major eruption in 1723.


4. Lake Nyos, Cameroon

Usually the "before and after" photos showed improvement in but that was not the case with Lake Nyos in Cameroon. Lake with greenish-yellow color proof of the deadly 1986 eruption of carbon dioxide that killed more than 1,700 people who died limp. Scientists believe that the submarine rockslide was a tricky balance pressure which store CO2 dissolved in the lake. After the formation of gas bubbles and increases, pressure decreases, as it appeared in the shaken soda bottle cap.


5. Lake Baikal, Russia

Lake Baikal is the queen lake, holding more fresh water than all the North American Great lakes combined! It is also the oldest lake in the world, 25 million years or more, and about 2,500 unique species (such as the Nerpa, or Baikal Seal) found around Lake Baikal - and nowhere else. Global warming threatens to change the environment of Lake Baikal, and the change is not a good thing for the unique plants and animals that live there. A rocky outcrop standing out from Olkhon Island on Lake Baikal symbolizes the rugged beauty and isolation echoed stunning lake which has 20 percent of the world's fresh water.


6. Loch Ness, Scotland, UK

Scottish lake Loch second-deepest, Loch Ness is estimated to hold more fresh water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined. Loch's good depth (754 feet) and the constant gloom (as peat around the ground) have contributed to the legend of the Loch Ness Monster. Some people say that sometimes it looks like a prehistoric plesiosaur floating to the surface of the lake.


7. Dead Sea, Israel / Jordan

The Dead Sea is a lake with some very peculiar characteristics. Such as Mono Lake and other hypersaline lakes, the Dead Sea has only one main entrance - the River Jordan - experiences minimal rainfall and has no outlet to evaporation. It is also very low: in 1385 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest dry land on earth. Step into the Dead Sea itself and you will find the deepest point 1240 feet below the surface.

Dead Sea water is more than 8 times as salty sea water, although salt in the ocean as much as 97 percent sodium chloride ... only 30.4 percent of Dead Sea salt is sodium chloride with potassium chloride remaining moderate, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and various bromides. With salt concentrations by an average of 33.7 percent, the Dead Sea unusually dense and thus allow people to float more easily because it had a natural buoyancy
