We present to your attention 7 the cleanest lakes of the country.
Location: the South of Eastern Siberia, Irkutsk region.
The first in this list simply can not be called, this unique reservoir. Apart from the fact that it is the deepest (1700 m.), largest (more than 30 thousand sq. m.) the lake, it is also filled with very clean water.
To see the bottom at 20 meters depth do nothing! Its water has an unusual blue color, and even the ice when the lake freezes over, almost completely transparent! The purity of the water remains a mystery to modern scientists, the lake gradually gets covered with sludge, but not Baikal!
Some researchers suggest that the reason lies in the location of the reservoir — at the junction of tectonic plates — it is constantly updated with fresh groundwater, due to the movement of these plates.
The exact answer about the age of the lake, nor the purity of its water is not able to give one today, however, thanks to these inexplicable factors in the lake inhabited by such animals, which are not found in any other corner of our great planet.
Location: southern Urals, Chelyabinsk region.

Professor of Ankur Desai from the University of Wisconsin and his colleagues came to an unexpected conclusion: the increase in the temperature of atmospheric air in the summer has led to the fact that the speed of the winds blowing over the lake, has increased, reports Infox .
According to scientists, for the same reason, the increased speed and currents. Naturally, such changes could not but affect the inhabitants of the water.
While in sight of limnologen (Ostrovidov) managed to get only the phytoplankton. The scientists conducted their research since 1985. Based on data collected using three hydrological buoys and satellite imagery, Professor Desai and his colleagues have figured out what is going on with the Top.
According to scientists, the temperature in the surface layers of the lake during the summer period increased at a rate of 1.2°C in one decade. And the water heats up 15% faster than the air over the lake. “The fact that the temperature regime of a lake depends largely on the amount Continue reading
