Freshwater lake Secret
Freshwater lake The Arctic ocean freshwater lake formation
20 million years ago, arctic ocean
Only is a large freshwater lake, the lake is a narrow path through the inflow of the Atlantic. Then 18 million 200 thousand years ago, due to plate motion, the narrow channels gradually become wide the Atlantic Strait, the sea started flowing into the arctic circle
Slowly, the formation of today's Arctic ocean. Scientists analyzed the Arctic seabed sediment collected from 2004 after the conclusion. In the new period " natural
"Magazine, Sweden Stockholms universitet
Martin Jackson et al reported that they are near the north pole Lomonosov ridge from the central Arctic ocean sediment collected 428 meters thick, which is especially important for a period of 5.6 meters thick. Jackson said, the precipitate formed 18 million 200 thousand years ago to 17 million 500 thousand years ago, is divided into three sections of different colors, the lower is the black precipitate containing no organic matter decomposition, indicating that the Arctic ocean floor doesn't get enough oxygen to degradation.
Jackson said, from 18 million 200 thousand years ago, connected to the Arctic Ocean and the Atlantic Strait (in ferme Greenland
Between) begins to widen, "we think (then) fresh water from the Arctic water outflow, while the heavier water inflow from below, these anoxic seawater leads to the formation of a black precipitate.
With the expansion of ferme Strait, the sea started from the water into the Arctic Ocean, they absorb oxygen to sink to the bottom, so the bottom began to oxygen and marine organisms, the corresponding sediment is grey. Finally, the Arctic ocean freshwater all replaced with seawater, began to appear at the bottom of the sea Ferric oxide
, Manganese oxide
And Marine Biology Fossil
Swedish scientists say they are not sure of the exact time of the formation of the Arctic Ocean, but this process may have experienced about 750 thousand years.
Freshwater lake Lake Baikal freshwater lake
Lake Baikal has many mysteries. For example, a little salty water, that is to say it is not communicated with the ocean, but live out of marine organisms. Seals
. And as the Lake Baikal long tropical creatures, like Lake Baikal moss of animal insect, its close relatives live in India lake, Leech Lake Baikal
See Chinese in freshwater lake to the south of Lake Baikal. Clam
There are only. The Balkans
The Aokelide Lake
And the most interest to scientists, and is very much puzzled a lot of real life, Baikal sea creatures, such as seals, Shark
Conch, etc., which is unusual in Lake Baikal. The world's only freshwater lake, Lake Baikal Lake bushy jungle, sponge, sponge is also a strange lobster.
However, people still do not understand, Lake Baikal
The lake is not a bit salty, why is life so many "marine life"? In this regard, the scientists made speculations.
Initially, some scientists believe that the geological history of Lake Baikal and is connected to the sea, marine organisms are from the ancient ocean into Lake Baikal. The former Soviet scientist Ville Natsu Kim believes that this is the result of changes in the earth's crust. He according to the biological and geological aspects of the material that the Mesozoic Jurassic Period
The east of Lake Baikal, there had been a vast Baikal
The sea. Later, due to crustal movement, leaving the Inland Lake - Lake Baikal. With the rain, the water adding salt to fresh, but now the "marine" was Regression
When left to the. Sea creatures come from
The last century the beginning of the 50s, people in the vicinity of Lake Baikal to dig deep Well drilling
. But from taking up core samples, people did not find any thing about the mesozoic. There is some evidence that there are no deposits of Mesozoic Cenozoic sedimentary rocks, only. The Lake Baikal area has been long time since land. Lake Baikal is in the Crustal fracture
Activities in the form of Fault Lake
The lake, thus negating the marine organisms are regressive left view.
Scientists have been exploring the Lake Baikal before, that is "North Sea", after the occurrence of crustal movement
It is surrounded by high mountains, uplift, the relative decline of the lake was formed. Later, around many of the rivers flowing into the lake, gradually dilute the lake, making it as a freshwater lake, over the sea of history. Most of the original life in marine organisms in the sea, in the transformation of Lake Baikal into a freshwater lake in the process of extinction. However, some strong animal survival ability, slowly adapted to the freshwater environment, become the world's unique freshwater animal, such as baikal seal
Some scholars think that, Lake Baikal
Marine animal in freshwater, originally living in the ocean, after is not satisfied with the marine life, enter The Yenisei River
, and continuously to the upper reaches of the river, finally arrived at the Lake Baikal, gradually accustomed to living in fresh water, reproduce, they formed a "marine animal in freshwater lakes".
Then, the "marine" where does it come from? How do they enter the lake? Two versions of the scientific community although not conclusive, but which one do you think is more reasonable? In any case, we always believe that with the development of science and technology and people's understanding of nature deeply, the mystery will be brought to a satisfactory answer.

North West Co in Grand portage (Grand Portage), Nipigon, Peake, Su River and river Miqipiketan Mary to set up offices. But in 1821, because the competition resulted in a huge loss, so the North West Co was incorporated into Hudson Bay Company.
