Cubes of salt washed up on the shore in the Deadsea (Israel Dead sea, Deadsea) Dead sea (from wikipedia): also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east, and Palestine and Israel to the west. near Jerusalem. Its surface and shores are 427 metres (1,401 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 306 m (1,004 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Vanda in Antarctica (35%), Lake Assal (Djibouti) (34.8%), Lagoon Garabogazköl in the Caspian Sea (up to 35%) and some hypersaline ponds and lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond (44%)) have reported higher salinities. It is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 15 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. The Dead Sea seawater has a density of 1.240 kg/L, which makes swimming similar to floating." dead seas near Jerusalem halite phenomenon (from wikipedia): "commonly known as rock salt, is the mineral form of sodium chloride (NaCl). Halite forms isometric crystals. The mineral is typically colorless or white, but may also be light blue, dark blue, purple, pink, red, orange, yellow or gray depending on the amount and type of impurities. It commonly occurs with other evaporite deposit minerals such as several of the sulfates, halides, and borates" - more in wikipedia view more interesting videos like : "15 Craziest Natural Phenomena on Earth" "Ice Balls forming along Lake Michigan near Glen Arbor" "2014 WHAT IS GOING ON?

Floating in the Dead Sea ...You Can't Sink!
 
03:04
The Dead Sea (Hebrew: יָם הַמֶּלַח, Yam ha-Melah, "Sea of Salt", also Hebrew: יָם הַמָּוֶת, Yam ha-Mavet, "The Sea of Death", and Arabic: البحر الميت‎‎ About this sound Al-Bahr al-Mayyit (help·info)), also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west. Its surface and shores are 429 metres (1,407 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean, and one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometers (31 mi) long and 15 kilometers (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea water has a density of 1.24 kg/liter, which makes swimming similar to floating. Biblical period- Dwelling in caves near the Dead Sea is recorded in the Hebrew Bible as having taken place before the Israelites came to Canaan, and extensively at the time of King David. Just northwest of the Dead Sea is Jericho. Somewhere, perhaps on the southeastern shore, would be the cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis which were said to have been destroyed in the time of Abraham: Sodom and Gomorra (Genesis 18) and the three other "Cities of the Plain", Admah, Zeboim and Zoar (Deuteronomy 29:23). Zoar escaped destruction when Abraham's nephew Lot escaped to Zoar from Sodom (Genesis 19:21-22). Before the destruction, the Dead Sea was a valley full of natural tar pits, which was called the vale of Siddim. King David was said to have hidden from Saul at Ein Gedi nearby. In Ezekiel 47:8-9 there is a specific prophecy that the sea will ".. be healed and made fresh", becoming a normal lake capable of supporting marine life. A similar prophecy is stated in Zechariah 14:8, which says that "Living waters will go out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea (likely the Dead Sea) and half to the western sea (the Mediterranean)..." Greek and Roman period- Aristotle wrote about the remarkable waters. The Nabateans and others discovered the value of the globs of natural asphalt that constantly floated to the surface where they could be harvested with nets. The Egyptians were steady customers, as they used asphalt in the embalming process that created mummies. The Ancient Romans knew the Dead Sea as "Palus Asphaltites" (Asphalt Lake). King Herod the Great built or rebuilt several fortresses and palaces on the western bank of the Dead Sea. The most famous was Masada, where in 70 CE a small group of Jewish zealots fled after the fall of the destruction of the Second Temple. The zealots survived until 73 CE, when a siege by the X Legion ended in the deaths by suicide of its 960 inhabitants. Another historically important fortress was Machaerus (מכוור), on the eastern bank, where, according to Josephus, John the Baptist was imprisoned by Herod Antipas and died. Also in Roman times, some Essenes settled on the Dead Sea's western shore; Pliny the Elder identifies their location with the words, "on the west side of the Dead Sea, away from the coast ... [above] the town of Engeda" (Natural History, Bk 5.73); and it is therefore a hugely popular but contested hypothesis today, that same Essenes are identical with the settlers at Qumran and that "the Dead Sea Scrolls" discovered during the 20th century in the nearby caves had been their own library. Josephus identified the Dead Sea in geographic proximity to the ancient Biblical city of Sodom. However, he referred to the lake by its Greek name, Asphaltites. Various sects of Jews settled in caves overlooking the Dead Sea. The best known of these are the Essenes of Qumran, who left an extensive library known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The town of Ein Gedi, mentioned many times in the Mishna, produced persimmon for the temple's fragrance and for export, using a secret recipe. "Sodomite salt" was an essential mineral for the temple's holy incense, but was said to be dangerous for home use and could cause blindness. The Roman camps surrounding Masada were built by Jewish slaves receiving water from the towns around the lake. These towns had drinking water from the Ein Feshcha springs and other sweetwater springs in the vicinity. Byzantine period- Intimately connected with the Judean wilderness to its northwest and west, the Dead Sea was a place of escape and refuge. The remoteness of the region attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Byzantine era. Their monasteries, such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert, are places of pilgrimage.
Dead Sea (Ezekiel) Prophecy Fulfilled ! Israel News! Fish swimming along Dead Sea's shores!
 
09:36
“And it shall come to pass in that day that living waters shall go out from Yerushalayim: half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter shall it be.” Zechariah 14:8 (The Israel Bible™) Then said he unto me: ‘These waters issue forth toward the eastern region and shall go down into the Arabah; and when they shall enter into the sea into the sea of the putrid waters the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass that every living creature wherewith it swarmeth whithersoever the rivers shall come shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come thither that all things be healed and may live whithersoever the river cometh. Ezekiel 47:8-9 (The Israel Bible) Almost ten times saltier than the ocean, nothing can live in the Dead Sea’s hyper-saline environment – Or so scientists thought until recently. Scientific research has proved the existence of life at the bottom of the sea, but due to a unique set of circumstances, signs of life have begun appearing on its very shores, precisely as it is written in the Book of Prophets in the Bible. A young woman on a nature hike was shocked recently when she discovered freshwater ponds with fish on the shores of the Dead Sea. Samantha Siegel, a Jewish woman living in Jerusalem, often takes trips to the desert and the ancient body of water. On a recent visit, she encountered an incongruous sight with powerful implications: a prophecy appearing before her eyes that seemed to contradict the laws of nature....

The Dead Sea also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. Its surface and shores are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, Earth’s lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 33.7% salinity, it is also one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Assal (Djibouti), Garabogazköl and some hypersaline lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond) have reported higher salinities. It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River.

New Dead Sea Scroll Cave Found with New Scroll Evidence

Excavations in a cave on the cliffs west of Qumran, near the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, prove that Dead Sea scrolls from the Second Temple period were hidden in the cave, and were looted by Bedouins in the middle of the last century. With the discovery of this cave, scholars now suggest that it should be numbered as Cave 12.

First Scientific Diving Expedition at the Dead Sea
 
02:47
BGU researchers have today that they have discovered deep springs on the floor of the Dead Sea, which provide fresh water to the rapidly dwindling lake. Meanwhile, a parallel study by German researchers has found new forms of life growing around the fissures in the sea floor. The Dead Sea is shrinking as the water level drops at an alarming rate -- about a meter a year. Israeli and German scientists have been researching groundwater springs which discharge from the sea floor to understand the impact of this process on this unique ecosystem. While the existence of springs has been known for decades as people observed ripples on the surface, the scientists have discovered deep springs not visible from shore.

Dead Sea drying up IGEO TV]
 
03:18
The Dead Sea dries, lowering its level at a speed of 0.8-1.2 m per year. The reasons for this phenomenon has been accentuated in recent years are mainly the lack of rainfall and high temperatures and population growth, which brings the flow diversion of the Jordan River with the creation of aqueducts and reservoirs, like the National Aqueduct of Israel. This has led to the creation of wells on the shores of the Dead Sea and the lowering of its level (de-394m in 1960 to -423 in 2012), reducing its area a third of the original. The shuffling solution for this phenomenon is the creation of the Peace Canal, which would provide the necessary water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, measuring 180 miles long and 2 meters high. If it will not put any remedy, it is predicted that in 39 years it can dry completely. http://igeo.tv/ Watch Video Syria, International Armed Conflict: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RzvCYF1eT8 Igeo TV en español: ver videos, agencia de noticias y venta de metraje en: http://www.youtube.com/user/igeotv

For more info on downloading and ordering our full dome shows, visit http://spaceupdate.com/planetarium_shows.php or http://www.eplanetarium.com/ SHOW DESCRIPTION: Secrets of the Dead Sea is a full-dome documentary, filmed at the Dead Sea and from space with historical and astronomical animations. In this show, the Dead Sea comes alive through stories preserved in its cliffs and caves - and in the stars overhead. Ancient scrolls chronicle the passage of time by motions of the sun and moon, while rock and sand preserve a living record of a place as timeless as the star patterns above. Secrets of the Dead Sea tells the story of this timeless place through its history, religion, astronomy and geology. Long ago plates in the Earth's crust pulled apart and formed a rift valley stretching from Syria to Mozambique. The Dead Sea is the lowest point of this valley. In more recent times, when Judea fell to the Romans, we can imagine scribes and scholars rushing to hide their precious scrolls in the cliffs overlooking the Dead Sea's northern shore. Carefully they closed up the caves, hiding any evidence of the scholarly treasure within. Now this delicate ecosystem is threatened by irrigation projects that shrink the sea and lower the water table below. Secrets of the Dead Sea is dedicated to the courage of the Columbia Crew of STS 107, including Ilam Ramon, Israel's first astronaut. While orbiting above the Dead Sea in the Space Shuttle, Col. Ramon carried a Torah scroll, the book of Psalms. He saw hope and a vision for the future when he said, "The world looks marvelous from up here, so peaceful, so wonderful and so fragile."

Bible Museum says five of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake
 
03:22
A US Bible museum has removed fragments of. what it believed were part of the Dead Sea Scrolls from display, after tests suggested they were forgeries. The Museum of the Bible, in Washington DC, sent five of its 16 fragments for analysis in Germany. But results showed characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin, the museum said. Costing $500m , the museum was opened by Evangelical Christian. and billionaire Steve Green in 2017. The Dead Sea Scrolls are a set of ancient manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible. The first of the scrolls were found in caves in Qumran. on the western shore of the Dead Sea in 1947. They were reportedly first discovered by. a young Bedouin shepherd searching for lost sheep. The tests were ordered after biblical scholars. who examined 13 of the museum's previously unstudied fragments said. there was a high probability that a number of them were modern forgeries. The museum's chief curatorial officer, Jeffrey Kloha, said that he had hoped the "testing would render different results". However, he added: "This is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artefacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency," It is not the first time the museum's owners have faced controversy. Last year, Mr Green's company the Hobby Lobby paid a $3m fine and returned thousands of items after the US Department of Justice accused it of smuggling artefacts from Iraq. Dead Sea Scrolls are ancient Jewish religious, mostly Hebrew, manuscripts found in the Qumran Caves in the West Bank near the Dead Sea. Many thousands of written fragments have been discovered in the Dead Sea area. They represent the remnants of larger manuscripts damaged by natural causes or through human interference, with the vast majority only holding small scraps of text. However, a small number of well-preserved, almost intact manuscripts have survived – fewer than a dozen among those from the Qumran Caves. Researchers have assembled a collection of some 981 different manuscripts – discovered in 1946/47 and in 1956 – from 11 caves. The 11 Qumran Caves lie in the immediate vicinity of the Hellenistic-period Jewish settlement at Khirbet Qumran in the eastern Judaean Desert, in the West Bank. The caves are located about one mile west of the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, whence they derive their name. Scholarly consensus dates the Qumran Caves Scrolls from the. last three centuries BCE and from the first century CE. Bronze coins found at the same sites form a series beginning with. John Hyrcanus and continuing until the period of the First Jewish–Roman War , supporting the radiocarbon and paleographic dating of the scrolls.

For millennia, the salty, mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea have drawn visitors and health pilgrims to its shores. But in recent years, Sinkholes have been opening up without warning along its banks, The Dead Sea is famous for is extreme salinity (34 percent salt, almost 10 times as salty as the ocean), and for having the lowest elevation on Earth, at 429 meters below sea level. But for the past few decades, the sea has been shrinking rapidly, due to the diversion of water from the Jordan River (which feeds the Dead Sea) , the evaporation and mineral mining from its waters in the south. The water's surface is currently receding by about 1 m per year. This short video can be viewed from above in the western region of the Dead Sea and enjoy the stunning views showing the results fall in the water level of the Dead Sea and the formation of sinkholes.

The Ein Qedem hot saline springs system is the most significant brine source that discharges from the alluvial aquifer along the western shore of the Dead Sea, possibly even affecting the composition of the nearshore Dead Sea brine. The Ein Qedem solution comprises a Ca-chloride brine with half the salinity of the Dead Sea (~190 g·L-1 compared to 340 g·L-1, respectively) and maximum temperature of 46°C. Assuming a geothermal gradient of 19°C km-1, the Ein Qedem solution ascends rapidly from a depth of at least 950 m. The springs were found to migrate eastward together with the coastline as the Dead Sea level declines, implying a good hydraulic connection between the thermal springs and the Dead Sea. Based on past and new analyses, the chemical composition of Ein Qedem brine remained virtually uniform for at least the last 40 years, suggesting that Ein Qedem brine is derived from a very large groundwater reservoir. Its chemical composition however does not represent a simple mixture between DS and meteoric water, and reflects a more complex history. The origin of the saline springs was suggested to represent an earlier stage in the evolution of the Dead Sea brine, e.g., its predecessor Lake Lisan from the last Ice Age. It appears that the early EinQedem brine penetrated the adjacent aquifer at the time when the lake level rose, at around 25 ka B.P. and was isolated there from interaction with the lake’s solution. The recharged brine sank to a depth of at least 1 km depth, where it was heated. The heated brine probably began rising to the surface along the marginal faults when lake level started to decline.

Dead Sea Scrolls - Touring Israel
 
01:07
The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of 981 texts discovered between 1946 and 1956 at Khirbet Qumran in the West Bank. They were found inside caves about a mile inland from the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, from which they derive their name.Nine of the scrolls were rediscovered at the Israel Antiquities Authority in 2014, after they had been stored unopened for six decades following their excavation in 1952. The texts are of great historical, religious, and linguistic significance because they include the earliest known surviving manuscripts of works later included in the Hebrew Bible. The texts are written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Nabataean, mostly on parchment but with some written on papyrus and bronze. The scrolls have traditionally been identified with the ancient Jewish sect called the Essenes, although some recent interpretations have challenged this association and argue that the scrolls were penned by priests in Jerusalem, Zadokites, or other unknown Jewish groups. www.maranathatours.com

The Dead Sea Scrolls-קומראן Qumran - The Dead Sea Israel
 
03:36
Qumran- Home of the writers of the Dead Sea Scrolls - uncovering of the remains of the settlement of , on the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, and the Dead Sea Scrolls found nearby, ignited the imagination of both Jews and Christians. In addition to the oldest copies of the Hebrew Scriptures ever found and scrolls pertaining to the ancient community known as the Yahad, numerous other objects depict the daily life and way of thinking of the Qumran's inhabitants. Scholars believe that no more than 200 people lived at the site, but the impact of their ideas far exceeded their numbers. Some of Jesus' pronouncements as recorded in the New Testament had similarities to expressions in the scrolls, Paul quotes scrolls written at Qumran, and the Gospel of John also reveals a link to the sect. A specific prayer recited at specific times of day is a custom the Jewish sages adopted from the Qumran sect after the destruction of the Second Temple. The people at Qumran were apparently Essenes, a group that was known even before the 1947 discovery of the Scrolls from the writings of the contemporaneous historian Josephus Flavius. The members of the sect saw themselves as the chosen of Israel, whose ways the rest of the people should follow. Their separatist nature led them to the desert, although groups also lived in separate communities in cities, including Jerusalem. חשיפת שרידי היישוב קומראן ומגילות ים המלח שנמצאו בסביבתו, הציתה את דמיונם של נוצרים ויהודים גם יחד. אל המידע ההיסטורי ואל "המגילות הגנוזות", אותן יצירות ספרותיות שהוחבאו במערות מדבר יהודה, הצטרפו עם חשיפת המגילות גם ממצאים חומריים, שביחד ציירו תמונה על אורח החיים ודרך המחשבה של תושבי קומראן. ביישוב חיו, לדעת החופרים באתר, לא יותר מ200- בני אדם, אך חשיבות הרעיונות שייצגו אותם מתיישבים חרגה בהרבה מגודלה של הקהילה במקום. קיימים קווים משותפים בין דברי ישו כפי שהם באים לידי ביטוי בברית החדשה, לבין דברים שנכתבו במגילות. פאולוס מצטט באיגרותיו חיבורים שנכתבו בקומראן, וגם מחבר האוונגליון על שם יוחנן גילה קירבה לחוגי הכת. תפילת הקבע, נוסח תפילה אחיד הנאמר בשעה קבועה, הוא רעיון שאותו כנראה אימצו חכמי ישראל מאנשי קומראן, לאחר חורבן הבית השני. אנשי קומראן הם כפי הנראה האיסיים, ששמם נודע עוד לפני גילוי המגילות. מתוך כתבי יוסף בן מתתיהו מתקבל הרושם שמדובר בכת, שפיתחה השקפת עולם כה בדלנית, עד כי הוא מוצא לנכון לציין שאנשים אלה מוצאם יהודי. בני הכת ראו עצמם כעם ישראל הנבחר, שהאחרים צריכים ללכת בעקבותיו. אם לא כן - מרה תהיה אחריתם. זו הייתה הגישה שבגללה נבדלו יושבי קומראן משאר ישראל ופנו למדבר, אם כי ידוע שהם יצרו תאים נבדלים גם בתוך הערים, כמו למשל בירושלים.

Over one thousand nude Israelis gathered on the shores of the Dead Sea early Saturday morning to take part in world renowned photographer Spencer Tunick's photo shoot. Tunick's decision to shoot at the Dead Sea coincides with the Seven Natural Wonders of the World Campaign to stop the rapid shrinking of the sea located at the lowest point on earth. Rushing to complete the shoot before the sun rose high in the sky Tunik arranged the models including an all male shoot and one of 150 women covered in kilos of Dead Sea mud. Speaking to reporters after the shoot Tunick said he was just a catalyst for more than 1,000 Israeli models. "The safety of democracy is dependent on a society that accepts freedom of expression in art," Tunick said. The photographer has organized some 75 photo shoots of nude crowds at landmarks all over the world, and worked for four years to prepare for Saturday's shoot.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are ancient manuscripts that were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves near Khirbet Qumran, on the northwestern shores of the Dead Sea. They are approximately two thousand years old, dating from the third century BCE to the first century CE. Most of the scrolls were written in Hebrew, with a smaller number in Aramaic or Greek. Most of them were written on parchment, with the exception of a few written on papyrus. The vast majority of the scrolls survived as fragments - only a handful were found intact. Nevertheless, scholars have managed to reconstruct from these fragments approximately 950 different manuscripts of various lengths.

Ein Gedi: Different shades of blue, salt blocs, unique and along the desert's pearl coasts. An oasis with beauty bursting in shades of green and an array of other colors, this is a small piece of heaven, unique and fascinating, home to a community that built itself a small, magical Garden of Eden. That is the story of Ein Gedi, where a small group of people with a love for plants and animals and pride in the place they chose to live in, with a familiarity with what makes Ein Gedi unique. It is an oasis on the shore of the Dead Sea, in the shade of the Ha'etekim Cliff -- a blooming garden and world famous site. That this wonderful oasis is considered "The Land of Ein Gedi" is well deserved.

Zahi Shaked A tour guide in Israel and his camera [email protected] 972-54-6905522 tel סיור עם מורה הדרך ומדריך הטיולים צחי שקד 0546905522 My name is Zahi Shaked In 2000 I became a registered liscenced tourist guide. My dedication in life is to pass on the ancient history of the Holy Land. Following upon many years of travel around the world, which was highlighted by a very exciting emotional and soul-searching meeting with the Dalai Lama, I realized that I had a mission. To pass on the the history of the Holy Land, its religions, and in particular, the birth and development of Christianity. In order to fulfill this "calling" in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians. I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters) Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.

Dead Sea shrinkage predicts future mega drought
 
06:34
(21 Jun 2017) LEADIN: Scientists in Jordan say a mega drought that devastated the Middle East thousands of years ago is set to return. Evidence found inside bubbles trapped in salt below the Dead Sea predicts another mega drought heading for the area at some point during this century. The findings point to a bleak future for the Middle East where the water in the Dead Sea watershed that is currently used by Israel, Palestine and Jordan might vanish completely. STORYLINE: The air vibrates with heat along the lowest point on Earth 430 metres or 1,412 feet deep below sea level. This is the shoreline of the Dead Sea near the Wadi Zarqa Ma'in canyon in Amman, Jordan. The water glitters in the hot sun, the shores are rimmed with sharp salt crystals. But the salt lake is slowly shrinking – losing a metre of depth a year – as climate change and human water consumption deplete its resources. Geologists from Jordan, Israel and the United States are collecting preliminary samples from ravines and waterfalls across the eastern shore of the Dead Sea. Ancient clues buried in mud, rock and salt just might help these scientists learn more about the future of this area - that many believe will likely be even more arid than it is today. While the western side of the Dead Sea in Israel is well-studied. The team here hopes to fill in what they describe as "the blank map" of Jordan with geological data that can help them explain when and how the Dead Sea has grown in the past. Yael Kiro, a geochemist at the Columbia University Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory says: "We want to learn what's going on in the Dead Sea in terms of how much water from the eastern side and what is the composition of water and what is the composition of sediments. We can't understand without this the changes that we see in the Dead Sea and therefore we can't understand the climate without knowing what is going on here." Kiro lead a Dead Sea drilling project in 2010 along with fellow geologists, Moti Stein and Stephen Goldstein. A floating drill discovered evidence of cyclical growth and shrinkage of the salt lake. At times it stretched to the Golan Heights; other times mega droughts devastated the watershed and drove the Dead Sea 100 metres deeper than it is today. When water flows downhill it carries with it soil, salt, trees and other detritus like animal carcasses. Over thousands of years this material forms layers coloured by its contents – ashen white for dry summers and dark grey for fertile winters. Geologists can read the history in these bands of colour – and use sophisticated laboratory experiments to discover intricate details of changes of climate 200,000 years ago until today. "Now we are with our partners and colleagues from Columbia University to study and sample different water resources from the eastern part of the Dead Sea and besides that we are sampling rocks and different soil profiles to see any indicators of the paleoclimate which is the climate thousands of years ago to have a clear idea about what was the climate, what is the climate now, and then we can forecast the future climate of the Dead Sea area," says Marwan al-Raggad, a hydrologist at the University of Jordan. "Our main objective is to study the climate in the area and to see how the climate affects the Dead Sea and for sure if the climate is affecting the Dead Sea it will affect the ecosystem it will effect the whole community of the area in the Middle East and Northern Africa areas that is contributing to the Dead Sea areas." Goldstein is a geochemist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. He has studied the Dead Sea for 30 years.
