What is there in the water! It contains all the elements periodic table. But what if we use groundwater as liquid ore to extract the substances we need? It turns out that this is quite possible. The use of groundwater as a liquid ore has a long history. Back in the 9th-11th centuries, they began to use salt water and brines from the ground to evaporate table salt from them. Such crafts existed in Poland, Germany, Italy and other countries...

Continental drift theory

If you look at the outlines of the continents in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, you can see that the protrusions of some quite accurately correspond to the concave sections of others. It is not difficult to find, for example, overlapping sections of the Somali-Kenyan mainland with the protruding northwestern part of Australia. This was also noticed by the German geophysicist A. Wegener (1880-1930). He developed the so-called continental drift theory...

Breakup of Pangea and Gondwana

The breakup of Pangea and Gondwana is of considerable interest among geologists studying the origin and development of the continents. It all began in the middle of the Paleozoic era, when two continental conglomerates were formed: one - Laurasian, the other - Gondwana. Each of them consisted of several ancient continental blocks, welded together by mountain-fold belts...

Rivers in the ocean

Not so long ago, other currents, no less powerful, were discovered in the ocean. These are the so-called rivers in the ocean. They flow near the bottom surface above the foot of the continental slopes from high latitudes to low latitudes. Since these currents carry their waters along the contour of the continents, they are called contour geostrophic...
