Massive Hidden Ocean 10x Size of The Great Lakes Discovered In China

Fact checked
hidden ocean

Scientists in China have found a massive hidden ocean in Xinjiang, under the Tarim basin, one of the driest places on the planet.  Reports say, however, that the amount of salt water underneath the basin could be 10 times the amount of water found in all the Great Lakes combined!

According to The International Business Times:

Scientists have suspected that the water is a result from high, nearby mountains, and that melt water from those mountains had slipped beneath the basin. “This is a terrifying amount of water,” said professor Li Yan, who led the study at the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography in Urumqi, the Xinjiang capital, the South China Morning Post reported. “Never before have people dared to imagine so much water under the sand. Our definition of desert may have to change.”

The Tarim Basin is the world’s largest landlocked basins and also home to China’s biggest desert, the Takla Makan Desert, which is situated in the middle of the basin and is presumed to be the world’s second largest-shifting desert.

Not Looking For Hidden Ocean

Li’s team had accidentally discovered the water; they had actually been looking for carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide can be absorbed in certain regions called “carbon sinks,” and scientists study those “carbon sinks” to better understand climate change. Li’s team had discovered 10 years that carbon dioxide had been disappearing into the basin, but could not understand why.

The team collected over 200 underground water samples from different areas in the desert, and by comparing the amount of carbon dioxide in the samples with the amount of carbon dioxide in the melt water, they estimated the amount of water that had flown into the basin.

Li said his team would work with other research teams to find out if similar “oceans” could potentially exist underneath other large deserts. He said that it is likely large amounts of water will be found underneath the deserts, because according to his team’s calculations, the amount of carbon the “oceans” have the potential to carry can reach a trillion tonnes, which is the same amount of “missing carbon” on the planet.

  1. This info proves liers one more- too many times -the “Climte Change” or “New Green Deal” Socialist Communist of the world: Democrats and some Republicans are in charge in the USA of making the idea to work in 12 yrs.. That’s why the liers lie “Crisis the world will end in 12 yrs”, or they steal the inocence of naive children to use them to fight for their inhumane cause! And the parents let their children be abused and help them to slave them in a NWO!!! With no mercy the globalist propaganda 24/7 “The world wil end the way you know it” “Walk now or swim later” ” or The high school student treat with ” We will walk out of school until adults hear us to stop the carbon print”. “We the students, the teeager talk as she will not stand one question that is not comming from other adults that did not inject the climate change idea! ” We will protest at the UN and adults WILL FEEL THE FIRE IF THEY SAY ANYTHING TO US CHILDREN”!!! This teen ager and younger are empowered by the rapist that rape their inocence about how to get real knowledge and to lear right from wrong or how to know when somebody tell the truth or when somebody lies!! She/ they will be and are violent to defend those adult that injected them with (they are against adult to tell the children, bc it is “the children consern!” ideas to SLAVE THEM WITH THE HELP OF THE POWERFULL UN CHILD RAPIST! This like rapist take schools to impress children without parents concent like a child rapist do, to convice for a vote about Climate Change the way humans live and due to Carbon, has no scruples. If humans do not know their planet like this info. The Climate change is the New World Order of few humans-globalist ( Maurice Strong- Algore, Soros and the economic Billionaires, that see humans less than animals and have to control their free way of living to make them live as the globalist think humans should live; less than animals. The globalist are using pay to cash corrupt politicians to SLAVE humans with one Econimic, one religion, one culture and one govt.way of living to protect the planet and animals and slave humans
