    Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    Scientists find world's sixth largest river - at the bottom of Black Sea - Oneindia News

    British scientists have discovered a 115-feet deep river, more than half a mile wide - at the bottom of Black Sea.


    The flow - carrying highly salty water and sediment - is 350 times greater than the Thames, according to a Leeds University team who used a robotic submarine to scan the seabed near Turkey.



    It stems from salty water spilling through the Bosphorus Strait from the Mediterranean into the Black Sea, where the water has a lower salt content.

    This causes the dense water from the Mediterranean to flow like a river along the seabed, carving a channel and deep banks.


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"

    Not a river IMO. Just a quirk of the Black Sea.

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    I always classified rivers as emptying into a larger body of water. If this "river" is underwater, it sounds more like a trench.

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    Does it lead to Austrailia and are there talking turtles named crush that get in the river?

    A deep water flow is not a river in my book.

    It's a river!

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    It sounds like a "current", not a river. This is a really cool discovery though.

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    to quote the article, it's "like a river"


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    Pluto isnt a planet anymore but water flowing at the bottom of a sea is a river. I feel bad for the young kids that have to keep all this **** straight.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Especially for the kids in New Mexico and Illinois, where their lawmakers feel like there are still 9 planets......

    Pluto IS a planet - a minor one. Just because the I-Cubs are an AAA team doesn't mean Des Moines doesn't have a baseball team...

    Re: Scientists find world's sixth largest river

    I was wondering how you would lose such a large river in the first place.

    This isn't a river, and Pluto is a planet. Anything that happend after I left 5th grade is not going to change my view.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
