The Dead Sea is called the Salt Lake .The most saline lakes in the world. The surface of the Dead Sea is over 1,300 feet below sea level. The very bottom of the sea is the deepest part , is over 2,300 feet below sea level. The Dead Sea is completely landlocked ang gets saltier when increasing depth. The surface fed by the River Jordan is the least saline. Down to 130 feet ( 40 meters), the seawater comprises about 300 grams of salt per kilogram of sea water. Salt precipitates out and piles up on the bottom of the sea
Taken this file of salt during my holiday in the Dead Sea
Grand Tulip Hotel, we stayed in
There are no fish or any kind of swimming creatures living in or near the Dead Sea water. What you can see on the shores of the Sea is white, crystals of salt covering everything. No ordinary salt, either. The salt in the Dead Sea are mineral salts, just like you find in the oceans of the world. The water in the Dead Sea is deadly to most living things.
It's me floating
Dead Sea is deadly to most living things but not for us humans. It is remarkably adaptable to human. We can swim, eventually floating. You cannot make breast stroke or back stroke because salt water is bad for the eyes. Mostly people hang-out, have a chat while enjoying floating. That what so cool about the Dead Sea. Because of the extremely high concentration of dissolved mineral salts in the water, its density is way more than that of plain fresh water. I really just floating. ^_^
