►Click here for more: http://win.gs/OperationDeadSea Brace yourselves for a salty landing! It’s not every day that you get to see someone flying below the surface of the Earth. That is exactly what Red Bull Air Force Team members Jon Devore, Mike Swanson and Andy Farrington managed to pull off! The jump took place from approximately 1,865 meters above Panorama road overlooking the Dead Sea, which happens to be -430 meters below sea level. As the athletes took turns challenging each other in getting as close as possible to the ground to cross the Zero level barrier – marked by the flag of Jordan- in a very daring move, the parachutes were opened at -170 meters below sea level for the jumpers to eventually swoop land on the surface of one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world. _ Experience the world of Red Bull like you have never seen it before. With the best action sports clips on the web and original series, prepare for your "stoke factor" to be at an all time high.

The Dead Sea (Hebrew: יָם הַמֶּלַח‎ About this sound Yam ha-Melah lit. Salt Sea, Arabic: البحر الميت‎‎ About this sound Al-Bahr al-Mayyit), is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west. Its surface and shores are 430.5 metres (1,412 ft) below sea level,[4][6] Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With a salinity of 342 g/kg, or 34.2%, (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 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. 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 asphalt 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 water has a density of 1.24 kg/litre, which makes swimming similar to floating.

The Dead Sea is drying up at an alarming rate
 
01:21
The Dead Sea has already lost more than one third of its surface area over the years. The water level is currently dropping by over 1 meter every year and its shoreline is expected to drop from 411 meters to 430 meters below sea level by 2020, according to the environmentalist group EcoPeace Middle East. Traditionally, the Jordan River is the Dead Sea’s inflow source. However, 50 years ago it was diverted to supply cities, reducing the water inflow level to the Dead Sea to just 5% of its original volume. The hot and dry climate of the region makes it difficult for the Dead Sea to restore itself. That added to the rapid loss of water has resulted in the increased salinity of the lake. The group also points out that the Dead Sea is threatened by cosmetic companies that extract mineral water from the region to make beauty products. Hotels and attractions built along the shoreline also release untreated sewage into the Dead Sea. Even though the Dead Sea does not have any wildlife in itself, the region around it is known for supporting several endangered species such as ibexes, leopards and the indigenous Dead Sea Sparrow. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Lake Assal is a crater lake in central-western Djibouti. Lake Assal is a saline lake which lies 155 m (509 ft) below sea level in the Afar Triangle, making it the lowest point on land in Africa and the second-lowest land depression on Earth after the Dead Sea. No outflow occurs from the lake, and due to high evaporation, the salinity level of its waters is 10 times that of the sea, making it the most saline in the world after Don Juan Pond.

The Dead Sea is the lowest spot on the face of the earth (-422 meters below sea level, to be exact). It is called the Dead Sea because its salinity prevents the existence of any life forms in the lake. That same salt, on the other hand, provides tremendous relief to the many ailing visitors. People can get benefit from its healing properties. You can lay on the surface of the water without even trying to float. The high salt content makes you buoyant. All these and more make the Dead Sea so fascinating, so different and so interesting.

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.

Get in the water, lean back and let nature take its course. It may take a minute to get used to but then, we promise, it's magical. The Dead Sea – bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan – is a salt lake whose banks are more than 400m below sea level, the lowest point on dry land. Its famously hypersaline water makes floating easy, and its mineral-rich black mud is used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments at area resorts. The surrounding desert offers many oasis and historic sites.

The Dead Sea "Sea of Salt", also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east, and Palestine and Israel to the west. 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. 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 31 miles long and 9 miles wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. www.maranathatours.com

Dead Sea, Israel

Dead Sea is actually a lake and has been an outlet to the Sea of Galilee. The water evaporated thousands of years ago making it the lowest point in the world at 394.6 m (1269 ft) below sea level. To give you the comparison, California’s Death Valley is just 85.5m below sea level. After fun hikes around the seven waterfalls in Ein Gedi, we drove to indulge ourselves in the floating experience of the Dead Sea. From Ein Gedi, it was a short 8 minute drive to Ein Gedi Spa, which is a great spot from which to take trams to the Dead Sea. If you are driving from Jerusalem, it takes around 1 hour 30 minutes to reach Ein Gedi Spa. Although, Dead Sea run stretches along the Judean desert, it is not advisable to walk in to any random spot to get into the Dead Sea. The reason being, the Dead Sea has many sinkholes, which are not safe. So we cannot go just any where in the Dead Sea for a bath. At many places along the road, there are signposts in the area of Ein Bokek pointing to the bath areas. We chose to go to Ein Gedi Spa for the total unique experience. Tips for Dead Sea 1. We were advised not to shave before entering the water as salt water could cause skin itchiness 2. Try not to splash water on the eyes, high salt content in water can cause severe burning/stinging 3. Ein Gedi Spa and similar spas give you the total experience of the Dead Sea 4. Ein Gedi Spa shop had a wide variety of cosmetic products. However they might be pricey, and you can probably get for half the price at the Old City in Jerusalem. We came back to the Ein Gedi Spa for mud experience and sulphur water pool. We immensely enjoyed both and felt really rejuvenated post the experience . The locker rooms have clean and well maintained showers and restrooms. We showered off and then spent time shops of Ein Gedi Spa, which had amazing collection of Dead Sea products and cosmetics.

Please Rate Comment and Thumbs Up! Extended Version of the First Video "Flotation Devices The dead Sea" This Video was Filmed during our 14 day Holy Land cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette. The Ship parks in the Port City of Ashdod which is just outside of Tel-aviv Israel. From there we hailed a cab to drive us 2 hours to the Dead Sea. The City of Jerusalem is situated up on top of a mountains area. As you come down the mountains heading towards the Dead Sea you will see people living among the desert in shanty shack looking houses with fires burning and skinny domesticated animals. The cab driver said they had been living there for generations. As we started to come down the last part there were elevation signs telling us we were going below sea level. The Air temperature also got warmer and more humid. The Valley floor was around 82 Degrees F. in mid November. There was a private beach Located on the Dead sea which has a bar, indoor and outdoor showers, The temperature in Jerusalem was probably in the mid 60s. On our way back at night is was even a bit cooler. The dead sea is not actually a Sea because it doesn't connect with the rest of the ocean. The river Jordan empties into the hyper saline lake generations of rain water have dissolved minerals from the surrounding mountains only to settle on in the dead sea. However it seems like the Dead Sea may be getting smaller and smaller based on the structures built near the shore. We were advised to not shave before going because the salty water will burn any open cuts or sensitive skin. If you do have any open cuts you will find them once you enter the water.

The Dead Sea is one of the most unique geographic formations in the world, supporting unique ecosystems and harboring historic and cultural treasures. The long-term decline of the water level is creating an ecological imbalance on both land and sea that will eventually destroy this unique and precious resource. The culture of environmental artists and nature lovers provides a unique, non-political platform for people of this war-torn region to connect to their natural environment and to one another. Nature art is extremely popular in Western Countries and a part of its cultural heritage for centuries; whereas in the Middle East, nature and wildlife art are not well known. The ANF is an excellent example of an NGO that brings together renowned artists from all over the world to help save "endangered" places.

Sinkholes Discovered in the Dead Sea
 
04:26
Mysterious Giant Sinkholes were discovered in the Dead Sea. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Dead Sea is famous for its healing remedies and unique minerals. But in recent years a new phenomena has appeared - gigantic sinkholes are appearing along the sea's west coast. Our Israeli team spoke with a researcher who fell into one of those holes. The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth. It attracts tourists from all over the world, who enjoy its healing waters. Industries also utilize its minerals. But in recent years, deep holes began forming along its west coast. In Israeli terminology, they are named "Sinkholes," and they can swallow up roads, vehicles and even humans. We went out to examine this phenomenon, and met a geologist who fell into a sinkhole while he was examining it. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "I was informed that new sinkholes were spotted somewhere. I went to document it and discovered a small sinkhole... while documenting it, it grew larger and drew me in." So what does it feel like to be swallowed by the earth? [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "I fell into a massive landslide, which kept me on one side, but the other side was burying me. The first thing I recall was striving to get out. It was pitch dark and I couldn't see anything. I felt as though there was a heavy rock on my head. It was a struggle which lasted for hours, trying to dig my way out; and at one point I managed to climb out of the fall, and from that moment onwards, the anxiety began." Raz sat in the depth of the hole for 14 long hours. He was unable to move, and unable to climb upwards. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "The biggest problem was that I was afraid to move much, because everything was very fragile, and each movement could have aroused a new landslide". Then, Raz found a solution for his anxieties -- he began writing. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "Since occasionally there were more landslides, I felt anxious. I found a postcard in my bag, and I also had all my equipment along with me in my backpack, including a pen, so I decided I was going to write a farewell letter." Writing on the postcard helped him to relax. In his bag there was also a roll of toilet paper, and he kept on writing during all these long hours in the pit. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "Since writing felt good, I decided to keep writing. I found a roll of toilet paper in my backpack, so I took it out and it lasted until the evening". In addition to writing, Raz made a conscious decision to keep thinking positively all along, and that soothed his anxieties. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "Because otherwise I would be mentally lost, and the first moments were extremely difficult -- moments of a very deep, existential anxiety." After we learned about his downfall in the sinkhole, we tried to understand how sinkholes are created. Raz claims that rivers, including the Jordan River, that used to flow into the Dead Sea -- are being shifted from their courses for various reasons. The heavy industry in the area also evaporates the sea. As a result, the sea level drops about 1 meter per year. This eventually leads to the creation of sinkholes. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "The drop in the level of water in the Dead Sea is a result of humans interfering with the water system. The water levels are dropping rapidly, something which probably never existed in natural conditions. Now the systems are imbalanced so there are reactions such as this one, with infrastructures collapsing." The appearance of sinkholes poses a very concrete danger -- A danger for lives, for property and for the economy. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "Sinkholes are dangerous for people. There are people who fell into sinkholes, including myself, but not only me. A car or a bus might also fall into a sinkhole." The Sinkholes have severely harmed the economy in the Dead Sea area. In such a place, it is impossible to cultivate any agricultural products, or have tourism. [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "It harmed the agriculture, and most of the palm plantations in Ein-Gedi had to be abandoned... there was also a huge tourism project on the beach here, and a lot of money was invested here, but we had to abandon it." We tried to keep optimistic. Is the situation reversible? Is it possible to repair the Dead Sea and its surroundings? [Eli Raz, Geologist, Ein-Gedi]: "You picture a hypothetical situation in which all consumers who use water from the Dead Sea and the Jordan River -- will give up their water. This sounds very unlikely." Reporter:Israela Yablonka Photographer:Anat Markram NTD News, Israel

The Disappearance of the Dead Sea
 
11:42
The deterioration of the Dead Sea has been observed and known for decades,The Dead Sea is currently 430 meters below sea level. Since Israel’s founding in 1948, the sea level has fallen by 40 meters,The sinkholes around the Dead Sea can be up to 24 meters deep, though most are much shallower.At 1,407 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on the surface of the planet and, though its name suggests something more massive, is little more than a lake at the mouth of the Jordan River. Only microbial life can survive its saline waters, which are ten times saltier than the oceans.Sinkholes, , started appearing in this region in the 1980s, the result of underground fresh water coming into contact with the old subterranean salt layer, depositing there for thousands of years. The freshwater washes the salt away, creating an underground void into which the surface collapses. Scientists don’t know when, and sometimes even where, a sinkhole may swallow the next patch of land. It is one of the most beautiful but yet one of the most dangerous places on Earth.

Red Sea to Supply Water to Dead Sea
 
01:11
The Dead Sea, bordering the Middle Eastern countries of Israel and Jordan, and the Palestine territories, is reportedly losing water, with the surface receding at the rate of around three feet annually, due to irrigation water taken out of its tributary, the River Jordan. The Dead Sea, bordering the Middle Eastern countries of Israel and Jordan, and the Palestine territories, is reportedly losing water, with the surface receding at the rate of around three feet annually, due to irrigation water taken out of its tributary, the River Jordan. An agreement has been signed by officials from Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority in an effort to save the Dead Sea from disappearing by bringing water from the Red Sea to a desalination plant in Jordan and piping the resulting brine to the Dead Sea. Hydroelectric energy will be used to power the desalination process that will also provide drinking water for the area. The deal was signed at the World Bank headquarters in Washington D.C. with a projected cost of between 250 and 400 million dollars. The Dead Sea not only provides water for the area, but is also popular with the health and tourism industry thanks to its unique mineral properties. These industries are threatened by the loss of water, which some estimates say could disappear by 2050. However, environmental advocacy groups are also concerned over the possible effects of the brine on the area's fragile ecosystem. What do you think about the plan to bring brine from the Red Sea to restore the Dead Sea' s water level?
