►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.

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.

Biblical wonder the Dead Sea is at risk of disappearing
 
03:30
After suffering from years of drought, the Dead Sea is facing an "environmental disaster in slow motion". Scientists are warning the sea level is falling by as much as 1.5m (5ft) per year - meaning it could be a tiny pool by the middle of the century. The crisis has seen sinkholes open up and resorts close in what is currently a popular tourist attraction. Growing populations in the area also mean there is competition for water resources. Dr Ofir Katz, an ecologist at the Dead Sea and Arava Science Center, offered a word of caution: "We need to take care of nature or else we all sink with it."

The video was produced as part of A Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli Initiative: Bringing the Dead Sea to Life Through Art and Music http://www.artistsfornature.com/projects/bringing-the-dead-sea-to-life/ The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west.The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, making it Earth’s lowest elevation on land. 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.

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.

Dead Sea-Israel

For millennia, the salty, mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea have drawn visitors and health pilgrims to its shores. But in recent years, Sinkholes have been opening up without warning along its banks, The Dead Sea is famous for is extreme salinity (34 percent salt, almost 10 times as salty as the ocean), and for having the lowest elevation on Earth, at 429 meters below sea level. But for the past few decades, the sea has been shrinking rapidly, due to the diversion of water from the Jordan River (which feeds the Dead Sea) , the evaporation and mineral mining from its waters in the south. The water's surface is currently receding by about 1 m per year. This short video can be viewed from above in the western region of the Dead Sea and enjoy the stunning views showing the results fall in the water level of the Dead Sea and the formation of sinkholes.

The lowest place on the face of earth, the Dead Sea (431m below sea level) brings together breathtaking natural beauty, compelling ancient history and modern mineral spas that soothe and pamper every fibre of your body. The jagged bluffs of the Judean Desert, cleft by dry canyons that turn into raging tan torrents after a cloudburst, rise from the cobalt-blue waters of the Dead Sea, heavy with salt and oily with minerals. In oases such as Ein Gedi, year-round springs nourish vegetation so lush it’s often been compared to the Garden of Eden. Atop the bluffs lies the arid moonscape of the Judean Desert; in the valley, human beings have been hard at work for millennia, building Masada and Qumran (where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found) in ancient times and, more recently creating kibbutzim, luxury hotels, hiking trails, bike paths and even a world-famous botanic garden.

Floating in the Dead Sea ...You Can't Sink!

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.

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.

Save Our Water Treasures- The Dead Sea Revival Project
 
01:24
What is #SaveOurWaterTreasures? There are three historical and beautiful water treasures that exist in Israel: the Dead Sea, the Kinneret, and the Jordan River. Since Israel achieved peace with its neighbor, Jordan, they’ve been sharing these water treasures. Unfortunately, these beautiful bodies of water and it’s living surroundings are at risk, as the waters are at the lowest they’ve ever been in recorded history. We, at the Dead Sea Revival Project (DSRP), are advocating for a natural solution to increase the water levels. This solution would involve restoring the water levels in the Kinneret, so that fresh water can flow into the Jordan river and then down to the Dead Sea, which is also in real danger. This is the natural solution that solves the main reason for the receding water level of the Dead Sea. Israel, as a global leader of water management and technology, has the ability to resolve these issues, and many people are working to influence policy makers and the general public.

Dead Sea in Jordan 09/01/2018
 
01:29
September 1, 2018 At 408 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea -- located at 55 kilometers southeast of Amman, Jordan -- is the lowest point of the earth’s surface, making it four times saltier than the average ocean due to the high concentration of salt and minerals which gives its renowned curative powers, therapeutic qualities, and its buoyancy. Scientific studies reveal that there are 35 different types of minerals found in the Dead Sea that are essential for the health and care of the body skin including Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Bromine, Sulfur, and Iodine. This high concentration of minerals provide the raw materials for wellness — relieving pains and sufferings caused by arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis, eczema, headache and foot-ache — while nourishing and softening the skin with its renowned Jordanian Dead Sea bath salts and cosmetic products being marketed worldwide.

The Dead Sea is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel to the west. Its surface and shores are 430.5 metres (1,412 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.[7] 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.[1] 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.

Facts about Dead Sea

7 Interesting Facts about Dead Sea The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, making it Earth’s lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is the second saltiest body of water in the world, with a salt content of 33%. Water never flows out of Dead Sea because it is surrounded by land on three sides. The only open side is actually the route through which water enters Dead Sea from rivers and streams. The Dead Sea is roughly 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish. The world’s lowest road, Highway 90, runs along the Israeli and West Bank shores of the Dead Sea at 393 m (1,289 ft) below sea level. The Dead Sea’s unusually high salt concentration means that people can easily float in the Dead Sea due to natural buoyancy. Centuries ago, one of the popular names of the Dead Sea was “The Stinky Sea”.

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.

The Dead Sea Is In Grave Danger (1996)

Killing the Dead Sea (1996): A report on the environmental dangers faced by the Dead sea. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures# Synopsis: In the last 40 years the sea level of the Dead Sea has sunk 16 metres, leaving behind white, salty residues on the sandy shore. Ecologist Gidon Bromberg believes industry and over-development may have robbed the sea of its chance to rejuvenate. For years, the shimmering waves and oases of palm trees have provided a natural spa tourists. Lured by the therapeutic benefits of low humidity and oxygen rich air, they can float in the water and read books or cover themselves in black mud to soak up the medicinal effects. But as new international hotels spring up, Bromberg laments the lack of co-operative strategy between Jordan and Israel. He says, "there is no holistic plan" and worries that industrial mineral plants on both sides of the sea continue to drain the basin. If there is still hope of hydrating the patchy ground and sandy shelves surrounding the sea, then development of this historical and geographical treasure must be properly controlled.

Floating on The Dead Sea
 
07:54
The Dead Sea, or Salt Sea, is a lake of salt water at the southern end of the Jordan River. Its surface and shores are 1,407 feet below sea level, making it the lowest elevation of land on earth. It is also one of the most saltiest bodies of water on earth, nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean. This makes it uninhabitable for life, lending to the sea's name. Here David sought refuge from Saul while being pursued. Later, under Herod, it became an ancient spa. It is mentioned several times in the Hebrew Scriptures (Gen. 14:3; Num. 34:12; Deut. 3:17, 4:49; Josh. 3:16; Joel 2:20), and the Prophet Ezekiel prophesied of a time when the Dead Sea shall be restored (See also Zechariah 14:8).
