Scientists from Russia, Germany, Switzerland and England are looking at the bottom of lake Baikal responses to questions about how life evolved and changed the climate of Central Asia millions of years ago. Using a special sampler researchers get samples of soil from the bottom of the biggest and purest lake on the planet and build the first conclusions and hypotheses.
With augers or chainsaw scientists know better than a professional fisherman. A few seconds and the surface begins to rise the purest Baikal water. The deepest lake on the planet researchers from Russia, Germany, Switzerland and England, as «our laboratory».
Using a special sampler and a conventional winch, the scientists take samples of soil from the bottom of lake Baikal, which today is the main subject of study. The sediments are a unique archive. According to experts, they can store the entire history of Central Asia. They cover everything from earthquakes to the smallest details of appearance and disappearance of species. Professor of Irkutsk state University Nikolay Budnev explains: «In bottom sediments can be found even pollen, which lived here thousands of years ago, and that Continue reading
