Aral Sea: The sea that dried up in 40 years - BBC News
Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews The disappearance of the Aral Sea in Central Asia is one of the world's greatest man-made disasters. In Kazakhstan, with the help of the World Bank, more than $80million have been spent trying to save the most northern part of the sea but this has only benefited a few hundred people. In this film, we speak to people still living in deserted fishing ports, to see how their lives have changed, and to find out whether they believe that they'll ever see the sea again.

Aral Sea Catastrophe
Death of Aral Sea, winds rise and spread the bottom salt on hundreds of kilometers around. Aral a once-large saltwater lake straddling the boundary between Kazakstan to the north and Uzbekistan to the south. The shallow Aral Sea was formerly the world's fourth largest body of inland water. It nestles in the climatically inhospitable heart of Central Asia, to the east of the Caspian Sea. The Aral Sea is of great interest and increasing concern to scientists because of the remarkable shrinkage of its area and volume in the second half of the 20th century. This change is due primarily to the diversion (for purposes of irrigation) of the riverine waters of the Syr Darya and Amu Darya, which discharge into the Aral Sea and are its main sources of inflowing water. The sea's northern shore—high in some places, low in others—was indented by several large bays. The low-lying and irregular eastern shores were interrupted in the north by the huge delta of the Syr Darya and in the south were bordered by a wide tract of shallow water. The equally vast Amu Darya delta lay on the lake's southern shore, and along the lake's western periphery extended the almost unbroken eastern edge of the 820-foot- (250-metre-) high Ustyurt Plateau. Shrinkage of the Aral Sea, 1960--99.From about 1960 the Aral Sea's water level was systematically and drastically reduced because of the diversion of water from the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers for purposes of agricultural irrigation. As the Soviet government converted large acreages of pastures or untilled lands in Uzbekistan, Kazakstan, Turkmenistan, and elsewhere into irrigated farmlands by using the waters of the Amu Darya and Syr Darya, the amount of water from these rivers that reached the Aral Sea dropped accordingly. By the 1980s, during the summer months, the two great rivers virtually dried up before they reached the lake. The Aral Sea began to quickly shrink because of the evaporation of its now-unreplenished waters. By the late 1980s, the lake had lost more than half the volume of its water. The salt and mineral content of the lake rose drastically because of this, making the water unfit for drinking purposes and killing off the once-abundant supplies of sturgeon, carp, barbel, roach, and other fishes in the lake. The fishing industry along the Aral Sea was thus virtually destroyed. The ports of Aral in the northeast and Mŭynoq in the south were now many miles from the lake's shore. A partial depopulation of the areas along the lake's former shoreline ensued. The contraction of the Aral Sea also made the local climate noticeably harsher, with more extreme winter and summer temperatures. By 1989 the Aral Sea had receded to form two separate parts, the "Greater Sea" in the south and the "Lesser Sea" in the north, each of which had a salinity almost triple that of the sea in the 1950s. In the late 1990s an island in the Aral Sea, Vozrozhdenya, became the centre of environmental concern. This was of special concern because Vozrozhdenya had been a testing ground for Soviet biological weapons during the Cold War. In addition to testing done there on such agents as tularemia and the bubonic plague, hundreds of tons of live anthrax bacteria were buried on the island in the 1980s. In 1999 still-living anthrax spores were discovered on the site, and scientists feared that when the island was no longer surrounded by water, land vertebrates could carry anthrax to populated areas. Other environmental problems plagued the region as well. By the end of the century the Aral had receded into three separate lakes. The level of the sea had dropped to 125 feet (36 metres) above sea level, and the water volume was reduced by 75 percent of what it had been in 1960. Almost no water from the Amu Darya and the Syr Darya reached the sea, and, unless drastic action were taken, it seemed likely that the Aral Sea could disappear within 20 to 30 years, leaving a large desert in its place. The health costs to people living in the area were beginning to emerge. Hardest hit were the Karakalpaks, who live in the southern portion of the region. Exposed seabeds led to dust storms that blew across the region, carrying a toxic dust contaminated with salt, fertilizer, and pesticides. Health problems occurred at unusually high rates—from throat cancers to anemia and kidney diseases. Infant mortality in the region was among the highest in the world.

The Shrinking Aral Sea - Uzbekistan
July 2001 For 50 years Soviet leaders diverted the rivers which feed the sea to irrigate cotton. And when it became clear that the land wasn't suited for the thirsty crop the planners simply increased the use of hazardous chemicals. "It is the world's largest man- made environmental disaster", says Ian Small for Medecins Sans Frontiers in Uzbekistan. The charity usually operates in war zones, but for the first time it has now set up a project devoted solely to an environmental catastrophe. The war here is against tuberculosis, kidney disease and cancers - plaguing the people of the region. Some are caused by toxins, some by the high levels of salt in the water. "Almost nothing grows and it's hard for people -- salt concentrates in their joints and they can't walk for a long time...", says Aigali Tankimalov who sailed the Aral Sea for 29 years. Now the wreck of the vessel he commanded in the navy sits opposite his front door -- and the nearest water is 100 kilometres away. The last of the 20 or so species of fish that lived in the Aral Sea died out in the 1980s, the victims of an environmental catastrophe. Yet despite the dramatic evidence of environmental destruction, Uzbekistan's new leaders continue to grow cotton and scientist fear the damage is irreparable.

How Did A Sea Disappear?
The Aral Sea, once the world’s fourth largest lake, has almost disappeared in just 40 years. Situated between southern Kazakhstan and northern Uzbekistan, this salt lake was dealt a devastating blow in the mid 20th century when the soviet government controlled this region. In an effort to create farmland by irrigating the surrounding desert regions, the soviets diverted two vital rivers that fed into the Aral Sea, but diverting these rivers deprived the lake of crucial water sources. The area’s once-thriving fishing communities watched as their livelihood dried up. A few years into the 21st century, just 10% of the sea remained. Today entire generations have no recollection of its former glory but there is hope. In 2005 the World Bank funded the construction of new dams, in an effort to save the lake. Thanks to this work, a small section of the sea has returned, and fishermen are once again able to bring in catches - albeit much smaller quantities. Despite this progress, there’s still a long way to go to transform what is still largely a desolate ship graveyard.

Shrinking Aral Sea (2000-2011) [3D converted]
In the 1960s, the Soviet Union undertook major water diversion projects on the Syr Darya and Amu Darya rivers, capturing water that once fed into the Aral Sea. Irrigation projects made the desert bloom, but they spelled doom for the natural freshwater lake. As the Aral Sea dried up, fisheries collapsed, as did the communities that depended on them. The remaining water supply became increasingly salty and polluted with runoff from agricultural plots. Dust blowing from the exposed lakebed eventually degraded the soils, forcing further water diversion efforts to revive them. On a larger scale, loss of the Aral Sea's water influenced regional climate, making the winters even colder and the summers much hotter. Fifty years later, the lake is virtually gone.

The Dead Sea is drying up at an alarming rate
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.

Central Asia's second-largest lake under threat - 23 Aug 09
It is Central Asia's second largest lake and home to more than three million people, but Kazakhstan's Lake Balkash is under threat. The desert-locked sea is shrinking due to over-irrigation, caused in part by industrial neighbours such as China. Many are concerned it could suffer the same fate as the Aral Sea, and eventually disappear. Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker travelled with a team of scientists to Lake Balkhash - to find out why history could be about to repeat itself.

Aral Sea - sandstorms and the fight against desertification | Tomorrow Today
The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth largest lake. But for decades the rivers that feed it have been diverted for irrigation. As a result, the huge body of water between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan has steadily shrunk and is now only 10 percent of its original volume. What remains is a desert of sand, salt and toxic dust containing pesticides, fertilizers and industrial chemicals.Sandstorms carry the dust to surrounding regions, causing widespread desertification and health problems for the local population. Scientists are searching for ways to halt this environmental catastrophe.

World of Change: the Shrinking Aral Sea
The Aral Sea was once the fourth-largest lake in the world. Fed primarily by snowmelt and precipitation flowing down from faraway mountains, it was a temperate oasis in an arid region. But in the 1960s, the Soviet Union diverted two major rivers to irrigate farmland, cutting off the inland sea from its source. The Aral Sea has been slowly disappearing ever since.

Как человек уничтожил Аральское море(Death of the Aral sea)
Аральское море — бессточное солёное озеро в Средней Азии, на границе Казахстана и Узбекистана. С 1960-х годов XX века уровень моря (и объём воды в нём) быстро снижается вследствие забора воды из основных питающих рек Амударья и Сырдарья. До начала обмеления Аральское море было четвёртым по величине озером в мире. Чрезмерный забор воды для полива сельскохозяйственных угодий превратил четвертое в мире по величине озеро-море, прежде богатое жизнью, в бесплодную пустыню. То, что происходит с Аральским морем -- настоящая экологическая катастрофа, вина за которую лежит на Советской власти. В настоящий момент высыхающее Аральское море ушло на 100 км от своей прежней береговой линии возле города Муйнак в Узбекистане -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aral sea - salt lake in Central Asia, bordering Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Since the 1960s of the XX century the sea level (and the amount of water in it) is declining rapidly due to diversion of water from the main feeder rivers Amudarya and Syrdarya.

Excessive withdrawal of water for irrigation of agricultural land has transformed the world's fourth largest lake-sea, first of rich life in a barren desert.

World Landbridge (8) - The Aral Sea Project
South of the Trans-Siberian Railway lies the Central Asian Desert, where vast transformations in the vein of NAWAPA are ripe for implementation. The project to revive the Aral Sea, which was proposed back in the 1940s by the Russian engineer Davydov, has been developed further since that time, and has recently been reactivated by Presidents Medvedev of Russia and Nazarbayev of Kazachstan. The Aral Sea has shrunken dramatically since the 1960s and 70s, when, for the purposes of water-intensive, Soviet-planned cotton crops, water from the rivers Amu and Syr Darya was diverted in large amounts. The sea has been drying up at an accelerating rate. This has led to the destruction of fishery in the region, and a landstrip of about 80 to 300km around the sea has seen a massive retreat of rainfall and the advent of salt storms. The potential solution to this condition lies many kilometers to the north, in the Altai mountains, where, at the border between Russia, Kazakhstan, China and Mongolia, the rivers Ob and Irtysh originate.

Aral sea Dried up cause of Global Warming  सूख गया दुनिया का चौथा सबसे बडा सागर
global warming this video is about how a 4th number largest sea dried in 50 years this is because global warming lots of tragedies are happening jus because of global warming Aral sea is direct example of it. When Soviet Union made a Project plan for the water of Aral sea they just diverted the rivers which watering to Aral Sea and then started the dried story of Aral Sea We have to understand about Global Warming. How much we are paying for the pollution?We have just to take action about it, Otherwise our Planet is not safe to live earlier. Since 2006, the Aral sea -- the formerly huge body of water between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan -- has shrunk dramatically.  According to NationalGeographic.com, the eastern part has lost a whopping 80 percent of its water in the short time.  The Aral Sea, before and after (UH.edu) In addition, over the past three decades 60 percent of the water in the lake has disappeared, because farmers back in the 1960s changed the course of two rivers that were flowing into it in order to water crops.  First the sea split into two lakes: the Large Aral Sea and the Small Aral Sea. By 2000, the Large Aral Sea had split again into two bodies. The salt concentration in the water became much higher, and the local fishing industry could no longer survive.  Experts say the southernmost part of the lake could soon disappear forever. please check out my other videos- 1 zika virus https://youtu.be/Qq8weapgPDA 2 magical mooving land real https://youtu.be/LRj3VdzD4k4 3 best inspirational story for students https://youtu.be/9RftH11RYIM 4 aral sea dried up https://youtu.be/5fzXPNpKx74 5 get attension back of your child in study https://youtu.be/mJwbMdJRzWw

Lake Became Desert Within Thirty Years..
The Aral Sea is situated in Central Asia, between the Southern part of Kazakhstan and Northern Uzbekistan. Up until the third quarter of the 20th century it was the world?s fourth largest saline lake, and contained 10grams of salt per liter. The two rivers that feed it are the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers, respectively reaching the Sea through the South and the North. The Soviet government decided in the 1960s to divert those rivers so that they could irrigate the desert region surrounding the Sea in order to favor agriculture rather than supply the Aral Sea basin. The reason why we decided to explore the implications up to today of this human alteration of the environment is precisely that certain characteristics of the region, from its geography to its population growth, account for dramatic consequences since the canals have been dug. Those consequences range from unexpected climate feedbacks to public health issues, affecting the lives of millions of people in and out of the region. By establishing a program to promote agriculture and especially that of cotton, Soviet government led by Khrouchtchev in the 1950s deliberately deprived the Aral Sea of its two main sources of water income, which almost immediately led to less water arriving to the sea. Not only was all this water being diverted into canals at the expense of the Aral Sea supply, but the majority of it was being soaked up by the desert and blatantly wasted (between 25% and 75% of it, depending on the time period). The water level in the Aral Sea started drastically decreasing from the 1960s onward. In normal conditions, the Aral Sea gets approximately one fifth of its water supply through rainfall, while the rest is delivered to it by the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers. Evaporation causes the water level to decrease by the same amount that flows into the Sea, making it sustainable as long as inflow is equal to evaporation on average. Therefore the diversion of rivers is at the origin of the imbalance that caused the sea to slowly desiccate over the last 4 decades. Level of salinity rose from approximately 10g/l to often more than 100g/l in the remaining Southern Aral. Salinity of the rivers varies with place and time, as well as through the seasons. When going through the desert, rivers often collect some salt compounds residues in the ground that result in higher salinity, but may well be lowered again after going through irrigated lands. Dams also affect salinity, notably by reducing its variability with the seasons. Smaller lakes within the Aral Sea that have stopped being fed by river flows tend to have higher salinity due to evaporation, causing some or all fishes that either survived or had been reintroduced in the 1990s to die. Even re-watering those lakes does not compensate for the increased salinity over the years. In 1998, water level was down by 20m, with a total volume of 210km3 compared to 1,060km3 in 1960. Most of the changes in climate and landscape in the Aral Sea basin that we are about to explore are at the least indirect products of Human induced changes. While we must remember at all times that society is responsible for the crisis that has unfolded in and around the Aral, the point we want to make is that most of the actual changes that have afflicted the Sea since the 1960s are the result of our environment’s reaction to the stresses society has imposed on it. Thus, the difficulty lies as much in understanding the way climate and other natural systems function as in being capable of weighing the potential consequences of our actions before we undertake them. Risk assessment combined with scientific understanding should undercut our actions more efficiently; adding an ethical dimension to the equation remains more than welcome in addition to those more accessible and quantifiable factors, but is too fragile to be the centerpiece on which our decisions rely before we commit to large scale actions which can often, as we are about to see, engender even larger responses from our environment. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "The Parents Must Be Watch This Video (Tamil)" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F7VA8cU43A -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Once-massive Aral Sea Dries Up To Almost Nothing
The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth-largest lake. Now much of it is a vast toxic desert straddling the borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, two former Soviet states in central Asia. In recently released images, NASA's Earth Observatory shows the extent of the lake's recession over the past 14 years. The damage reached its peak this year, when the eastern lobe of the South Aral Sea -- which actually was the center of the original lake -- dried up completely. http://rss.cnn.com/~r/rss/edition_asia/~3/cOkmcaAz5Ow/index.html http://www.wochit.com

Ships Cemetery: Aral Sea Dead Zone of Poisoned Pollution
Once the world's fourth largest lake, Central Asia's Aral Sea is now famous for other reasons. With 90 percent of its water lost through Soviet Union irrigation projects, it's now little more than an environmental catastrophe. And as RT's Lindsay France reports, the sea's demise also poses a serious threat to people's health. RT on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/RTnews RT on Twitter: http://twitter.com/RT_com

The Aral Sea Disaster.
The Aral Sea is one of the World's worst man-made disasters to ever happen. But if we all try our best to help, we can fix all of the damage we have caused. The clock is ticking. and the time is almost up. The Increasingly salty water has plenty of fertilizers and pesticides in it, making the water unsafe to drink and the crusted salt from the dried parts of the lake is blowing into the fields, degenerating the soil. Now that most parts of the lake is dried up, people call it the Aral desert, due to the abandoned boats and the cracking, salt crusted ground. The Aral Sea is Surrounded by the mainlands, far away from the oceans and seas. The Aral Sea is a very valuable resource to the people because the Sea was in the mainlands. It was and still is very far away from any other seas and main bodies of water. So, it was the only source of water around in that region. So, if the people of Uzbekistan took away all of their only water source, It would be harder to find drinking water and bathing water and there wouldn’t be any more fish in the lake, since there wouldn’t be a lake at all. If this ecosystem disappeared, there would be a huge problem for all biotic factors and It wouldn’t benefit anyone in this situation. If we reduce the water taken out of the lake and leave it alone... The Sea will Eventually come back slowly, Fish will slowly come back Jobs on the water will be restored. Will take a very long time Agriculture will be paused and all food will be lost and everyone and everything will die Solution #3 It will take a long time to do but if we can find a faster way to restore water that would be better before we take the longer way. If we build a dam... A quicker way to get water back and is already working Prevents floods and large amounts of water from coming in Very Expensive Can stop wildlife from getting from one place to another Solution #2 It is a bit more on the expensive side but, it won’t take as long as just leaving it alone, and it will have faster results. But before we use all of this money, we should find a more cheaper and more efficient way. If Farmers would stop wasting so much water and we tax the water that everyone is using... Can raise money for further solutions Farmers might stop farming if expensive get too high People might Protest This is the most logical solution out of all. If we charge people for the water they are using, they will stop wasting so much and it will help the government raise money for other solutions they didn’t have enough money to do before. First, we should build a dam (which we have already have done in 2005), improve irrigation, find other natural pesticides and fertilizers that don’t harm the water and what’s in it, eventually get a majority of the water back, and then desalinate the water that has been contaminated by the fertilizers and pesticides that was there from earlier years. My plan is to add a price to the water the people are using so we are not using as much water as we were before, since people wouldn’t be wasting what they paid for, and the government would be raising money for other projects like desalination and improving irrigation. So, it would be a good solution since it can raise awareness of what is happening and is raising money to fix the problem. My plan is the most effective because it is not as complicated and expensive as building another dam or improving irrigation. Both of those solutions do work, but they both are very expensive to put together and they both require a lot of time to be investing too. So, it would be more logical to add a price to the water to raise funds for bigger projects and raise awareness around Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Made with http://biteable.com
