Aral Sea the life and Death on Google Earth Map
info from:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_Sea The Aral Sea (Kazakh: Арал Теңізі Aral Teñizi; Uzbek: Orol Dengizi; Russian: Ара́льское море, tr. Aral'skoye Morye; IPA: [ɐˈralʲskəjə ˈmorʲɪ]; Tajik: Баҳри Арал Bahri Aral; older Persian: دریای خوارزم‎ Daryâ-ye Khârazm) was an endorheic lake lying between Kazakhstan (Aktobe and Kyzylorda provinces) in the north and Uzbekistan (Karakalpakstan autonomous region) in the south. The name roughly translates as "Sea of Islands", referring to over 1,100 islands that once dotted its waters; in Old Turkic aral means "island".[3] The Aral Sea drainage basin encompasses Uzbekistan and parts of Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.[4] Formerly one of the four largest lakes in the world with an area of 68,000 km2 (26,300 sq mi), the Aral Sea has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet irrigation projects. By 2007, it had declined to 10% of its original size, splitting into four lakes – the North Aral Sea, the eastern and western basins of the once far larger South Aral Sea, and one smaller lake between the North and South Aral Seas.[5] By 2009, the southeastern lake had disappeared and the southwestern lake had retreated to a thin strip at the extreme west of the former southern sea; in subsequent years, occasional water flows have led to the southeastern lake sometimes being replenished to a small degree.[6] Satellite images taken by NASA in August 2014 revealed that for the first time in modern history the eastern basin of the Aral Sea had completely dried up.[7] The eastern basin is now called the Aralkum desert. In an ongoing effort in Kazakhstan to save and replenish the North Aral Sea, a dam project was completed in 2005; in 2008, the water level in this lake had risen by 12 m (39 ft) compared to 2003. Salinity has dropped, and fish are again found in sufficient numbers for some fishing to be viable.[8] The maximum depth of the North Aral Sea is 42 m (138 ft) (as of 2008).[1] The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters".[9] The region's once-prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequential serious public health problems.

Aral Sea Reborn - earthrise
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Kazakhstan's Aral Sea was once the world's fourth largest lake, a rich haven for fish, birds and other wildlife. It was also home to bustling fishing ports such as Aralsk. But starting in the 1960s, massive agricultural expansion saw much of the water from the two rivers that feed the lake diverted into thousands of canals to irrigate crops. This caused the Aral Sea to shrink by 70% and split into two. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Full Documentary: "Aral. The lost sea" by Isabel Coixet | We Are Water Foundation
The drying up of the Aral Sea is one of the greatest environmental disasters in history. Between 1954 and 1960, the government of the former Soviet Union ordered the construction of a 500 km-long canal that would take a third of the water from the Amu Darya River for an immense area of irrigated land in order to grow cotton in the region. The increasing need for water, due to bad transport management and a lack of foresight and efficiency in land irrigation, meant that more water had to be diverted from rivers flowing into the Aral Sea. As a result, in the eighties, the water reaching the port was as little as 10% of the amount in 1960, and the Aral Sea began to dry up. Consequently, the Aral Sea currently occupies half of its original surface area and its volume has decreased by a quarter, 95% of the nearby reservoirs and wetlands have become deserts and more than 50 lakes from deltas with a surface area of 60,000 hectares have dried up. In terms of climate, this process has eliminated the area’s environmental shock absorbing capacity, making winters and summers harsher, with a subsequent increase in severe droughts. The wind has displaced tons of the saline sand that was originally at the bottom of the dried-up area to a distance of up to 200 km, which has drastically exacerbated the situation. Added to this, fertilisers and pesticides were used indiscriminately, polluting the air and groundwater. The Soviet goal to have saline water at four times the limit recommended by the WHO reduced the groundwater level from 53 to 36 metres, which in turn caused serious problems with the supply of drinking water. The consequences for the health of the population have also been extremely serious. The region has the highest infant mortality rates in all of the former Soviet Union. Chronic bronchitis has increased by 3000% and arthritis by 6000%. In the Uzbek region of Karakalpakstan, anaemia is epidemic among women and 97% of them have haemoglobin levels lower than the 110 grams per litre of blood established by the WHO. Experts point out that this is caused by the consumption of stagnant water containing zinc and magnesium. In the same zone of Uzbekistan, liver cancer increased by 200% from 1981 to 1987, throat cancer by 25% and infant mortality by 20%. Also, cases of hepatitis, respiratory disease, eye-related illness and intestinal infection in the region are seven times higher than in 1960. All of this occurred in a relatively short period of time and the most shocking thing is that it happened with an almost total lack of international awareness. In 2003, satellite pictures from NASA demonstrated the full scale of the disaster and what many scientists had already announced. World opinion is now mobilising and we are beginning to find out the full extent of the current human disaster. In January 1994, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan signed an agreement pledging 1% of their budgets to contribute to the recovery of the sea; however, cooperation among these countries has been minimal. Currently, the northern zone of the Aral Sea is recovering slightly as a result of the construction of the Kokaral dam by the Kazak Government to retain water that would normally flow into Uzbek territorial waters. more information at www.wearewater.org
Assignment Asia: Kazakhstan Aral Sea restoration
The Aral Sea was the world’s fourth largest lake, but also the site of one of its worst man-made disasters. In the 1960s, a massive irrigation project diverted its water elsewhere, causing the lake to shrink and eventually dry up. But in recent years, thanks to large-scale restoration projects, its northern part has sprung back to life. Michal Bardavid visited the town of Aralsk, and found out that as water slowly fills the lake once again, hopes are seeping into the hearts of residents living in this thriving fishing community.

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 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.

The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters". The region's once prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequent serious public health problems. The retreat of the sea has reportedly also caused local climate change, with summers becoming hotter and drier, and winters colder and longer. Put together for the MSc in Environmental Technology.

Resurrecting the Aral Sea
Aral Sea (2007): For decades, the Aral Sea has been described as dying and beyond salvation. But now, the water is flowing back, bringing economic revival and hope for the future. For downloads and more information visit http://www.journeyman.tv/57367/short-films/aral-sea.html Fifty years ago, the Soviets diverted the rivers that fed into the Aral sea to irrigate crops. The sea shrunk to half its size, salinity increased, the natural ecosystem collapsed and people moved away in search of jobs. But now, thanks to a new dam, water levels have risen by 4 meters. People are returning in the hope the sea will make a full recovery. As one man states; "If the sea comes back, life will change for the better".

Europe is its major buyer. But while the former Soviet Republic is at the forefront of global cotton production, its human rights and environmental record lags far behind the rest of the world. Forced child labour, human rights violations, excessive pesticide use, the draining of an ocean and severe poverty are all rife in cotton production in Uzbekistan.

Drying of the Aral Sea (1984-2012) - Aral Gölünün Qurutulması
Explore a global timelapse of our planet, constructed from Landsat satellite imagery. With water diverted to irrigation, the inland Aral Sea has shrunk dramatically. Many areas were completely dry by 2009. Each frame of this timelapse map is constructed from a year of Landsat satellite data, constituting an annual 1.7-terapixel snapshot of the earth at 30-meter resolution. The Landsat program, managed by the USGS, has been acquiring images of the Earth's surface since 1972. Landsat provides critical scientific information about our changing planet.

Aral Sea Dried Up
The Aral Sea is one of worst environmental disasters on earth. The fourth largest lake on earth (400 miles long) is all gone now. The old Soviet Union dammed up the two rivers flowing into the lake, which prevented the rivers from replenishing the lake water that evaporated in the hot climate. The entire fishing-based economy collapsed, resulting in most of the people moving and the cities dying.

The Shrinkage of The Aral Sea
Since the 1960's, irrigation schemes have been diverting water away from the Aral Sea resulting in it's shrinkage in one of the worlds worst ecological disasters.

The Shrinking Aral Sea Has Been Reduced To A Mere Sliver
NASA’s Terra satellite documented the slowly shrinking Aral Sea over the course of the past fourteen years starting in 2000. The Aral Sea in Central Asia used to be the fourth largest land locked body of water in the world with its tributary rivers the Syr Darya and the Amu Darya. After being irrigated and diminished by drought, the eastern basin of the Southern Sea has dried up for the first time in an estimated 600 years. NASA’s Terra satellite documented the slowly shrinking sea over the course of the past fourteen years starting in 2000. Philip Micklin, a geographer emeritus from Western Michigan University and an expert on the Aral Sea is quoted as saying: "This part of the Aral Sea is showing major year-to-year variations that are dependent on flow of Amu Darya. I would expect this pattern to continue for some time." During the 1950s and 60s the Soviet Union irrigated the two tributary rivers of the lake for agriculture, which significantly lowered the water level, splitting the water into two parts known as the South Aral Sea in the country of Uzbekistan, and the North Aral Sea located in Kazakhstan. Over the years, the water level has continued to go up and down depending on the precipitation in the area and run off carried by the tributary rivers.

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

Pirates of a dead Sea. The ecological disaster of The Aral Sea.
Pirates of a Dead Sea Pirates who plunder rusty carcasses and sell to China. The Aral Sea (loosely translated as "Sea of Islands") is a lake between Kazakhstan in the North and Uzbekistan in the South. It was once one of the four largest lakes in the world with an area of 68,000 square km's but has rapidly shrunk since the 1960's after the rivers that fed it were diverted for Soviet irrigation projects and to harness hydro-electric power. The Daily Telegraph in 2010 (2010-04-05) described this shrinking and subsequent consequences as "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters." Thriving fishing communities were destroyed and the local climatic impact of the severe and rapid change has led to long cold winters and hot dry summers. The area is severely polluted from Industrial waste and fertilizer run offs. And if this wasn't enough consider the horrendous consequences of the Cold War Biological Weapons facility on the island of Vorozhdenya where Tuloremia and the Bubonic Plague were produced and where hundreds of tons of Anthrax bacteria were buried in the 1980's. In 1999 live Anthrax bacteria spores that had been buried there, were discovered. Scientists warned of the spread of this lethal bacteria to the mainland by birds and animals. According to the Kazakh Scientific Center for Quarantine and Zoonotic infections, all of the Anthrax burial sites were contaminated.. The Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan announced in 2006 that a consortium of oil and gas companies had signed a production agreement. The Minister said that "The Aral Sea is largely unknown, but it holds a lot of promise." He added ominously: "There is risk of course...." (Itar- Tass News Agency). In the meantime hardy desert grass begins to grow offering food for the newly introduced camels. Also the Pirates of the sand come and eke out a living collecting steel to export to China. КАТЯ ЗООПАРК 's documentary brilliantly captures the life of these inventive scavengers. The documentary is part of SEATOMORROW :vimeo.com/59211963 Director: Katerina Suvorova/Kazakhstan|AlmatyCinematographer -- Eugen Schlegel/Germany|Berlin. The first part of this documentary was titled "Pirates of the Sand" by КАТЯ ЗООПАРК (www.vimeo.com/64726850) and included in this video is the portrayal of the disastrous consequences of man messing with nature. www.telegraph.co.uk/...a/...Aral-sea-ever-return.html www.news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6538219.stm www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/...ex.php?title=Dead_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/Aralsea I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)
