The water of Lonar Lake, the famous capital of India, is gradually changing to pink! Mysteriously, the forest department and scientists have expressed surprise over the mysterious change in the color of the water in this lake in Maharashtra.
There is no end to the curiosity of environmental scientists about this lake which was created about 56,000 years ago. Many tourists flock here every year to see the beauty of this lake.The 6.69 hectare lake is surrounded by the Lonar Sanctuary. It covers an area of about 3.8 square km. It is the largest basalt rock lake in the world. There are two more in India. A Dhala and Ramgarh in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. But there is still a lot of information about them to unknown scientists."This is the first time we have faced such an incident," said MK Khairner, deputy conservator of the Aloka Forest Department. Lake water samples have been sent for testing to unravel this mystery. Samples have been sent to Niri in Nagpur and Agarkar Research Institute in Pune.
MS Reddy, director of the APCCF and Melghat Tiger Conservation Center, told the Times of India that the water in Iran's Umira Lake also mysteriously turns pink. Testing so far, scientists say, the amount of water decreases a lot in the summer. As a result, it is normal for the water of the lake to become saline. As the salinity of the water increases, the water in the lake turns red.
There are also aquatic plants in the shallow water of the lake. Surprising things that can happen as a result of the change of those algae. It is also responsible for the depletion of the lower water atmosphere. Whether the oxygen level in the lake water has decreased has also been investigated.
