The Dead Sea (Israel) is a miracle of nature, an amazing phenomenon that has caused great interest of researchers since ancient times. On the world map, it is located at the junction of Africa and Eurasia, on the territory of two states – Israel and Jordan.
And in fact, this is of course not the sea, but a huge lake, since it has no drains. And the only river flowing into it is the Jordan River.
The Sea is 67 km long, 18 km wide and 300 meters deep, but this is today. It is constantly changing. Now it is 430 m below sea level, but every year it “carries away” an average of one meter.
