According to the National forecasting centre of the state of the marine environment of China NMEFC, “the Hole of the Dragon”, the depth of which is 300,89 meters, is the deepest sea tunnel in the world. This reports the Global Times.
Blue hole Yongle Sansha located in the Paracel Islands. Sansha Yongle formed rather slowly, until it was destroyed rocks, with the result that now she has an almost vertical shape.
According to experts, the depth of Sansha Yongle — 300,89 meters, diameter of its upper part is 130 meters, and at the base is about 36 meters.
According to scientists, this tectonic funnel are not reported under the earth with the waters surrounding the South China sea.
Interestingly, in the upper part of the hole can meet at least 20 species of marine life.
According to experts, the blue hole is of great importance for science, and is also a historical and cultural value.
“Of course, the new hole has a record size. It will provide us with materials about climate change and sea level for tens of thousands of years”. Ian Tsochen, Professor of Maritime University of China
For comparison, the depth of the Great blue hole in Belize — 124 meters with a diameter of 300 meters, and the depth of Dean’s blue hole in the Bahamas island, long island — 202 meters. The latter, incidentally, has long been considered the most profound education of this kind.
Blue hole is a type of rare natural geographic phenomenon, which is considered “the last mystery, protect the mystery of the universe on earth.” The name of the phenomenon was due to the contrast of the dark blue water of the crater with the ambient light in shallow water.
Note that similar wells filled with water, the so-called funnel is worldwide, they all have different depths, basically up to a hundred meters depth. Special popularity they enjoy among divers.
Sansha Yongle Dragon Hole, which is 300.89 meters deep, is now officially the deepest ocean blue hole in the world, China’s National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center (NMEFC) announced on its Wechat account on Sunday. https://t.co/oAuSO9jgt4 pic.twitter.com/bULx9dANUW

Recall, scientists say, the most mysterious place on Earth is Mariana trench. After all, there cannot be the depth can hide the oldest unseen monsters.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” about 90% of the volume of the Black sea is a sulfide. This means that water resources that are suitable for life, sea creatures, remains 10%.
Also “Znayu” I wrote, in the human body bacteriobenthos genes much faster than in nature.
