Scientists who conducted research in Antarctica on the East coast came across hundreds of mummified bodies that were buried under the ancient snow. It is reported by the Journal of Geophysical Research. Reports Politeka.
The report said that hundreds of mummified penguins was discovered by experts from the Chinese University of science and technology on the Peninsula long.
“Hundreds of mummified penguins was discovered by experts from the Chinese University of science and technology on the Peninsula long.
Scientists stumbled upon the abandoned colonies of Adelie penguins (the most common). On the same place were found the remains of birds, which, according to experts, died about 750 years ago”, — underlined in the message text.
Moreover, scientists were able to determine the cause of such unexpected death of the animals. So, according to scientists, the excessive amount of summer precipitation and the melting snow caused the penguins hypothermia (hypothermia).
Antarctica is a huge icy continent, almost double that of Australia. This is the only place on Earth, almost untouched by man.
The bulk of the land in Antarctica is covered by ice that in the coastal areas during the summer retreat. Here some mountain peaks never snow.
Antarctica is the coldest and driest continent on Earth. Over 99% of its surface covered with ice, whose thickness reaches more than 5 km.
Because scientists believe that the continent keeps many mysteries that have to find out in the future of humanity.
We will remind, on YouTube there was a shocking study that might change the history. A user with the nickname MrMBB333 using Google Earth found in the ice of Antarctica “submarine Hitler”.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” Valentin Degtyarev – famous Ural researcher. During the study of archival satellite imagery he noticed something unusual. He became interested in a strange spot, not like a natural phenomenon.
Also “Znayu” I wrote that global warming could have catastrophic consequences. In this regard, scientists established permanent control over the Arctic and Antarctica.
