South Tufa, Mono Lake

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

莫诺湖位于大盆地西边,大盆地涵盖内华达,及猶他中部。许多河流泉水永远无法到达海洋,而流入这区域沙漠河谷,或像莫诺湖这样没有出口的湖泊。她是北美最古老的湖泊之一!

河水夹带微量的盐,以及矿物质流入莫诺湖,经过数十万年(我猜的)的累积,湖水的盐分高过海水数倍,而且碱性很强。

我在大盆地一带看过干枯的河床,一望无际的雪白盐层。。。

莫诺湖奇特漂亮的钙华塔之形成,是由富含钙质的泉水,从湖底产生气泡,到达带碱性的湖水。

我们现在看到的钙华塔,是在高水位时候形成的。湖水的来源,河流与涌泉,曾经被截取去养活兴起的大城市洛杉矶,水位下降,严重影响莫诺湖生态!

人与大自然如何共存?
