Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A pool of water near the Dead Sea was recently found to have turned red. The Jordanian Water Ministry was sending technical teams on Saturday to take samples and find out the reason for the color change, according to Jordanian media.

Local residents circulated photos of the red pond on social media, wondering how the change occurred.

Algae is one option.

Geologists believe the red color of the pool near the Dead Sea may be caused by algae, iron oxide or added chemicals.
