Gibraltar Breach.mov
Six million years ago, the Mediterranean Sea nearly dried up during what is called the "Messinian Salinity Crisis". This movie shows a physics-based computer simulation of the breach of Gibraltar and the flood of the basin. A similar event 10,000 years ago, in the then populated Black Sea basin, may have been the source of the Noah's Arc narrative.

The evaporating Mediterranean Sea | BBC
Six million years ago the continents of Africa and Europe collided to close the Strait of Gibralter. Starved of water, the Mediterranean Sea evaporated to form a vast desert. The legacy of this vanished ocean? A million years' worth of salt deposited in mines half a kilimetre beneath the island of Sicily.

The Bizarre Plan to Drain the Mediterranean: Atlantropa
Herman Sörgel wanted to create the largest civil engineering project the world has ever seen: a colossal dam across the Strait of Gibraltar, lowering the Mediterranean sea. There were, of course, a few problems with this.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory which means it is under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom but is not technically a part of it. In 1704, Anglo-Dutch forces captured Gibraltar from Spain during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of the Habsburg claim to the Spanish throne. The territory was ceded to Great Britain in perpetuity under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. 2. The name Gibraltar is the Spanish derivation of the Arabic name Jabal Ṭāriq, meaning "Mountain of Tariq". It refers to the Rock of Gibraltar, which was named after the Umayyad general Tariq ibn-Ziyad who led the initial incursion into Iberia in advance of the main Umayyad force in 711 under the command of Umayyad Caliph Al-Walid I. Earlier, it was known as Mons Calpe, a name of Phoenician origin and one of the Pillars of Hercules. 3. Although about 78% of the population in Catholic, Gibraltar has a significant population of Muslims, Jews and Hindus. The churches, synagogues and mosques all fit together into the small city in the territory with a level of religious tolerance that is very impressive. Interestingly, the Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque at the very tip of Gibraltar is the southernmost mosque in mainland Europe and one of the most beautiful buildings in the territory. It is one of the largest mosques in a non-Muslim country and cost about £5 million pounds to build (it was a gift from King Fahd of Saudi Arabia). It opened in 1997. 4. It’s crowded. Gibraltar is just 6.8 square km in size and, with a population of about 33,000 people, has the 5th highest density of any country or territory in the world (behind only Macau, Monaco, Singapore and Hong Kong). 5. It has the only wild monkey population in the whole of Europe. You may well know that Gibraltar is home to a troop of mischievous Barbary macaques, but did you realise that it is the only wild monkey population on the whole continent? Around 300 of the furry troublemakers, descendants of North African populations and introduced to the area by the Moors, roam the Gibraltar Nature Reserve – and occasionally pinch food from tourists’ rucksacks. 6. Its airport has one of the strangest runways in the world. A lack of flat means Gibraltar Airport’s only runway is bisected by its busiest road (Winston Churchill Avenue). The street closes whenever a plane lands or departs, with a pair of flimsy looking barriers the only thing preventing a nasty collision between a 747 and a Ford Orion. With the runway also extending out to sea, it’s certainly not one for nervous fliers. 7. It has its own language. English is the official language of Gibraltar but many people also speak Spanish and the local language. Llanito, spoken in Gibraltar, is a bizarre mix of Andalusian Spanish and English, along with spatterings of Portuguese and Maltese words, others of Genoese medieval dialect, and even some of Hebrew origin. Speakers seem to switch languages mid-sentence, making it nearly impossible for those who speak only English or Spanish to understand.

Atlantropa a new continent
The Atlantropa proposal to dam the Strait of Gibraltar. Every description of the idea starts with the appeal of a tremendous electric power source. As demonstrated by the Lago Mare event, the Mediterranean operates as a net water sink, due to low rainfall and high insolation. Water flowing through the Strait of Gibraltar (and the Bosporus, Nile, etc.) are required in order to prevent the sea level from falling rapidly. The strait of Gibraltar is only 14 kilometers across at its narrowest point, and about 300 meters deep on average.

Underworld - Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age I
Plato's Story of Atlantis In 360 BC, the famous Greek philosopher Plato wrote about a battle between his city Athens and a great empire named Atlantis. He described this war, which ended when Atlantis disappeared in the ocean due to "violent earthquakes and floods," in two of his books: "Timaeus" and "Critias" (https://sites.google.com/site/11000vchr/plato-s-kritias). According to Plato, all this happened 9,000 years before his time which would be at least 9,400 BC, some 12,400 years ago. Intriguingly, this also corresponds to the period when the geological age of the Younger Dryas suddenly ended with an abrupt warming of more than 10°C in only a few years. This event marked the beginning of the Holocene, the era in which we are still living today. Sea levels must have risen rapidly and dramatically, and as a result entire civilizations, if any existed, would have disappeared under water. It's still unclear what caused the extreme climate change that ended the Younger Dryas around 9,700 BC, although some evidence seems to point to solar activity. Whether Atlantis really existed is hard to say. In that time, sealevels were at least 80 to 100 meters lower than today. Therefore, if there were any archeological evidence, one would have to look deep in the bottom of the sea, but nothing has been found sofar. Plato's main concern was probably with illustrating his political views rather than being historically accurate. He was very much opposed to Athen's new democracy and held the opinion that it would inevitably lead to dictatorship and tyranny. Indeed, Atlantis owed its greatness, according to Plato, to the oligarchy that happened to govern the city-empire exactly the way he propagated in his work “The Republic.” Moreover, only the first 20 pages of Plato's narrative have been preserved. It remains remarkable though, how Plato's story reflects climatic events and other facts of which he could not have had any direct knowledge. For instance, he explains how in ancient times, the higher and less fertile areas were inhabited by primitive pastoral peoples, while the more advanced civilizations lived in the coastal regions, which is why they could escape the catastrophic rise in sea levels that struck the coastal regions and destroyed everything that lived there. Plato tells us that only the Egyptian culture was saved from this due to its special location further inland in the Nile valley. Other intriguing issues, such as the frequent use of “orichalcum” in Atlantis, are mentioned in the “Critias” as well. This mysterious metal is very reminiscent of tumbaga, an alloy of gold and copper in varying proportions which was much used by the Inca and other peoples in the New World. This, however, became known only 2,000 years later after Columbus discovered America. Plato wasn't the first to mention Atlantis as it is often believed. In Herodotus' time, the sea outside Gibraltar was on occasion called the Atlantis Sea. In the Great Hall of the temple of Ramses at Karnak a column shows a depiction of a great festival, along with an accompanying text memorializing “the loss of a drowned continent in the Western Ocean.” Plato described Atlantis as being ruled by ten kings and Egyptian king-lists going back thousands of years before Plato also talk of ten god-kings called “Atlanteans.” The Sanskrit writings of ancient India contain several descriptions of Atlantis, and even assert that Atlantis was destroyed as the result of a war between the gods and Asuras (giant and sometimes demonic creatures). The Vishnu Purana, one of the oldest of the Hindu Puranas, speaks of "Atala, the White Island," one of the seven islands belonging to Patala. The Mahabharata also refers to "Atala, the White Island," which is described as an "island of great splendour." Megalithic structures like the Sphynx in Egypt, Göbekli Tepe in Turkey and maybe even Yonaguni in Japan that were build more than 10.000 years ago, point to the existence of advanced cultures in ancient times. But wether Atlantis is more than just a myth, and where it was located, remains a mystery. (2014) Created in 2002 by Graham Hancock.

Sea Level Rise in Israel
Sea-level data from tide gauges and satellite altimetry show a decrease of nearly 40% in the sea-level drop between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean from 1994 to 1997, coming mainly from a rapid rise of western Mediterranean sea-level by more than 10 mm/year. A decrease in the sea-level difference across the Strait, coincident with this Mediterranean rise, indicates that the surface inflow is reduced by an amount dynamically consistent with the change along the strait. These secular changes are accompanied by a seasonal cycle in the sea-level drop between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, which indicates a seasonal flipping of hydraulic exchange states in the Strait of Gibraltar. Thus, we suggest the sea-level rise in the Mediterranean is a consequence of a changing exchange flow through the Strait of Gibraltar, driven indirectly by changing conditions in the Mediterranean.

The name comes from the Rock of Gibraltar, which in turn originates from the Arabic Jebel Tariq (meaning "Tariq's mountain"[1]) named after Tariq ibn Ziyad. The Arab name for the Strait is Bab el-Zakat, meaning "Gate of Charity". It is also known as the Straits of Gibraltar, or STROG (Strait Of Gibraltar), in naval use[2] and as the "Pillars of Hercules" (Greek: Ηράκλειες Στήλες)[3] in the ancient world. Europe and Africa are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.3 km; 8.9 mi) of ocean at the strait's narrowest point. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres (160 and 490 fathoms; 980 and 3,000 ft)[4] which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years before present[5] when the level of the sea was believed to be lower by 110--120 m (60--66 fathoms; 360--390 ft).[6] Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes.

Its boundaries were known in antiquity as the Pillars of Hercules. There are several islets, such as the disputed Isla Perejil, that are claimed by both Morocco and Spain.[7] Due to its location, the Strait is commonly used for illegal immigration from Africa to Europe.[8] [edit]Extent The International Hydrographic Organization defines the limits of the Strait of Gibraltar as follows On the West.

In the 1920s and 1930s, the Atlantropa project proposed damming the strait to generate large amounts of electricity and lower the sea level of the Mediterranean by several hundreds of meters to create large new lands for settlement.[20] Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Strait of Gibraltar Climate Control Requires a Dam at the Strait of Gibraltar — American Geophysical Union, 1997.

Strait of Gibraltar
The Strait of Gibraltar (Arabic: مضيق جبل طارق, Spanish: Estrecho de Gibraltar) is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Peninsular Spain in Europe from Morocco and Ceuta (Spain) in Africa. The name comes from the Rock of Gibraltar, which in turn originates from the Arabic Jebel Tariq (meaning "Tariq's mountain") named after Tariq ibn Ziyad. It is also known as the Straits of Gibraltar, the Gut of Gibraltar (although this is mostly archaic), STROG (Strait Of Gibraltar) in naval use, and in the ancient world as the "Pillars of Hercules" (Ancient Greek: αἱ Ἡράκλειοι στῆλαι). Europe and Africa are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.3 km; 8.9 mi) of ocean at the strait's narrowest point. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres (160 and 490 fathoms; 980 and 2,950 ft) which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years ago when the level of the sea is believed to have been lower by 110–120 m (60–66 fathoms; 360–390 ft). Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes. The Spanish side of the Strait is protected under El Estrecho Natural Park. This video is targeted to blind users.

Dangerous Gibraltar Airport | British Airways @ Gibraltar | 4K
Gibraltar Airport is listed as one of the most dangerous Airports in the World. Not at least because of it's only 1777m long runway, but also because of the 4-lane Winston Churchill Road, which crosses the runway. My 4K Video shows Airbus A320 Jets of British Airways with flights from and to London at the Airport including a 'nice' crosswind approach. Captured on 09.04.2016. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula.It has an area of 6.7 km2 (2.6 sq mi) and is bordered to the north by Spain. The landscape is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar at the foot of which is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 people, primarily Gibraltarians.[10] It shares a maritime border with Morocco. Under the Gibraltar constitution of 2006, Gibraltar has limited powers of self-government, with some responsibilities, such as defence and foreign relations, remaining with the British government. In 1704, Anglo-Dutch forces captured Gibraltar from Spain during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of the Habsburg claim to the Spanish throne. The territory was ceded to Great Britain in perpetuity under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. During World War II it was an important base for the Royal Navy as it controlled the entrance and exit to the Mediterranean Sea, which is only 8 miles (13 km) wide at this naval "choke point". It remains strategically important, with half the world's seaborne trade passing through the strait. Today Gibraltar's economy is based largely on tourism, online gambling, financial services and cargo ship refuelling. The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations because Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in a 1967 referendum and, in a 2002 referendum, the idea of shared sovereignty was also rejected. Der Flughafen von Gibraltar zählt zu den gefährlichsten Flughäfen der Welt. Nicht nur wegen seiner mit 1777m relativ kurzen Start- und Landebahn sondern auch, weil dieses Bahn von einer vierspurigen Hauptverkehrsstraße gekreuzt wird. Mein 4K-Video zeigt Airbus A320 der British Airways mit Flügen von und nach London, einschließlich eines Anflugs mit Seitenwind. Aufnahmen vom 09.04.2016. Gibraltar ist ein britisches Überseegebiet an der Südspitze der Iberischen Halbinsel. Es steht seit 1704 unter der Souveränität des Vereinigten Königreichs und wurde 1713 von Spanien offiziell im Frieden von Utrecht abgetreten, wird jedoch seitdem von Spanien beansprucht.

Rock of Gibraltar, Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Europe
The Rock of Gibraltar is a monolithic limestone promontory located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, off the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. It is 426 m (1,398 ft) high. The Rock is Crown property of the United Kingdom, and borders Spain. Most of the Rock's upper area is covered by a nature reserve, which is home to around 300 Barbary macaques. These macaques, as well as a labyrinthine network of tunnels, attract a large number of tourists each year. The Rock of Gibraltar was one of the Pillars of Hercules and was known to the Romans as Mons Calpe, the other pillar being Mons Abyla or Jebel Musa on the African side of the Strait. In ancient times the two points marked the limit to the known world, a myth originally fostered by the Greeks and the Phoenicians. The Rock of Gibraltar is a monolithic promontory. It is a deeply eroded and highly faulted limb of an overturned fold. The sedimentary strata comprising the Rock of Gibraltar are overturned (upside down) with the oldest strata overlying the youngest strata. These strata are the Catalan Bay Shale Formation (youngest), Gibraltar Limestone, Little Bay Shale Formation (oldest), and Dockyard Shale Formation (age unknown). These strata are noticeably faulted and deformed. Predominantly of shale, the Catalan Bay Shale Formation also contains thick units composed of either brown calcareous sandstone, soft shaly sandstone interbedded with bluish-black limestone, and interlayered greenish-gray marls and dark gray cherts. The Catalan Bay Shale Formation contains unidentifiable echinoid spines and belemnite fragments and infrequent Early Jurassic (Middle Lias) ammonites. The Gibraltar Limestone consists of greyish-white or pale-gray compact, and sometime finely crystalline, medium to thick bedded limestones and dolomites that locally contain chert seams. This formation comprises about three quarters of the Rock of Gibraltar. Geologists have found various poorly preserved and badly eroded and rolled marine fossils within it. The fossils found in the Gibraltar Limestone include various brachiopods, corals, echinoid fragments, gastropods, pelecypods, and stromatolites. These fossils indicate an Early Jurassic age (Lower Lias) for the deposition of the Gibraltar Limestone. The Little Bay and Dockyard shale formations form a very minor part of the Rock of Gibraltar. The Little Bay Shale Formation consists of dark bluish-gray, unfossiliferous shale, which is interbedded with thin layers of grit, mudstone, and limestone. It predates the Gibraltar Limestone. The Dockyard Shale Formation is an undescribed variegated shale of unknown age that lies buried beneath the Gibraltar's dockyard and coastal protection structures. Although these geological formations were deposited during the early part of the Jurassic Period some 175-200 million years ago, their current appearance is due to far more recent events of about 5 million years ago. When the African tectonic plate collided tightly with the Eurasian plate, the Mediterranean became a lake that, over the course of time, dried up during the Messinian salinity crisis. The Atlantic Ocean then broke through the Strait of Gibraltar, and the resultant flooding created the Mediterranean Sea. The Rock forms part of the Betic Cordillera, a mountain range that dominates south-eastern Iberia. Today, the Rock of Gibraltar forms a peninsula jutting out into the Strait of Gibraltar from the southern coast of Spain. The promontory is linked to the continent by means of a sandy tombolo with a maximum elevation of 3 m (9.8 ft). To the north, the Rock rises vertically from sea level up to 411.5 m (1,350 ft) at Rock Gun Battery. The Rock's highest point stands 426 m (1,398 ft) above the strait at O'Hara's Battery. The Rock's central peak, Signal Hill, stands at an elevation of 387 m (1,270 ft). The near-cliffs along the eastern side of the Rock drop down to a series of wind-blown sand slopes that date to the glaciations when sea levels were lower than today, and a sandy plain extended east from the base of the Rock. The western face, where the City of Gibraltar is located, is comparatively less steep. Calcite, the mineral that makes up limestone, dissolves slowly in rainwater. Over time, this process can form caves. For this reason the Rock of Gibraltar contains over 100 caves. St. Michael's Cave, located halfway up the western slope of the Rock, is the most prominent and is a popular tourist attraction. Gorham's Cave is located near sea level on the steep eastern face of the Rock. It is noteworthy because archaeological excavations in the cave have found evidence that Neanderthals used it as far back as 30,000 years ago. It is especially significant because plant and animal remains found in the cave (and others nearby) indicate that the Neanderthals had a highly varied diet. The flora and fauna of the Gibraltar Nature Reserve are of conservation interest and are protected by law.

A miralce of two different colour of sea in gibraltar strait
souce : IslamSearch.org Qur'an Prove in surah Ar rahman 19-20 before people know, Qur'an already told this 19 مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ He released the two seas, meeting [side by side]; 20 بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لَّا يَبْغِيَانِ Between them is a barrier [so] neither of them transgresses. The Strait of Gibraltar (Arabic: مضيق جبل طارق‎ Madiq Jebel Tariq, Spanish: Estrecho de Gibraltar) is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Peninsular Spain in Europe from Morocco and Ceuta (Spain) in Africa. The name comes from the Rock of Gibraltar, which in turn originates from the Arabic Jebel Tariq (meaning "Tariq's mountain"[1]) named after Tariq ibn Ziyad. It is also known as the Straits of Gibraltar, the Gut of Gibraltar (although this is mostly archaic),[2] the STROG (Strait Of Gibraltar) in naval use,[3] and Bab Al Maghrib (Arabic: باب المغرب‎), "Gate of the West". In the Middle Ages, Muslims called it Al-Zuqaq, "The Passage", the Romans called it Fretum Gatitanum (Strait of Cadiz),[4] and in the ancient world it was known as the "Pillars of Hercules" (Ancient Greek: αἱ Ἡράκλειοι στῆλαι).[5] Europe and Africa are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.3 km; 8.9 mi) of ocean at the strait's narrowest point. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres (160 and 490 fathoms; 980 and 2,950 ft)[6] which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years ago[7] when the level of the sea is believed to have been lower by 110–120 m (60–66 fathoms; 360–390 ft).[8] Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes. The Spanish side of the Strait is protected under El Estrecho Natural Park.

NO! TO SEWAGE AT SEA - Protest at Western Beach, Gibraltar
Users of Western Beach organised this protest at the continuing closure of this beach due to sewage pollution. A recently relocated storm drain in nearby La Linea, Spain is believed to be responsible and its thought many homes in the vicinity have in the past illegally tapped their sewage into this storm drain. The smell at the location at times is nauseatingly unbearable. Samples recently taken show levels of E-coli of 100,000 / 100ml. With FAECAL Streptoccus reaching 10,000 / 100ml. The event was supported by the Environmental Safety Group, GONHS and Friends of the Earth. We call upon the authorities to put an end to this now.

Climate Denialist Ice Sheet Collapse Requires Golden Gate/Gibraltar Dams
Please note: This video was made a couple of years before NASA/JPL/UC Irvine scientists made their May 2014 announcement about the West Antarctic Ice Sheet collapse now being unstoppable. So, the figures in this documentary radically underestimate sea level increase for this and the next centuries. As you watch, add 15-20 feet of sea level increase to the figures cited for this century and the next. caffrey2016.org/donate 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Andy Caffrey now has to recomend these proposals to dam both the Golden Gate (cost $2.5 billion) and the Straits of Gibraltar (height of Empire State Building, cost $275 billion). This is because 35 years of empowered climate denialists in the Republican and Democratic parties have raised atmospheric carbon dioxide to over 400 ppm when the previous high during the entire 2.5 million year ice age of the Pleistocene was 290 ppm. NASA announced in May 2014 that this high a level of CO2 has now caused the “unstoppable” collapse of the West Antarctic ice Sheet. This means 20 feet of rapid (foot per year) sea level increase this century is a certainty. As you can see in this National Geographic special, "Earth Under Water," the first one foot of sea level rise will destroy the California Central Valley farmland and domestic drinking water supply for 26 million Californians. That first foot could come within one or two decades. So we must act now, according to Caffrey. Andy Caffrey was the only person on earth warning of this coming disaster since 1998 and is thus the only qualified candidate to get elected president in 2016. Every other candidate advocates continued use of fossil fuels and has their head in the sand about the severity and urgency of polar ice sheet collapse. Even Bernie Sanders continues to ignore the issue. Caffrey is calling for a National Emergency Effort to rebuild America’s economic infrastructure to a relocalized, bioregionally-oriented one that is post-fossil fuels and post-nuclear powered within ten years. The goal to maximally reduce the use of fossil fuels means the infrastructure design is to allow people to produce everything they need in life from as close to home as possible. This means we must make a u-turn away from a globalized growth economy. Caffrey is an expert who has been working on these issues and solutions for over 35 years. You can read Andy's original 1998 Earth Island Journal warning and his extensive recent writings at caffrey2016.org. Please contribute to his campaign to fund his U.S. Clear the Coasts road show at caffrey2016.org/donate The normal procedure in the US to decommission nuclear power plants is called SAFESTOR and takes 60 years to complete. Most coastal nuclear power plants are sited at five feet above sea level. Since Greenland's ice sheet is now in the red zone for total collapse (20 more feet of sea level increase) and the East Antarctic Totten glacier is showing signs of deterioration (it alone would add another 23 feet of sea level increase), it is highly unlikely that we will have 60 years to clear the coasts of the world's nuclear power plants before they are swallowed up by the ocean and cause 100 Fukushimas. Thus our only prudent option is to initiate decommissioning now of every coastal nuclear power plant on earth. Andy needs your help to conduct his national tour to sound this warning to citizens in every state. This should be a primary goal at the Paris climate talks which begin in late November.

St. Michael's Cave or Old St. Michael's Cave is the name given to a network of limestone caves located within the Upper Rock Nature Reserve in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar, at a height of over 300 metres (980 ft) above sea level. According to Alonso Hernández del Portillo, the first historian of Gibraltar, its name is derived from a similar grotto in Monte Gargano near the Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo in Apulia, Italy, where the archangel Michael is said to have appeared. It is the most visited of the more than 150 caves found inside the Rock of Gibraltar, receiving almost 1,000,000 visitors a year. (Wikipedia)

Messinian salinity crisis animation
by Federica Brigida (Arts student) under the direction of Marina Bolado, David Gomez, and Daniel García-Castellanos (Project WikiArS https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiArS/en ). Based on previous art-work By Mantero, Garcia-Castellanos and Pau Bahí Español: La animación ilustra la crisis salina del Messiniense (Mediterráneo), que tuvo lugar en la época geológica del Mioceno, caracterizada por una acumulación masiva de sal en el fondo marino y que probablemente incluyó un periodo de desecación casi completa (minuto 00:49). Una posible causa de la clausura de la conexión con el Atlántico fue el desenganche y hundimiento de una placa tectónica subducida (minuto 00:13), en combinación con cambios en el nivel del mar (minuto 00:28). Tras la desconexión completa entre el Oceano Atlantico y el Mar Mediterráneo (minuto 00:31) hubo una rápida caída del nivel del Mediterráneo al cancelarse el aporte de agua que provenía del Atlántico. Los ríos que descargaban sus aguas al mar pasaron a recorrer el fondo marino produciendo profundas gargantas en sus propios deltas. La evaporación (minuto 00:35) produjo la deposición de grandes cantidades de sal en el fondo marino (minuto 00:39). Durante el periodo en el que presumiblemente el nivel del Mediterráneo estaba unos 1200-1500 metros bajo el actual, algunos mamíferos transitaron entre Europa y Africa en la zona del Estrecho de Gibraltar (minuto 00:44). Se cree que la crisis salina terminó con una inundación de enormes dimensiones debido a la entrada de aguas Atlánticas hace unos 5,33 millones de años, a través de un paso abierto en el actual Estrecho de Gibraltar (minuto 00:52). Al quedar el estrecho bajo el nivel del Atlántico, éste rebosó sobre el Mediterráneo y la erosión producida por esas aguas excavó una garganta que se fue haciendo más grande y por tanto retroalimentándose, acabando el proceso en un rellenado catastrófico que pudo durar tan sólo unos meses (minuto 01:10). Animación realizada por Federica Brigida con la supervisión de Marina Bolado Penagos (Facultad de Ciencias del Mar y Ambientales, de la Universidad de Cádiz) y Daniel Garcia-Castellanos. English: The animation shows the salinity crisis of Messiniense in the Mediterranean Sea, that took place in the Miocene geological era, characterized by the accumulation of masses of salt on its bottom and probably including a period of almost complete desiccation (00:49 minutes) A possible cause of the subsequent closure of the connection with the Atlantic is the removal of plaque collapsing (slab rollback) during a phenomenon of subduction. (0:13 minute) in combination to the change of sea level (minute 0:28). Following the complete closure between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea (0:31 minutes) the level of the Mediterranean Sea dropped rapidly just because there was no supply of water coming from the Atlantic. The rivers that flowed into the sea, began to run the seabed creating deep ruts and waterfalls in its delta. The evaporation (0:35 minutes) produced the storage of large amounts of salt on the sea bottom (0:39 minutes). Presumably, during the period in which the level of the Mediterranean Sea was 1500-1200 meters lower than today, some mammals passed through Africa and Europe, through the present Gibraltar Strait. (minute 0:44). It is believe that the crisis saline, ended with a flood of enormous dimensions of the Atlantic in the Mediterranean Sea 5.33 million years ago, through an passage opened in the current Straits of Gibraltar (minute 0:52). When the strait collapsed to the level of the sea, the Atlantic overflowed in the Mediterranean Sea and the water, the erosion due to the waters dug a groove getting bigger, finishing the filling process catastrophic, that lasted only few months. (minute 1:10).

Crossing the Strait of Gibraltar, Tarif-Tanger 2010.MOV
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strait_of_Gibraltar#History The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Spain from Morocco. The name comes from Gibraltar, which in turn originates from the Arabic Jebel Tariq (meaning "Tariq's mountain"), albeit the Arab name for the Strait is Bab el-Zakat or "Gate of Charity". It is also erroneously known as the Straits of Gibraltar, or STROG (Strait Of Gibraltar), in naval use and as "Pillars of Hercules" in the ancient world. Europe and Africa are separated by 7.7 nautical miles (14.24 km) of ocean at the strait's narrowest point. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres (980 and 3,000 ft) which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years before present when the level of the sea was believed to be 110 to 120 metres (361 to 394 ft) lower. Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes. Through the strait, water generally flows more or less continually in both an eastward and a westward direction. A smaller amount of deeper saltier and therefore denser waters continually work their way westwards (the Mediterranean outflow), while a larger amount of surface waters with lower salinity and density continually work their way eastwards (the Mediterranean inflow). Evidence of the first human habitation of the area by Neanderthals dates back to 125,000 years ago. In fact, it is believed that the Rock of Gibraltar may have been one of the last outposts of Neanderthal habitation in the world, with evidence of their presence there dating to as recently as only 24,000 years ago. Archaeological evidence of Homo sapien habitation of the area dates back to ca. 40,000 years ago. In December 2003, Spain and Morocco agreed to explore the construction of an undersea rail tunnel to connect their rail systems across the Strait. The gauge of the rail would be 1,435 mm (4 ft 8.5 in) to match the proposed construction and conversion of significant parts of the existing broad gauge system to standard gauge.

Sundaland is in the tropics, surrounded by oceans, and within the Ring of Fire, where a large number of volcanic eruptions occur. Benefitting from the heavy precipitation, volcanic deposits in Sundaland develop into some of the richest forestry and agricultural lands, and developed into some of the richest fauna on Earth. The “Out of Africa” hypothesis is a theory that argues that every modern human being is descended from a small group in Africa, who then dispersed into the wider world. Most versions of the southern dispersal hypothesis suggests that modern humans left Africa between 130,000 and 70,000 years ago, and traveled along the coasts of Arabia, India and Sundaland, arriving in Australia by 50,000 to 40,000 years ago. The “Out of Sundaland” migration model argues that the origin of the Austronesian speakers is in the islands of Southeast Asia. Ideal climatic conditions and natural resources for development were found in Sundaland. After migrating from the semi-deserted savannas of Africa, man first found a place where food was abundant and it was there that they invented farming, agriculture, trading and civilization, which made humanity first flourished. A striking thing that can be observed in this model is the dispersal of population to the other part of the world about 11,000 years ago. An unusual event was happened here. The event is detected from the observation data. The change of the world temperature made the ice on the north pole to melt and the sea level continued to rise. Cracks in the earth’s crust as the weight of the ice shifted to the seas could set off catastrophic events. The most significant one is at the end of the Younger Dryas period. Earthquakes, volcano eruptions, super waves and floods engulfed the coastal cultures and all the flat continental shelves of Sundaland, and wiped out many populations. As the sea rolled in, there was a mass migration of the survivors from the sinking continent. From the legends, myths and tales, Sundaland has many names, among others are Garden of Eden, Paradise, Dilmun, Nippur, Nisir, Neserser, Ta Netjer, Land of Punt, Land of Ophir, Atlantis, Kumari Kandam, Pandya, Kangdez, Tollan and Siwan, Taprobana, and Golden Khersonese. The Destruction of Atlantis Plato mentioned that the island of Atlantis was beset, in a night and a day, by an earthquake and a flood in a night and a day, 9,000 years before Solon, or about 11,600 years ago. This accurately coincided with the cataclysm at the end of the Younger Dryas period. In some other his explanations, it is implied that the flood was coming from the sea, so the possibility is a tsunami. Plato did not recognize “tsunami” so he equated it to “flood”. Earthquakes and tsunamis are very often correlated. Frequent and significant earthquakes, tsunamis and volcano eruptions took place in Southeast Asia, one of the most complex tectonic region on Earth. Tsunami are known for their dramatic run-up heights, can also be excited or amplified in height considerably in shallow waters and on flat plains, and can oscillate back and forth within harbors and bays. We could speculate that the destruction of Atlantis was among others caused by a tsunami in this region. It was due to the tsunami waves traveling in shallow water, that was the ancient Java Sea, and penetrated inland on a very flat plain. The ancient Java Sea was forming a gulf, which could cause the wave became much higher and prolonged, and destructive. Plato also describes that the lands of Atlantis and “the Athens” were sunken ceaselessly afterwards. This is in line with the recent knowledge of post-glacial sea level rise. The sea level kept on rising until about 6,000 years ago, sinking the low lands as well as low plains in Sundaland. The ruin of the Atlantis city and its story were buried forever under the sea. Then, it was remembered by the Egyptians who migrated from there, and wrote them on their sacred registers. More articles at www.atlantisjavasea.com

"Terra convexa is an independent research of Dákila Researches www.dakila.com.br and Centro Tecnológico Zigurats ctzbrasil.com.br originally published in www.terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org" After seven years of research on earth format, scientific experiments carried out by Brazilian researchers at Dakila Research and the Zigurats Technological Center in partnership with professionals from various areas of Brazil and other countries, such as the United States, Russia, Chile, the Netherlands, Spain , have shown that the Earth is not spherical. The evidence is being presented in the feature film Terra Convexa: The Documentary, available in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish and published on the websites terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org Seven scientific experiments were carried out, including the geodesic, which consisted in measuring the distances between the bases and tops of a building in Torres (RS) and another in Natal (RN), with a distance of 3,050 km between them. reference to sea level. "The measurements were the same. If the Earth were spherical, the measure of the distance between the bases should be smaller than the measurement between the upper parts of the buildings because they would be following the curvature of the Earth, "explains Urandir de Oliveira, founder of Dakila Research. Engineers from the National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform (INCRA) participated in the action. A long-range laser was used to measure the flatness and leveling of the waters at the Três Marias Dam (MG); in Lagoa dos Patos (RS), on Lake Titicaca, Peru; and in the seas of Ilhabela (SP) and in the Strait of Gibraltar. The tests performed up to 35 km did not identify any curvature. Experiments with refracting and reflecting telescopes have proved that boats do not disappear on the horizon, but we lost the ability to observe them due to an optical phenomenon. This phenomenon was studied by the researchers, who formulated a new physical theory, which explains physically and mathematically how this works. Experiments with plumbing (verticalization) and level (horizontalization) have proved that gravity does not exist, because the physical behavior of water is to seek its original form, that is, flatness. According to Urandir, what holds us firm to the ground is the MDPL (magnetism, density, pressure and light). Through images obtained through several atmospheric probes launched by the researchers, as well as of incursions made, including in Antarctica, with the collaboration of the Armed Forces of Brazil, as well as other analyzes of materials found in glaciers of Siberia and the shores of the Arctic Glacial Ocean , such as pollen, dust and other fragments, a new continent, known as the "Greater North", was discovered, separated by a large mass of ice. The trajectory of the stars, including the Sun and the Moon, is totally different from what science says. The new information enabled the correct positioning of the continents. The complete research information, with regard to equipments, coordinates, images, all techniques, research content, technical reports, scientific papers, mathematical calculations and proposed theories will be available soon on the websites http://www.terraconvexa.com.br and http://convexearth.org A book with the complete compilation of the research will be released soon.

Massive Underwater Waves Rise Taller Than Skyscrapers
A new study reveals the mechanisms behind the below-surface ocean phenomenon known as internal waves which can reach more than 600 feet high and travel for more than a thousand miles before breaking under water. The waves that surfers ride may look impressive, but they’re relatively small compared to the massive internal ones that exist under water.  These below-surface activities can apparently reach more than 600 feet high, travel a distance greater than a thousand miles from the point of origin, and, according to the new study, “give rise to turbulence levels more than 10,000 times that in the open ocean.”  Though internal waves happen in every ocean, scientists focused specifically on the Luzon Strait, an area between Taiwan and the Philippines, because the area is known for its powerful underwater currents.  For a period of seven years, the team tracked the activity using satellites to determine how the waves work and move. Among the other findings was that the movement is initiated by internal tides and begins as a rolling motion, not a burst of force.  Internal waves can cause large disturbances in the water, affecting the nutrients and temperature for sea life and fishing operations.

[Wikipedia] Footpaths of Gibraltar
The footpaths of Gibraltar provide access to key areas of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, a refuge for hundreds of species of flora and fauna which in some cases are found nowhere else in Europe. The reserve occupies the upper part of the Rock of Gibraltar, a long and narrow mountain that rises to a maximum height of 424 metres (1,391 ft) above sea level, and constitutes around 40 per cent of Gibraltar's total land area. The unusual geology of the Rock of Gibraltar – a limestone peak adjoining a sandstone hinterland – provides a habitat for plants and animals, such as the Gibraltar candytuft and Barbary partridge, which are found nowhere else in mainland Europe. For many years, the Upper Rock was reserved exclusively for military use; it was fenced off for military purposes, but was decommissioned and converted into a nature reserve in 1993. The footpaths link many of the fortifications of Gibraltar. They were constructed from the 18th century onwards using chisels, hammers and rods to dig through the solid rock, in order to permit cannon, soldiers and supplies to be moved from ground level to gun positions and observation points established in numerous places on the Upper Rock. Most of these supply routes were later widened to permit vehicular traffic. Many of the roads on the Upper Rock have steel rings embedded in the rock alongside the carriageway, which were used as safety brakes for heavy loads such as cannon being pulled up the slope. Some routes were retained as footpaths to enable troop movements to be concealed behind the surrounding shrubbery, and to provide alternative routes to key points if a road was congested with a heavy load. Several of the paths can be combined into a strenuous circuit of around 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) that takes about four hours to complete, providing broad views of the Gibraltar peninsula, the Strait of Gibraltar, Spain and the coast of Morocco. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Footpaths_of_Gibraltar Please support this channel and help me upload more videos.
