Salt filled volcano is very close to it
Entire area is affected by salinity
Micro life has adapted itself to here
World’s most difficult area in terms of life
New Delhi: Ethopia has one typical area, where there is
much research, scientists have considered this area as the
most difficult area for subsistence of life.
Actually this was a surprise for scientists that there is no life
despite having water. After continuous research, the reason for
not increasing life there is now known.
Ethopia’s area where water contains acid
However, during the continuation of this research, the
researchers have been surprised to see that even though this
area is difficult for common people, it creates a population of
micro life. The simple life there has adapted itself to the
natural challenges here. For this reason, a life that cannot be seen
with open eyes is in the right position here. There is also water in
this area, yet why there no life, this research was started with this
question. As the data got there, things started coming out from
their analysis. In fact, only the geothermal area there is not able
to create living conditions. Many of the lakes there are filled
with water with excessive amounts of acid. Because of this, the
salinity in the entire atmosphere is so high that normal life
cannot survive there.
Entire area has been badly effected and acidic
Only after a volcanic eruption in this area has the entire area
become acidic. Even now there are gas flows from this volcano
due to the explosion. Due to the continuation of this process
continuously, the entire area there has become poisonous under
the influence of toxic gases.
In many areas, the water still present in the lake is seen in a
boiling state. Even in the winter season, the temperature is
around 45 degrees. From this, it can be understood how deep
the impact of the volcano in this area of Danaquil.
During the research, scientists have found that there is a glut of
salt inside the volcano here. For this reason, whenever lava
comes out from there, salt also comes out and affects the whole
Even Micro lives can’t survive in water
Lopez Garcia, the leader of the scientific team engaged in
research in this area, has said that there is no life in the water
due to the high salinity there. Micro lives have not been found
in this water. Mr. Lopez was the leader of this French team, a
joint expedition of a team of scientists from France and Spain.
The amount of pH in the water here is also found to be below
zero. Therefore, water based life cannot be imagined there.
Perhaps this is why it has been considered the most difficult
area of the entire earth, where it is impossible to sustain life.
Even here the atmosphere has the effect of this acid and salt. It
does not even create a situation to flourish.
Details of the achievements of this research team have been
published in a scientific journal called Nature Ecology and
Evolution. It has been told that only a well-meaning salt who
likes salt is present there well. By the way, this too has changed
its behavior by understanding the difficult challenges here.
\Micro life has also changed here
This microbe is known as halophililic archia. Due to excess of
salt here, yellow color is also seen in the entire area.
Magnesium is also abundant there among the abundance of
yellow spots among the black. This is probably the effect of the
lava emitted from the volcanic eruption. Due to this explosive-
like environment, life is difficult to survive there.
Type of salt also stops cycle of life here
Scientists in the research of non-life there have found that due
to the magnesium salt there is a breakdown of the
relationship of hydrogen and other bio-substances with the
hydrogen molecules. Similarly, due to salinity and high
temperature, the other conditions that make life there also end.
Although the most difficult area to live in , scientists speculate
that it can be directly related to the deep conditions of
the Earth, but it needs to be further researched.
