Saltiest Lake

Posted by admin 21 Dec 2015 Comments Off on Saltiest Lake

The World Record of ‘saltiest lake’ has been achieved by Don Juan Pond from Wright Valley, Victoria Land, Antarctica.

With a salinity of over 40%, Don Juan Pond is the saltiest body of water in the world. It is a small lake, only 100m by 300m, and on average 0.1m deep, but it is so salty that even at the temperature as low as -30 degrees Celsius, it never freezes. It is 18 times saltier than seawater, compared to the Dead Sea which is only 9.6 times saltier than sea water.
