Scientists find enormous freshwater reserves beneath the oceans


Flinders University reports that scientists have discovered enormous freshwater reserves beneath the oceans. They posit that these freshwater reserves offer new opportunities to put an end to an imminent global water crisis.

According to a study detailed in the journal Nature, scientists found that about 500,000 cubic km of low-salinity water are concealed beneath the seabed on continental shelves worldwide. Low-salinity water has been located off Australia, China, North America and South Africa.
