Photos of a Giant River that Flows under the Sea

Nature is full of mysteries and some of them are beyond human understanding. Today, we shall have a look at a river that flows at the bottom of the sea. It still puzzles me how that is possible. Why don't you join me in reading the subsequent paragraphs below as we seek to understand more about this phenomenon.

The black sea undersea river is made up of saline water that flows along its sea bed. It remained undiscovered until the year 2010. The discovery was made by a team of scientists from the renown university of Leeds in the United Kingdom. This river is the first of its kind in the entire world.

This under sea river was found to be close to 36 meters deep. The astonishing bit is that the river is almost one kilometer wide. It behalves just like a normal river with waterfalls and cataracts. If this river was on the earth surface, it would have been the sixth largest river in the world.
