Did you think what the Earth would look like when all the water resources were dry? James O’Donoghue, a scientist at Japan’s space agency JAXA, has created a video that shows how the Earth will look when all the water resources dry.
Approximately 71 percent of the world is covered with water. Water resources that cover such a large area of the planet are the most important factors that characterize the appearance of the Earth. At the same time, water is one of the essential substances for the continuity of life on Earth. So how will our planet look when all the water resources on Earth are exhausted?
A planetary scientist named James O’Donoghue, who worked at Japan’s space agency JAXA and previously served at NASA, showed how the Earth without water would look. The animation, created by NASA animator Horace Mitchell in 2008, has become a world without water with the changes made by James O’s Donoghue. James O’Donoghue placed a follower in the animation that shows the drop in sea level and speeded up time. At the same time, the resolution of the video has been increased.
If there was no water, the Earth would look like this
When the waters begin to withdraw, there will be land fragments, continental edges, which will appear first. The continental borders of other continents are 3000 meters deep except for the Arctic sea in the north polar region and the continental edge of Antarctica, which is 3500 meters deep.
The middle parts of the oceans are beginning to be seen between 2000 and 3000 meters. The deepest point of the oceans, whose deepest points reach up to 8000 meters, is the Mariana Trench with 10.911 meters.
James O’Donoghue, who worked on the video, explained that the video started intentionally slowing down. O’Donoghue said, surprisingly, a lot of submarine lands appeared in pulling the sea level 10 meters.
Earth’s sea and ocean levels have changed since the planet was formed. In fact, the first ancestors of the people made their intercontinental migration through the lands that appeared as a result of these changes at sea levels.
The video animation, reworked by James O’Donoghue, reveals what the bottom of the oceans and seas look like, while showing the appearance of the Earth without water.
