Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

The shrinking of the Aral Sea -  "One of the planet's worst environmental disasters"
 
19:07
The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters". The region's once prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequent serious public health problems. The retreat of the sea has reportedly also caused local climate change, with summers becoming hotter and drier, and winters colder and longer. Put together for the MSc in Environmental Technology.

The drying up of the Aral Sea is one of the greatest environmental disasters in history. Between 1954 and 1960, the government of the former Soviet Union ordered the construction of a 500 km-long canal that would take a third of the water from the Amu Darya River for an immense area of irrigated land in order to grow cotton in the region. The increasing need for water, due to bad transport management and a lack of foresight and efficiency in land irrigation, meant that more water had to be diverted from rivers flowing into the Aral Sea. As a result, in the eighties, the water reaching the port was as little as 10% of the amount in 1960, and the Aral Sea began to dry up. Consequently, the Aral Sea currently occupies half of its original surface area and its volume has decreased by a quarter, 95% of the nearby reservoirs and wetlands have become deserts and more than 50 lakes from deltas with a surface area of 60,000 hectares have dried up. In terms of climate, this process has eliminated the area’s environmental shock absorbing capacity, making winters and summers harsher, with a subsequent increase in severe droughts. The wind has displaced tons of the saline sand that was originally at the bottom of the dried-up area to a distance of up to 200 km, which has drastically exacerbated the situation. Added to this, fertilisers and pesticides were used indiscriminately, polluting the air and groundwater. The Soviet goal to have saline water at four times the limit recommended by the WHO reduced the groundwater level from 53 to 36 metres, which in turn caused serious problems with the supply of drinking water. The consequences for the health of the population have also been extremely serious. The region has the highest infant mortality rates in all of the former Soviet Union. Chronic bronchitis has increased by 3000% and arthritis by 6000%. In the Uzbek region of Karakalpakstan, anaemia is epidemic among women and 97% of them have haemoglobin levels lower than the 110 grams per litre of blood established by the WHO. Experts point out that this is caused by the consumption of stagnant water containing zinc and magnesium. In the same zone of Uzbekistan, liver cancer increased by 200% from 1981 to 1987, throat cancer by 25% and infant mortality by 20%. Also, cases of hepatitis, respiratory disease, eye-related illness and intestinal infection in the region are seven times higher than in 1960. All of this occurred in a relatively short period of time and the most shocking thing is that it happened with an almost total lack of international awareness. In 2003, satellite pictures from NASA demonstrated the full scale of the disaster and what many scientists had already announced. World opinion is now mobilising and we are beginning to find out the full extent of the current human disaster. In January 1994, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan signed an agreement pledging 1% of their budgets to contribute to the recovery of the sea; however, cooperation among these countries has been minimal. Currently, the northern zone of the Aral Sea is recovering slightly as a result of the construction of the Kokaral dam by the Kazak Government to retain water that would normally flow into Uzbek territorial waters. more information at www.wearewater.org

The Aral Sea story
 
03:07
I did this for a final project in my international relations class. I'm quite interested in Central Asia and the Aral Sea region, so I did this to teach people a little bit about what's happened there in the past 50 years. This story really shows how much of an impact humans can have on the environment in a very short time. It's an important story to tell, but I've found that few people really know what's going on. Imagine if what North America would be like if both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario disappeared. Well, that's the amount of water that the Aral Sea has lost.

Resurrecting the Aral Sea

Aral Sea (2007): For decades, the Aral Sea has been described as dying and beyond salvation. But now, the water is flowing back, bringing economic revival and hope for the future. For downloads and more information visit http://www.journeyman.tv/57367/short-films/aral-sea.html Fifty years ago, the Soviets diverted the rivers that fed into the Aral sea to irrigate crops. The sea shrunk to half its size, salinity increased, the natural ecosystem collapsed and people moved away in search of jobs. But now, thanks to a new dam, water levels have risen by 4 meters. People are returning in the hope the sea will make a full recovery. As one man states; "If the sea comes back, life will change for the better".

Aral Sea Catastrophe
 
05:11
Death of Aral Sea, winds rise and spread the bottom salt on hundreds of kilometers around. Aral a once-large saltwater lake straddling the boundary between Kazakstan to the north and Uzbekistan to the south. The shallow Aral Sea was formerly the world's fourth largest body of inland water. It nestles in the climatically inhospitable heart of Central Asia, to the east of the Caspian Sea. The Aral Sea is of great interest and increasing concern to scientists because of the remarkable shrinkage of its area and volume in the second half of the 20th century. This change is due primarily to the diversion (for purposes of irrigation) of the riverine waters of the Syr Darya and Amu Darya, which discharge into the Aral Sea and are its main sources of inflowing water. The sea's northern shore—high in some places, low in others—was indented by several large bays. The low-lying and irregular eastern shores were interrupted in the north by the huge delta of the Syr Darya and in the south were bordered by a wide tract of shallow water. The equally vast Amu Darya delta lay on the lake's southern shore, and along the lake's western periphery extended the almost unbroken eastern edge of the 820-foot- (250-metre-) high Ustyurt Plateau. Shrinkage of the Aral Sea, 1960--99.From about 1960 the Aral Sea's water level was systematically and drastically reduced because of the diversion of water from the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers for purposes of agricultural irrigation. As the Soviet government converted large acreages of pastures or untilled lands in Uzbekistan, Kazakstan, Turkmenistan, and elsewhere into irrigated farmlands by using the waters of the Amu Darya and Syr Darya, the amount of water from these rivers that reached the Aral Sea dropped accordingly. By the 1980s, during the summer months, the two great rivers virtually dried up before they reached the lake. The Aral Sea began to quickly shrink because of the evaporation of its now-unreplenished waters. By the late 1980s, the lake had lost more than half the volume of its water. The salt and mineral content of the lake rose drastically because of this, making the water unfit for drinking purposes and killing off the once-abundant supplies of sturgeon, carp, barbel, roach, and other fishes in the lake. The fishing industry along the Aral Sea was thus virtually destroyed. The ports of Aral in the northeast and Mŭynoq in the south were now many miles from the lake's shore. A partial depopulation of the areas along the lake's former shoreline ensued. The contraction of the Aral Sea also made the local climate noticeably harsher, with more extreme winter and summer temperatures. By 1989 the Aral Sea had receded to form two separate parts, the "Greater Sea" in the south and the "Lesser Sea" in the north, each of which had a salinity almost triple that of the sea in the 1950s. In the late 1990s an island in the Aral Sea, Vozrozhdenya, became the centre of environmental concern. This was of special concern because Vozrozhdenya had been a testing ground for Soviet biological weapons during the Cold War. In addition to testing done there on such agents as tularemia and the bubonic plague, hundreds of tons of live anthrax bacteria were buried on the island in the 1980s. In 1999 still-living anthrax spores were discovered on the site, and scientists feared that when the island was no longer surrounded by water, land vertebrates could carry anthrax to populated areas. Other environmental problems plagued the region as well. By the end of the century the Aral had receded into three separate lakes. The level of the sea had dropped to 125 feet (36 metres) above sea level, and the water volume was reduced by 75 percent of what it had been in 1960. Almost no water from the Amu Darya and the Syr Darya reached the sea, and, unless drastic action were taken, it seemed likely that the Aral Sea could disappear within 20 to 30 years, leaving a large desert in its place. The health costs to people living in the area were beginning to emerge. Hardest hit were the Karakalpaks, who live in the southern portion of the region. Exposed seabeds led to dust storms that blew across the region, carrying a toxic dust contaminated with salt, fertilizer, and pesticides. Health problems occurred at unusually high rates—from throat cancers to anemia and kidney diseases. Infant mortality in the region was among the highest in the world.

The Aral Sea Disaster.
 
01:16
The Aral Sea is one of the World's worst man-made disasters to ever happen. But if we all try our best to help, we can fix all of the damage we have caused. The clock is ticking. and the time is almost up. The Increasingly salty water has plenty of fertilizers and pesticides in it, making the water unsafe to drink and the crusted salt from the dried parts of the lake is blowing into the fields, degenerating the soil. Now that most parts of the lake is dried up, people call it the Aral desert, due to the abandoned boats and the cracking, salt crusted ground. The Aral Sea is Surrounded by the mainlands, far away from the oceans and seas. The Aral Sea is a very valuable resource to the people because the Sea was in the mainlands. It was and still is very far away from any other seas and main bodies of water. So, it was the only source of water around in that region. So, if the people of Uzbekistan took away all of their only water source, It would be harder to find drinking water and bathing water and there wouldn’t be any more fish in the lake, since there wouldn’t be a lake at all. If this ecosystem disappeared, there would be a huge problem for all biotic factors and It wouldn’t benefit anyone in this situation. If we reduce the water taken out of the lake and leave it alone... The Sea will Eventually come back slowly, Fish will slowly come back Jobs on the water will be restored. Will take a very long time Agriculture will be paused and all food will be lost and everyone and everything will die Solution #3 It will take a long time to do but if we can find a faster way to restore water that would be better before we take the longer way. If we build a dam... A quicker way to get water back and is already working Prevents floods and large amounts of water from coming in Very Expensive Can stop wildlife from getting from one place to another Solution #2 It is a bit more on the expensive side but, it won’t take as long as just leaving it alone, and it will have faster results. But before we use all of this money, we should find a more cheaper and more efficient way. If Farmers would stop wasting so much water and we tax the water that everyone is using... Can raise money for further solutions Farmers might stop farming if expensive get too high People might Protest This is the most logical solution out of all. If we charge people for the water they are using, they will stop wasting so much and it will help the government raise money for other solutions they didn’t have enough money to do before. First, we should build a dam (which we have already have done in 2005), improve irrigation, find other natural pesticides and fertilizers that don’t harm the water and what’s in it, eventually get a majority of the water back, and then desalinate the water that has been contaminated by the fertilizers and pesticides that was there from earlier years. My plan is to add a price to the water the people are using so we are not using as much water as we were before, since people wouldn’t be wasting what they paid for, and the government would be raising money for other projects like desalination and improving irrigation. So, it would be a good solution since it can raise awareness of what is happening and is raising money to fix the problem. My plan is the most effective because it is not as complicated and expensive as building another dam or improving irrigation. Both of those solutions do work, but they both are very expensive to put together and they both require a lot of time to be investing too. So, it would be more logical to add a price to the water to raise funds for bigger projects and raise awareness around Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Made with http://biteable.com

The Aral Sea was the world’s fourth largest lake, but also the site of one of its worst man-made disasters. In the 1960s, a massive irrigation project diverted its water elsewhere, causing the lake to shrink and eventually dry up. But in recent years, thanks to large-scale restoration projects, its northern part has sprung back to life. Michal Bardavid visited the town of Aralsk, and found out that as water slowly fills the lake once again, hopes are seeping into the hearts of residents living in this thriving fishing community.

The Aral Sea formed about 5.5 million years ago in the area of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Central Asia. Formerly one of the four largest lakes in the world with an area of 26,300 square miles, the Aral Sea has been steadily shrinking since the 1960's. The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters".

The Shrinking Aral Sea - Uzbekistan
 
13:24
July 2001 For 50 years Soviet leaders diverted the rivers which feed the sea to irrigate cotton. And when it became clear that the land wasn't suited for the thirsty crop the planners simply increased the use of hazardous chemicals. "It is the world's largest man- made environmental disaster", says Ian Small for Medecins Sans Frontiers in Uzbekistan. The charity usually operates in war zones, but for the first time it has now set up a project devoted solely to an environmental catastrophe. The war here is against tuberculosis, kidney disease and cancers - plaguing the people of the region. Some are caused by toxins, some by the high levels of salt in the water. "Almost nothing grows and it's hard for people -- salt concentrates in their joints and they can't walk for a long time...", says Aigali Tankimalov who sailed the Aral Sea for 29 years. Now the wreck of the vessel he commanded in the navy sits opposite his front door -- and the nearest water is 100 kilometres away. The last of the 20 or so species of fish that lived in the Aral Sea died out in the 1980s, the victims of an environmental catastrophe. Yet despite the dramatic evidence of environmental destruction, Uzbekistan's new leaders continue to grow cotton and scientist fear the damage is irreparable.

► How Soviet pollution destroyed the Aral Sea
 
04:16
In October 1990 Western scientists confirmed the virtual disappearance of the Aral Sea in Soviet Central Asia, formerly the fourth largest inland sea in the world. The loss of sea water was the result of 60 years of intensive agriculture and pollution by the Soviet authorities. It is considered the biggest manmade loss of water in recorded history. The surrounding areas were devastated. Local fisherman watched as the shore gradually receded and fish stocks ran out. Local children fell victim to respiratory illnesses. Professor Denys Brunsden, of London's King's College, was one of the first Western scientists to visit the Aral Sea in 1990. He spoke to Witness about the environmental devastation that he saw.

However, history teaches us that such interventions on natural systems have, almost always, resulted in troubles. I discuss, in this video, about a similar scheme launched by the Soviet government in the 1960s which resulted in the drying up of the Aral Sea.

How Did A Sea Disappear?
 
01:39
The Aral Sea, once the world’s fourth largest lake, has almost disappeared in just 40 years. Situated between southern Kazakhstan and northern Uzbekistan, this salt lake was dealt a devastating blow in the mid 20th century when the soviet government controlled this region. In an effort to create farmland by irrigating the surrounding desert regions, the soviets diverted two vital rivers that fed into the Aral Sea, but diverting these rivers deprived the lake of crucial water sources. The area’s once-thriving fishing communities watched as their livelihood dried up. A few years into the 21st century, just 10% of the sea remained. Today entire generations have no recollection of its former glory but there is hope. In 2005 the World Bank funded the construction of new dams, in an effort to save the lake. Thanks to this work, a small section of the sea has returned, and fishermen are once again able to bring in catches - albeit much smaller quantities. Despite this progress, there’s still a long way to go to transform what is still largely a desolate ship graveyard.

Europe is its major buyer. But while the former Soviet Republic is at the forefront of global cotton production, its human rights and environmental record lags far behind the rest of the world. Forced child labour, human rights violations, excessive pesticide use, the draining of an ocean and severe poverty are all rife in cotton production in Uzbekistan.

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Kazakhstan's Aral Sea was once the world's fourth largest lake, a rich haven for fish, birds and other wildlife. It was also home to bustling fishing ports such as Aralsk. But starting in the 1960s, massive agricultural expansion saw much of the water from the two rivers that feed the lake diverted into thousands of canals to irrigate crops. This caused the Aral Sea to shrink by 70% and split into two. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Pirates of a dead Sea. The ecological disaster of The Aral Sea.
 
03:46
Pirates of a Dead Sea Pirates who plunder rusty carcasses and sell to China. The Aral Sea (loosely translated as "Sea of Islands") is a lake between Kazakhstan in the North and Uzbekistan in the South. It was once one of the four largest lakes in the world with an area of 68,000 square km's but has rapidly shrunk since the 1960's after the rivers that fed it were diverted for Soviet irrigation projects and to harness hydro-electric power. The Daily Telegraph in 2010 (2010-04-05) described this shrinking and subsequent consequences as "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters." Thriving fishing communities were destroyed and the local climatic impact of the severe and rapid change has led to long cold winters and hot dry summers. The area is severely polluted from Industrial waste and fertilizer run offs. And if this wasn't enough consider the horrendous consequences of the Cold War Biological Weapons facility on the island of Vorozhdenya where Tuloremia and the Bubonic Plague were produced and where hundreds of tons of Anthrax bacteria were buried in the 1980's. In 1999 live Anthrax bacteria spores that had been buried there, were discovered. Scientists warned of the spread of this lethal bacteria to the mainland by birds and animals. According to the Kazakh Scientific Center for Quarantine and Zoonotic infections, all of the Anthrax burial sites were contaminated.. The Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan announced in 2006 that a consortium of oil and gas companies had signed a production agreement. The Minister said that "The Aral Sea is largely unknown, but it holds a lot of promise." He added ominously: "There is risk of course...." (Itar- Tass News Agency). In the meantime hardy desert grass begins to grow offering food for the newly introduced camels. Also the Pirates of the sand come and eke out a living collecting steel to export to China. КАТЯ ЗООПАРК 's documentary brilliantly captures the life of these inventive scavengers. The documentary is part of SEATOMORROW :vimeo.com/59211963 Director: Katerina Suvorova/Kazakhstan|AlmatyCinematographer -- Eugen Schlegel/Germany|Berlin. The first part of this documentary was titled "Pirates of the Sand" by КАТЯ ЗООПАРК (www.vimeo.com/64726850) and included in this video is the portrayal of the disastrous consequences of man messing with nature. www.telegraph.co.uk/...a/...Aral-sea-ever-return.html www.news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6538219.stm www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/...ex.php?title=Dead_sea www.newworldencyclopedia.org/Aralsea I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)
