Aral Sea: The sea that dried up in 40 years - BBC News
Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews The disappearance of the Aral Sea in Central Asia is one of the world's greatest man-made disasters. In Kazakhstan, with the help of the World Bank, more than $80million have been spent trying to save the most northern part of the sea but this has only benefited a few hundred people. In this film, we speak to people still living in deserted fishing ports, to see how their lives have changed, and to find out whether they believe that they'll ever see the sea again.

Aral Sea: Man-made environmental disaster - BBC News
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"
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.

Aral Sea shrinks by 90% prompting huge transformation project
Once the fourth largest lake in the world, Aral Sea in Uzbekistan has shrunk by 90% in recent decades and is now the site of a huge planting project. Report by Lois Swinnerton. #AralSea #Uzbekistan

The Aral Sea has shrunk in size by 90% in recent decades
(7 Apr 2019) LEADIN: Once the fourth largest lake in the world, the Aral Sea has seen itself shrink to a slither of it's original size. All it left in it's trail was dry arid land, which the Uzbek government are now trying to transform into fertile planting terrain in order to stop desertification. STORYLINE: Rusted ships in the desert near the town of Moynaq are silent reminders of the fate of the Aral Sea. Once an important seaport, today Moynaq (Munak) is the victim of a manmade ecological catastrophe that took place here. People left when the lake started to disappear, causing economic and health issues. Now the city is dozens of kilometres from the shoreline of the the Aral Sea and just several thousand residents remain. Desert covers 80 percent of the country and is spreading each year, due to chronic drought. Once the world's fourth-largest lake, the sea has shrunk by at least 90 percent since the rivers that feed it were largely diverted in a Soviet project to boost cotton production in the arid region. The shrunken sea has ruined the once-robust fishing economy and left fishing trawlers stranded in sandy wastelands, leaning over as if they dropped from the air. The sea's evaporation has left layers of highly salted sand, which winds can carry as far away as Scandinavia and Japan, and which plague local people with health troubles. A new initiative to counteract the effects of the harmful program is being supported by the Uzbek government. Dean of the faculty of environment at Karakalpak State University, Yakub Amedov, is hoping that with the help of his students he can help to  change the landscape of the land in Moynaq. "Our main aim is to improve the environmental situation in the Moynaq region. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev supports any initiative of the development of the region. Now students of Karakalpak University are helping to plant the trees. Today we're planting plum, grapes, apple, apricot, cherry. In the future, we plan to make an educational site for students." he says. According to NASA, at the beginning of the 1960s, the Aral Sea received 50 cubic kilometres of fresh water from snowmelt and rainfall. In 1980 that number fell to zero. Since 1985 the Aral Sea has shrunk to a quarter of its original size. One of the ways to stop the desertification is intensive planting, according to Vadim Sokolov, head of the agency for implementation of the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea. "One of the key ways to prevent the spreading of salt and chemicals that have accumulated from the Aral Sea is by tree planting and fixing the sand from the dried-up sea bed" Sokolov says. Sokolov notes that they have  managed to speed up the planting process hopefully setting the program at a faster pace. "More than 500,000 tonnes of seeds were collected in December (2018) and January (2019) and with the help of these seeds today, the middle of March, more than 500,000 hectares can be planted. In the past we were planting 5-10 thousand hectares, now in only three months we have planted 500,000 hectares. We plan to continue this work in the autumn and we plan to plant around a million hectares of the territory. Which is almost a third of the desert, which is on the dried up sea bed." Sokolov hopes to plant around a million hectares of the territory - that's one-third of the desert that once was a seabed.

Aral Sea Full Drone Flight
I had seen the classic images of ships lying moored in the Aral Sea and decided a visit to the Aral Sea would perhaps provide a productive photographic opportunity. It wasn't until I got there, that I learned of the true magnitude of the disaster. When you stand at the port and look at the sheer drop and then into a vast desolate landscape where the sea once was, do you understand what has happened here? Driving into the super bowl is in itself a challenge- the seabed acts like quick sand, and you are limited to how far you can move determined by the tracks before you. As you step out into the bitter cold of the morning, you find the floor littered with sea shells. The Aral Sea is perhaps one of the largest and most visible environmental disasters of the last century. The Aral Sea was a vibrant place which was home to a diverse ecological system. It also provided an extensive fisheries industry for the countries surrounding it. It was not until the Soviets decided to grow cotton that led to the sea disappearing almost completely. As of two weeks before my arrival, the government had the iconic ships removed. I was disappointed not to have an opportunity to see it first hand however in the distance I noticed something new rising from the sands which may or may not beat to the new metronome of our time, oil.

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".

Water Facts
The Earth contains 366,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons of water. That's 366 quintillion gallons of water. Only .007% is potable. Today 7 billion of us share this precious resource. The ice on Kilimanjaro has shrunk 85% in 100 years. The Aral Sea -- once Asia's second-largest lake -- is one tenth the size it was 50 years ago. Groundwater depletion in Mexico City has made it sink 30 feet. 2 million residents now lack piped water. 1.2 billion people worldwide have no access to clean water. It's a thirsty planet. That cup of coffee this morning took 37 gallons of water to produce. That burger for lunch? 2,700 gallons! In the last century, population has tripled, water consumption has increased sixfold. But more people have a mobile phone than running water. We consume more water per capita in the U.S. (151 gallons per day) than in Europe (66 gallons per day) or Sub-Saharan Africa (5 gallons per day). Water sustains agriculture. Water sustains industry. Water sustains energy. Water sustains life. Together we can overcome our water challenges. The best minds are working on it.

Land sinking as Dead Sea shrinks
The Dead Sea in Jordan is shrinking at an alarming rate - a development that has led to the creation of some 3,000 sinkholes along the sea's coasts. The sea has shrunk by a third since the 1960s when its major water source - the River Jordan - was diverted for upstream projects in Israel, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. But for many people, the projects have backfired and the farmers who work near the sea say the once verdant and fertile land has become increasingly barren.

Uzbekistan - Aral Sea In Danger
RR9540/B UZBEKISTAN: ARAL SEA IN DANGER (dur: 5 mins 22 secs) A major international conference has been held in Central Asia on the crisis surrounding the dying of the Aral Sea. Once the world's fourth largest lake, it has shrunk to nearly half its original size, because of a decision by Moscow decades ago to use the rivers feeding the Aral Sea for intensive irrigation. Many environmentalists see the destruction of the whole area as one of the world's worst ecological disasters and fear the water will never return. The people who have lived in the area for thousands of years have lost most of their fishing industry and are being polluted by the contaminated water.

The Shrinking Aral Sea Has Been Reduced To A Mere Sliver
NASA’s Terra satellite documented the slowly shrinking Aral Sea over the course of the past fourteen years starting in 2000. The Aral Sea in Central Asia used to be the fourth largest land locked body of water in the world with its tributary rivers the Syr Darya and the Amu Darya. After being irrigated and diminished by drought, the eastern basin of the Southern Sea has dried up for the first time in an estimated 600 years. NASA’s Terra satellite documented the slowly shrinking sea over the course of the past fourteen years starting in 2000. Philip Micklin, a geographer emeritus from Western Michigan University and an expert on the Aral Sea is quoted as saying: "This part of the Aral Sea is showing major year-to-year variations that are dependent on flow of Amu Darya. I would expect this pattern to continue for some time." During the 1950s and 60s the Soviet Union irrigated the two tributary rivers of the lake for agriculture, which significantly lowered the water level, splitting the water into two parts known as the South Aral Sea in the country of Uzbekistan, and the North Aral Sea located in Kazakhstan. Over the years, the water level has continued to go up and down depending on the precipitation in the area and run off carried by the tributary rivers.

Aral Sea - sandstorms and the fight against desertification | Tomorrow Today
The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth largest lake. But for decades the rivers that feed it have been diverted for irrigation. As a result, the huge body of water between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan has steadily shrunk and is now only 10 percent of its original volume. What remains is a desert of sand, salt and toxic dust containing pesticides, fertilizers and industrial chemicals.Sandstorms carry the dust to surrounding regions, causing widespread desertification and health problems for the local population. Scientists are searching for ways to halt this environmental catastrophe.

Irrigation draining the Aral Sea
Views: 254224 WIRED
The Aral sea disaster. Going there.
The Aral sea was a big sea during the first half of the 20th Century. Then irrigation projects to grow cotton shrunk it to what it is now. Water in it became more salty and fish died. Costal cities like Muynak became inland cities. This film shows what the dusty and flat road to what is left of the sea looks like. We are driving on the plateau, but will soon go down to the remainders of the sea. It was still shrinking in 2018 but there is an increasing amount of initiatives to better the situation. To succeed it needs to be a cooperation between several countries.

Central Asian Countries Prioritize Restoration of Aral Sea
The Central Asian republics have set a strategic task to restore the Aral Sea. The Kazakh Government is actively working to replenish the sea as part of the United Nations Development Program. Trees and bushes are planted on the dried bed of the sea. At the moment, 300,000 hectares of the areas are covered by plants. Environmentalists are discussing the ways to raise the water level in the Aral Sea. One of the ideas is to reconstruct existing irrigation canals. Experts believe that dikes and dams will help save water in the sea. “Based on our observations, the water level has expanded significantly in more than 10 years. At the moment, we can see that the water is reaching a decent level and we hope that it will approach the original level soon. It has a beneficial effect on the fishing industry and the Kazakh economy,” said director of KazEcology Center, Sunkar Zholdybayev. Meanwhile, Uzbekistan has also begun to implement the Revival of the Aral Sea program. The country implemented about 230 projects worth more than US$2 billion aimed to improve the sea. The funds are allocated to construct infrastructural facilities in settlements located on the seashore. According to specialists, a dam and a water reservoir are being constructed on the Amu Darya River. These developments will help retain the water absorbed by the Aral Sea. “The Mezhdurechenskoye water reservoir is located at the section of the Amu Darya River where the river is separated into two branches. The Mezhdurechenskoye water reservoir is the last to receive water that flows along the Amu Darya River and the reservoir can be used to distribute water to other basins,” said Head of International Fund for Saving Aral Sea Agency, Vadim Sokolov. The International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea has proposed to plant greenery on the dried up bed of the sea. Experts said that application of new technologies aimed to improve the quality of water developed in South Korea and Japan should be used to revive the Aral Sea.

Pirates of a dead Sea. The ecological disaster of The Aral Sea.
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.

Since 2006, the Aral sea -- the formerly huge body of water between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan -- has shrunk dramatically.  According to NationalGeographic.com, the eastern part has lost a whopping 80 percent of its water in the short time.  The Aral Sea, before and after (UH.edu) In addition, over the past three decades 60 percent of the water in the lake has disappeared, because farmers back in the 1960s changed the course of two rivers that were flowing into it in order to water crops.  First the sea split into two lakes: the Large Aral Sea and the Small Aral Sea. By 2000, the Large Aral Sea had split again into two bodies. The salt concentration in the water became much higher, and the local fishing industry could no longer survive.  Experts say the southernmost part of the lake could soon disappear forever. please check out my other videos- 1 zika virus https://youtu.be/Qq8weapgPDA 2 magical mooving land real https://youtu.be/LRj3VdzD4k4 3 best inspirational story for students https://youtu.be/9RftH11RYIM 4 aral sea dried up https://youtu.be/5fzXPNpKx74 5 get attension back of your child in study https://youtu.be/mJwbMdJRzWw

White Gold - The True Cost Of Cotton
Fashion Victims? Up to one third of Uzbekistan's workforce is made to labour on cotton farms; denied ownership of the land they work, and forced to labour without reasonable wages they are unable to opt out of cotton cultivation -- those who try are subject to violence, imprisonment and intimidation. Tens of thousands of children are forced to pick the cotton harvest each year. Crucially, the suffering caused by this industry comes at the hands of the government. It is the Uzbek state, not the country's mafia that instigates the abuses connected to the production and sale of cotton turning its people in to a slave nation. For more information please visit www.ejfoundation.org The Environmental Justice Foundation is leading an international campaign to end human rights and environmental abuses in cotton production, and to promote organic and fairly traded cotton. In Uzbekistan, tens of thousands of children, some as young as seven, are taken out of school and forced to work in the cotton fields for little or no money during the harvest. The period can last up to three months, during which older children live in dormitories or classrooms under harsh conditions. The combined effect of exhausting work, a poor diet, lack of clean water and exposure to toxic pesticides has a dramatic impact on health. The cotton industry has also caused an ecological disaster. The Aral Sea, once the world's fourth largest inland lake, providing the region with fish and water, has shrunk to 15% of its original size. The salinity of water and soil has increased, and as desperate farmers apply more water to their fields, they exacerbate the problem. This leads to infertile soil and areas of salty desert contaminated with pesticide residues.

Using Trees to Stop a Lake from Turning into Desert
Just 50 years ago, the Aral Sea, which straddles the nations of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, was the fourth largest lake in the world. But today it is mostly desert, and environmental groups are trying to save what is left. VOA'S Kevin Enochs reports. Originally published at - https://www.voanews.com/a/using-trees-to-stop-a-lake-from-turning-into-desert/4874954.html

Desapareció el cuarto lago más grande del planeta Tierra
En la actualidad La superficie del mar de Aral se ha reducido en un 60%, y su volumen en casi un 80%. En 1960, el mar de Aral era el cuarto lago mayor del mundo, con un área aproximada de 68.042 kilómetros cuadrados, y un volumen de 1100 kilómetros cuadrados. En 1998, ya había descendido hasta 28.687 kilómetros cuadrados, el octavo lago del mundo. Durante el mismo intervalo de tiempo, la salinidad del mar ha aumentado alrededor de 10 gramos por litro, hasta unos 45 gramos por litro.

SUMMARY ======= The Aral Sea () was an endorheic lake (one with no outflow) lying between Kazakhstan (Aktobe and Kyzylorda Regions) in the north and Uzbekistan (Karakalpakstan autonomous region) in the south. The name roughly translates as "Sea of Islands", referring to over 1,100 islands that had dotted its waters; in the Turkic languages aral means "island, archipelago". The Aral Sea drainage basin encompasses Uzbekistan and parts of Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Iran.Formerly the fourth-largest lake in the world with an area of 68,000 km2 (26,300 sq mi), the Aral Sea has been shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet irrigation projects. By 1997, it had declined to 10% of its original size, splitting into four lakes – the North Aral Sea, the eastern and western basins of the once far larger South Aral Sea, and one smaller intermediate lake. By 2009, the southeastern lake had disappeared and the southwestern lake had retreated to a thin strip at the western edge of the former southern sea; in subsequent years, occasional water flows have led to the southeastern lake sometimes being replenished to a small degree. Satellite images taken by NASA in August 2014 revealed that for the first time in modern history the eastern basin of the Aral Sea had completely dried up. The eastern basin is now called the Aralkum Desert. In an ongoing effort in Kazakhstan to save and replenish the North Aral Sea, a dam project was completed in 2005; in 2008, the water level in this lake had risen by 12 m (39 ft) compared to 2003. Salinity has dropped, and fish are again found in sufficient numbers for some fishing to be viable. The maximum depth of the North Aral Sea is 42 m (138 ft) (as of 2008).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 water from the diverted Syr Darya river is used to irrigate about 5 million acres (2 million hectares) of farmland in the Ferghana Valley. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequential serious public health problems. UNESCO added the historical documents concerning the development of the Aral Sea to its Memory of the World Register as a unique resource to study this "environmental tragedy".

Uzbekistan Waste to Energy
Mr. Riccardo Bellassai represents the company Hafner Waste to Energy in Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan has rich and diverse natural environment. However, decades of questionable Soviet policies in pursuit of greater cotton production have resulted in a catastrophic scenario with the agricultural industry being the main contributor to the pollution and devastation of both air and water in the country.[12] The Aral Sea used to be the fourth-largest inland sea on Earth, acting as an influencing factor in the air moisture and arid land use. Since the 1960s, the decade when the misuse of the Aral Sea water began, it has shrunk to less than 50% of its former area and decreased in volume threefold. Reliable, or even approximate data, has not been collected, stored or provided by any organization or official agency. Much of the water was and continues to be used for the irrigation of cotton fields, a crop requiring a large amount of water to grow. The question of who is responsible for the crisis remains open: the Soviet scientists and politicians who directed the distribution of water during the 1960s, or the post-Soviet politicians who did not allocate sufficient funding for the building of dams and irrigation systems.Due to the Aral Sea problem, high salinity and contamination of the soil with heavy elements are especially widespread in Karakalpakstan, the region of Uzbekistan adjacent to the Aral Sea. The bulk of the nation's water resources is used for farming, which accounts for nearly 84% of the water usage and contributes to high soil salinity. Heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers for cotton growing further aggravates soil pollution. The Hafner have the best Solution ,for resolve all problems by the Wasteproblematic. Please contact Mr. Riccardo Bellassai .

These issues are due in large part to Kazakhstan's years under the Soviet Union. Partly because of the country's enormous semi-arid steppe, the Soviet government used Kazakhstan as its nuclear testing site. Along with near-absent pollution controls, this has contributed to an alarmingly high rate of disease in many rural areas. Kazakhstan has identified at least two major ecological disasters within its borders: the shrinking of the Aral Sea, and radioactive contamination at the Semipalatinsk nuclear testing facility (in fact a large zone south of Kourchatov (Курчатов)) and along the Chinese border. The Central Asian Regional Environmental Center is located in Kazakhstan, which fosters regional cooperation on environmental issues. Most of Kazakhstan’s water supply has been polluted by industrial and agricultural runoff and, in some places, radioactivity. The Aral Sea, which is shared with Uzbekistan, has shrunk to three separate bodies of water because of water drawdowns in its tributary rivers. A Soviet-era biological weapons site is a threat because it is located on a former island in the Aral Sea that is now connected with the mainland. The reduction in the Aral Sea’s water surface has exacerbated regional climatic extremes, and agricultural soil has been damaged by salt deposits and eroded by wind. Desertification has eliminated substantial tracts of agricultural land. Plants in industrial centers lack controls on effluents into the air and water. The Semey region in the northeast has long-term radiation contamination from Soviet-era weapons testing. The Ministry of Environmental Protection is underfunded and given low priority. Some new environmental regulation of the oil industry began in 2003, but new oil operations on Kazakhstan’s Caspian coast add to that sea’s already grave pollution. International programs to save the Aral and Caspian seas have not received meaningful cooperation from Kazakhstan or other member nations.
