Scientists Say 120,000 Cubic Miles Of Freshwater Under Sea
Scientists in Australia believe there are about 120,000 cubic miles of water underneath the ocean floor — 100 times more than we have used since 1900.By Collin Ruane | December 9, 2013
Researchers in Australia claim to have found a treasure trove of freshwater beneath the ocean floor.
The findings were first revealed in the scientific journal Nature Thursday. The authors of the study say there's "mounting evidence" freshwater could be found globally.
The study, led by a scientist from Flinders University, says these reserves were formed hundreds of thousands of years ago. The water filtered through the ground before it ended up being covered by ocean water.
