Origin of Great Salt Lake

Post  taixyz1992 on Mon Nov 22, 2010 1:10 pm

Great Salt Lake is a remnant of a much larger prehistoric lake called Lake Bonneville which, at its peak surface area, was nearly as large as Lake Michigan, which has surface area of 22,400 square miles (58,000 km2) and is 923 ft (281 m) deep at its deepest point.[7][8] Lake Bonneville covered roughly ten times the area of Great Salt Lake[2] and was over 1,000 feet (305 m) deep.[9] It covered much of present-day Utah and small portions of Idaho and Nevada during the Pleistocene Epoch, more commonly known as the Great Ice Age, between 32,000 and 14,000 years ago. Lake Bonneville existed until about 16,800 years ago, when a large portion of the lake was released through the Red Rock Pass in Idaho. With the change in climate, the remaining lake began drying up, leaving Great Salt Lake, Utah Lake, Sevier Lake, Rush Lake, and Little Salt Lake as remnants

Two people were killed and more than 80 others injured when a passenger plane rolled off the runway after making an emergency landing at a Moscow airport, Russian officials say.

All of the plane's three engines had failed by the time it landed at Domodedovo airport.

The Russian-built TU-154 was carrying about 170 passengers and crew en route for southern Russia.

The plane broke up after leaving the runway.

"As a result of the TU-154 making an emergency landing at Domodedovo airport, two people died," Tatyana Morozova, a spokeswoman for Moscow transport investigators, said.

Civil aviation official Sergey Izvolskiy told broadcaster NTV that the plane belonging to Dagestan Airlines had taken off from Vnukovo airport in Moscow, bound for Makhachkala in Dagestan.

Shortly after take-off, the crew reported engine problems and were forced carry out an emergency landing at Domodedovo, Mr Izvolskiy said.

"Following the landing, the plane slid off the runway and broke up", he said.

The BBC's Steve Rosenberg says the plane broke in two during the landing
The cause of the engine failure is under investigation.

One passenger told AFP news agency the landing was very rough, then there was a "big shock" as the plane hit something.

"I was sitting in the middle. The plane broke in two about four or five seats in front of me as if it had been cut, completely," Gamzat Guitinomagomedov said.

"We saw the people who were there, they had broken legs, blood everywhere."

Russia's national carrier airline Aeroflot took all its remaining 23 TU-154 aircraft out of service in January, after a series of crashes led to safety fears.

The Tupolev mid-range jets are banned from landing in Europe because of excessive engine noise.

But the aircraft are still used by smaller airlines across Russia and the former Soviet Union.

Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed earlier this year when a Polish Airforce TU-154 crashed in western Russia.
