River under the amazon

1118Scientists from the Brazilian National Observatory were quick to clarify information about the allegedly discovered underground river that flows under the Amazon. It turned out that this is just an underground salt water tank that may not even fall into the Atlantic Ocean.
The studies in question began in the 80s of the last century, when information about the soil composition under the Amazon came into the hands of scientists. The data was transferred to the researchers by Petrobras, which drilled a number of wells in search of minerals.

The group of Walia Hamza later found out that at a depth of several kilometers under the Amazon there is still water. The “river,” as the scientists did not accurately express, has a length of 6 km. It was formed thanks to the waters of the Amazon, which seep through the soil and accumulate above the waterproof horizons.

As for the chemical composition, according to Petrobras geologist Dr. Figueirado, there is no room for fresh water in underground reservoirs, so it is most likely all salty there.

Now scientists have to figure out the flow of water in the underground reservoir, and also to find out whether it has access to the Atlantic Ocean.
