Blood Falls In Antarctica

Published June 22, 2016
Blood Falls is a waterfall in Antarctica red as blood.
Antarctica bleeds. But Blood Falls is not due to global warming, but iron-rich water flowing out from underneath the glacier. When the iron in the water comes in contact with oxygen in the air rust is formed - thus the red color.

Blood Falls flows out onto a frozen lake in Taylor Valley, which is one of the McMurdo Dry Valleys - a series of ice-free valleys on Antarctica. The bottom photo shows a tent, which can be used to compare sizes.
