The water in the lakes near the Dead Sea in Jordan has turned pink-red

Residents of the Jordan Valley (Karak governorate) were surprised to find that the water in the lakes near the Dead Sea has turned pink-red.

Normally clear water comes from the mountains to Ghor Al Haditha and fills the craters that form on the shores of the drying Dead Sea.

This red lake is isolated from the sea and does not flow into it. The water is currently being studied by specialists.

In addition, geological and biological studies have begun to determine the cause and source of the red color. Bacteria? Red algae? Dissolving minerals?
