Perhaps a fifth ocean will appear

Jul 24, 2020

According to American and British scientists, it is possible that in the distant future, another ocean will appear within the territory of Ethiopia.
“This will take 5-10 million years. It is assumed that an ocean will form on the site of the Afar desert of Ethiopia, ” NBC reports.
The desert is located on three tectonic plates that are slowly moving away from each other. In 2005, a 56-kilometer-long crack appeared here.
Scientists continue to use modern instruments to observe the desert.
