Dead Sea Desiccation (2)

In recent years, the Dead Sea, an extremely salty lake and the lowest place on earth, has experienced a rapid decline in water levels.  As a major tourist attraction and source of water, the desiccation of the Dead Sea has caught the attention of the environmental scientists and political leaders around the world. Situated on the east coast of Jordan and bordering Israel and the West Bank to the west, the Dead Sea is of major concern for its creation of sink holes, or subsurface cavities, which are almost always deadly if fallen into. There have been numerous projects that propose ways to save the Dead Sea, but only time and political climate will determine the future of the Dead Sea.
