Lake Sevan (Armenian: Սևանա լիճ Sevana lich) is the largest lake in Armenia and the Caucasus region. It is one of the largest fresh-water high-altitude lakes in the world. Lake Sevan is situated in the central part of the Republic of Armenia, inside the Gegharkunik Province, at the altitude of 1,900m above sea level. The total surface area of its basin is about 5,000 km2, the lake itself is 940 km2, and the volume is 34.0 bln cubic metres. It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. Only 10% of the outgoing water is drained by the Hrazdan (Razdan) river, while the remaining 90% evaporates. Before human intervention dramatically changed the Lake Sevan ecosystem, the lake was 95 metres deep, covered an area of 1,360 km² (5% of Armenia's entire area), had a volume of 58 km³ and a perimeter of 260 km. The lake surface was at an altitude of 1,916 m above sea level. Along with Lake Van and Lake Urmia, Sevan was considered one of the three great lakes of the historical Armenian Kingdom, collectively referred to as the Seas of Armenia; it is the only one within the boundaries of today's Republic of Armenia. The Sevanavank peninsula (formerly an island) is the historic area of the lake at its northern shores.

Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. Panama Canal playlist http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL107330AB7840283E http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_Canal The Panama Canal (Spanish: Canal de Panamá) is a 48-mile (77.1 km) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. There are locks at each end to lift ships up to Gatun Lake (85 feet (26 m) above sea-level). The Gatun Lake was used to reduce the amount of work required for a sea-level connection. The current locks are 110 feet (33.5 m) wide. A third, wider lane of locks is being built. Work on the canal, which began in 1881, was completed in 1914, making it no longer necessary for ships to sail the lengthy Cape Horn route around the southernmost tip of South America (via the Drake Passage) or to navigate the dangerous waters of the Strait of Magellan. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the Panama Canal shortcut made it possible for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in half the time previously required. The shorter, faster, safer route to the U.S. West Coast and to nations in and along the Pacific Ocean allowed those places to become more integrated with the world economy. During this time, ownership of the territory that is now the Panama Canal was first Colombian, then French, and then American before coming under the control of the Panamanian government in 1999. The Panama Canal has seen annual traffic rise from about 1,000 ships when it opened in 1914, to 14,702 vessels in 2008, the latter measuring a total of 309.6 million Panama Canal/Universal Measurement System (PC/UMS) tons. By 2008, more than 815,000 vessels had passed through the canal, many of them much larger than the original planners could have envisioned; the largest ships that can transit the canal today are called Panamax. The American Society of Civil Engineers has named the Panama Canal one of the seven wonders of the modern world... French construction, 1881--89 In 1881, the first attempt to construct a sea-level canal began under the leadership of Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez Canal, with substantial financing and support from Paris. The French effort went bankrupt after losing an estimated 22,000 lives and reportedly spending US$287,000,000, and was largely abandoned by 1890.... United States acquisition, 1904 In 1904, the United States, under President Theodore Roosevelt, bought the French equipment and excavations for US $40 million, paid the new country of Panama US $10 million plus more each year, and began work on the Panama Canal on May 4... The building of the canal was completed in 1914, 401 years after Panama was first crossed by Vasco Núñez de Balboa. One of several new innovations was the four to eight electrical-powered "mule engines" on each side of the locks that were attached to each ship to stabilize their passage through the locks as they were guided through by canal pilots. In the end, the engineers and workers minimized the mosquito threat; moved, rebuilt, and expanded the Panama Railroad; excavated over 200,000,000 cu yd (150,000,000 m3) of earth; built the world's largest (then) dam and a lake; poured about 2,000,000 cu yd (1,500,000 m3) of concrete creating a spillway at Gatun Lake to control its height; and formed three sets of double 110 feet (34 m) by 1,000 ft (300 m) ship's locks, then the largest concrete pour in the world. This was supported by an extensive buildup of U.S.-built, then-modern, heavy-duty excavation and construction equipment, and one of the world's earliest and most extensive electrical systems, used to power and control the flow of water into the locks and spillway. The United States spent almost $375,000,000 (roughly equivalent to $8,600,000,000 now), including $12,000,000 to build facilities used to guard the canal, to finish the project. This was by far the largest American engineering project of that or any previous era. The canal was formally opened on August 15, 1914, with the passage of the cargo ship SS Ancon. Coincidentally, this was also the same month that fighting in World War I began in Europe. The advances in hygiene resulted in a relatively low death toll during the American construction; still, about 5,600 workers died during this period (1904--14), bringing the total death toll for the construction of the canal to around 27,500...

The Panama Canal is approximately 80 kilometers long between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The Canal uses a system of locks that function as water lifts, raising the ships from sea level (the Pacific or the Atlantic) to the level of Gatun Lake (26 meters above sea level); ships then sail the channel through the Continental Divide.

http://www.learningdslrvideo.com/night-drive-haleakala/ On my vacation to Maui I wanted to capture one awesome photograph that I could use on my about page on my site. I had found an awesome shot on 500px by Eric Kraus http://www.facebook.com/erickrausphotography http://www.500px.com/photo/4504335 that inspired me to make the journey to the summit of Haleakala (thanks to Eric for giving me permission to use his photo in this video). I got up early for my night drive from sea level to 10k feet to capture the sunrise. Not knowing the island well I began to think that all the gas stations didn't open until 5am and I would have to coast down the mountain if i ran out of gas at the summit which was how it was looking, but I finally found one. Once I hit 8,000' feet I was in the clouds I started to worry me that I came all this way for nothing. Perhaps an awesome shot was not in the cards for me. I was hoping for somewhat if a spiritual experience by myself to 'worship' Haleakalā "house of the sun", but there were surprisingly more people at the summit than I thought. However, everyone was very quiet because they either wanted that same experience as me or just tired from getting up early. When the sun rose and hit my face it felt amazing because I was so cold and wet. It happened really fast like an explosion of light and I know others experience it too and I heard some 'ah' from the crowd. This is when I started shooting like crazy and ended up getting what I consider an awesome shot for me site. I ran the cameras on the way down to and I'm glad I did because the trip down was not uneventful. Watch my downhill skateboarding Haleakalā coming soon.

The volcano 'Mauna Kea' is the highest peak of the Hawaiian Islands and - by the way - the highest mountain of the world. The mountain measures 10,205m from the bottom of the sea to its summit. So, it is 6,000m below sea level and 4,205m above sea level. At its top there are several observatories from American, British, Canadian, French and Chilean organizations. The access road diverts from the saddle road (#200) at an altitude of 2,200m and has a length of 12km. So, from there the altitude difference still is 2,000m. It is mostly paved, but there is a gravel section of 6km in its middle. Thus, a four-wheel driven car is absolutely mandatory. However, the 'Mauna Kea Access Road' is one the world's highest pass roads - even to reach a summit by car. Note that a car's power reduces significantly by 40% because of decreased oxygen saturation (-40%). However, the highest point is not at the observatories, but on the peak (vulcano edge) near to the buildings. An hiking path of 700m length and +80m height difference must be surmounted. You will be rewarded with an incredible view - also to its neighbor, the 'Mauna Kea' which is the highest active volcano in the world (4,170m). Some more technical details: Age of the vulcano: 1,000,000 years approx. Last eruption is dated 2500 bc. First ascent by Joseph F. Goodrich in 1823. The shortest distance from the coast (sea level) to its peak of 4,205m is from 'Hilo' (=62km) and some 85km from the much nicer western coast ('Waikoloa Beach'). The view from the Peak reaches a radius of almost 350 km.

This article was contributed by the STOMP Team. A shape-changing creature was caught on the camera of a submersible at around 1,144m below sea level. The video has gone viral recently, becoming a topic point online. Experts are baffled at the creature, which had a flat, hook like shape at the start of the video. But it soon changes shape, and starts too look more like a jellyfish. Its head has strips which glow, making it fairly distinct even at those depths. However, the end of the video shows the creature getting ripped in two after going to close to what seems to be the suction stream from the submersible.
