“Mind-Blowing” Discovery: Oldest Body of Seawater Found in Giant Crater
Article Courtesy: | By: Christine Dell’Amore | Originally Published: 11/21/2013

Scientists drilling the United States’ biggest crater have tapped into the oldest body of seawater ever found.

They weren’t expecting to find the ancient water, estimated to be 100 to 145 million years old, while boring a hole 1.1 miles (1.8 kilometers) deep into the massive crater, located under the Chesapeake Bay.

The crater was formed about 35 million years ago when a large rock or chunk of ice slammed into what’s now the mouth of the bay, off Cape Charles, Virginia, hollowing out a 56-mile-wide (90-kilometer-wide) hole in the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean.

“The water was in the sediment long before the impact occurred. The impact simply reshuffled the sediment in large blocks, which helped preserve it,” said study leader Ward Sanford, a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey.

The asteroid wallup also spawned gigantic tsunamis that possibly hit the Blue Ridge Mountains more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) away. (See “Asteroid Impacts: 10 Biggest Known Hits.”)

The seawater trapped deep underground is now in an area roughly the size of a large lake—about 60 square miles (155 square kilometers) across.

Finding this unprecedented time capsule of Cretaceous seawater “was a little bit mind-blowing,” Sanford said.

Sanford and his colleagues drilled into the crater in 2005 during a joint project with the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, but it took several years to gather additional data that could determine the water’s age.

All Fish Caught Must be Landed, EU Rules

Fishermen will have to land almost all they catch whether it is part of their quota or undersized, as part of phase two of the new EU fish policy that comes into effect from January.

Irish fishermen say it is a recipe for disaster and the first phase, introduced last January for certain types of fish, is producing chaos.

The previous policy saw an estimated one of every dozen fish caught thrown back into the sea because they were forbidden to be caught in a particular area of the sea at a certain time.

This effort to restrict the amount and types of fish being taken out of the sea in a bid to reverse the disastrous effects of overfishing was judged to have largely failed and placed a huge burden on the industry.

The new policy requires that fishermen land all their catch and have it deducted from the national quota they are allowed for the year while they are not paid for undersize fish.

Since January the new policy has been in operation for pelagic and industrial fisheries in all EU waters. It encompasses herring, whiting, tuna, borefish, sardines, and bluefin tuna.

In the new year it will be extended to demersal fish that are the bedrock of the Irish fishing industry — haddock in the north-west and Irish Sea, whiting in the Celtic Sea, prawns that are the mainstay of the business in all areas, and also hake, plaice, and sole.
