10 Incredible Conflux Of The World

A Conflux, also known as a Confluence is the meeting of two or more Bodies of Water. It refers either to the point where a Tributary joins a Larger River, called the Main Stem or where two Streams meet to become the Source of a River of a New Name.

As the Confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania creating the Ohio River.

The term is also used to describe the meeting of Tidal or other Non-Riverine Bodies of Water, such as two Canals or a Canal and a Lake.

Below is a collection of 10 Incredible Conflux Of The World. The Confluences below were selected for their Dramatic Visual Contrast.

Thus, culturally significant confluences such as the Sangam near Allahabad, (India) where the Sacred Rivers Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati meet to create “One Of The Holiest Places In Hinduism”, were not included for this reason.

01. Confluence of the Rhone and Arve Rivers in Geneva, Switzerland

In this incredible photograph we see the confluence of the Rhone and Arve rivers in Geneva, Switzerland. The river on the left is the Rhone, which is just exiting Lake Lehman. The river on the right is the Arve, which receives water from the many glaciers of the Chamonix Valley (mainly the Mer de Glace) before flowing North-West into the Rhone on the West side of Geneva, where its much higher level of silt brings forth a striking contrast between the two rivers.

02. Confluence of the Ilz, Danube and Inn Rivers in Passau, Germany

The Ilz is a relatively Small Mountain Stream and has a Blueish Color while the Inn is a fairly Large River flowing in from Salzburg, Austria at the top. The Inn River has more water flow than the Danube, yet flowing away from the City the Three Combined Rivers are called Danube. This photo was taken from the Oberhaus-Fortress (now a City Museum) on top of the Ilzstadt Cliff above the city of Passau in Lower Bavaria, Germany. It is also known as the Dreiflüssestadt or “City of Three Rivers”.

03. Confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers at Cairo, IL, USA

The Ohio River becomes a Tributary of the Mississippi River directly South of Cairo, Illinois, a Small City on the spit of land where the Rivers converge (at center of this astronaut photograph). Brown, sediment-laden water flowing generally Northeast to South from the Ohio River is distinct from the Green and relatively sediment-poor water of the Mississippi River (flowing northwest to south). The color of the Rivers in this image is reversed from the usual condition of a Green Ohio and a Brown Mississippi. This suggests that the very high rainfall in December 2005 over the Appalachians and the northeastern United States has led to greater-than-normal amounts of sediment in the Rivers and Streams of the Ohio River Watershed.


 

04. Confluence of the Jialing and Yangtze Rivers in Chongqing, China

 Jialing River on the right stretches 119 kilometers. In the City of Chongqing it falls into Yangtze River. The clean water of Jialing River meets the Brownish Yellow Water of Yangtze River. The Yangtze becomes more powerful after it absorbs the water of Jialing as it continues its Path, passing through the Three Gorges and stretching thousands of miles.


 

05. Confluence of the Rio Negro and the Rio Solimoes near Manaus, Brazil

The Meeting of Waters is the confluence between the Rio Negro, a river with Dark (almost Black Coloured) Water and the Sandy-coloured Amazon River or Rio Solimões, as it is known the upper section of the Amazon in Brazil. For 6 km (3.7 mi) the River’s Waters run side by side without mixing. It is one of the main Tourist Attractions of Manaus, Brazil. This Phenomenon is due to the differences in Temperature, Speed and Water Density of the Two Rivers. The Rio Negro flows at near 2 km per hour at a temperature of 28°C, while the Rio Solimões flows between 4 to 6 km per hour a temperature of 22°C.


 

06. Confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers in Canyonlands National Park, Utah, USA

The Green River is a very Long Stream forming in the Wind River Range of the Rocky Mountains in Bridger Teton National Forest of Sublette County, Wyoming. It winds its way south into Utah, turning east into Colorado and finally back south down into Utah where it terminates at the confluence of the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park in San Juan County.


 

07. Confluence of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers in Lytton, BC, Canada

The Thompson River ends here in Lytton, British Columbia, Canada where it meets the Fraser River. The contrast is striking as the clear Thompson River water joins with the muddy Fraser.


 

08. Confluence of the Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers in Devprayag, India

 Devprayag is a town and a nagar panchayat (municipality) in Tehri Garhwal district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is one of the Panch Prayag (five confluences) of Alaknanda River and it is where the Ganges River is formed. The Alaknanda rises at the confluence and feet of the Satopanth and Bhagirath Kharak glaciers in Uttarakhand. The headwaters of the Bhagirathi are formed at Gaumukh, at the foot of the Gangotri glacier and Khatling glaciers in the Garhwal Himalaya. These two sacred rivers join to form the Ganges (Ganga) in Devprayag.


 

09. Confluece of the Mosel and Rhine Rivers in Koblenz, Germany

 In the German city of Koblenz, the Mosel flows into the Rhine river. The Name “Koblenz” itself has its origin in the latin name “Confluentes”.

10. Confluence of the Drava and Danuve Rivers near Osijek, Croatia

 Located on the right bank of the river Drava 25 km upstream of its confluence with the Danube is the city of Osijek, Croatia.

Ten Spectacular Flightless Birds

There are many species of Birds, but these ones in the List are most Vulnerable to harm because they cannot fly to escape danger.

All of the Birds that Live in this World are Beautiful, but these Birds are even More Unique because of their Inability To Fly.

1. Takahe Bird

This bird is only found in New Zealand and is considered to be an endangered specie of any living flightless birds under rail family. Its been assumed to be extinct before but after a very long search, some takahe birds were found near Lake Te Anau in the Murchison mountain. its overall length is up to 63 cm (24.8 in). It is a stocky bird, with reduced wings, strong legs and a massive bill. At present, there are 225 remaining Takahe birds in its habitat and is being carefully bred to prevent extinction. The only problem is the slow maturity and the low fertility of mature Takahe bird.

 

2. Penguin

A penguin cannot fly but is a very good swimmer because it can flap its arms rapidly. Its kind lives only in the Southern hemisphere, it is because of the cold temperature there. There about 20 species of penguins but is still debated until now. The largest living species is the Emperor Penguin, while the smallest is the Little Blue Penguin. Penguins usually feed on fishes, squids and other small sea preys they could find while swimming underwater.

 

3. Kiwi

This bird is endemic to New Zealand and is used as the national symbol of the country. This flightless bird is considered to be the smallest among the ratites. There are about 5 species of this kind of bird. Kiwis are very shy and nocturnal that is why they are vulnerable to predators, but ever since people built sanctuaries for them, they can already be seen in daylight. They have a very sharp sense of smell, and they are a very unusual kind of bird having nostrils at the end of their bills.

 

4. Cassowary

This is knwon to be the second largest flightless birds next to ostrich. They are fed mainly on fruits and other plants that edible. Its species is also part of the ratite and has only three accepted today: Southern Cassowary, Dwarf Cassowary, Northern Cassowary. They are a very kind of bird but once disturbed would be a very dangerous bird as listed by the Guinness. Although Cassowary birds are already becoming extinct.

 

5. Ostrich

This is known as the lasrgest flightless bird and it is the only specie that lives of its family. I know that most of us already know this fact but its egg is even larger than its brain that is why this kind of bird is known to do crazy things. An ostrich can run as fast as 46 miles per hour and is considered to be the faster bird runner on land. There is nothing to be worried about with this species because they are not even close to being endangered.

 

6. Rhea Birds

This specie belongs to the flightless ratite birds and is native to South America. Among any other flightless birds, it has large wings that are spread when this bird is running. It has two species; the American Rhea and the Darwin’s Rhea. This bird reach up to 6 months until it become mature but does not go into breeding until it reach the age of 2 years old.

 

7. Kakapo

If we are going to examine the fosils of the Kakapo in the entire country of New Zealand, it would seem that it is the most common bird before. The species of this bird are already becoming extinct that is why many conservation plans have been made to prevent this bird to get extinct. According to statistics, the number Kakapo birds significanly increased. They are nocturnal, that’s why the meaning of their name is “night owl”. This bird is also named as parrot owl because of its features.

 

8. Emu

This bird is the largest native bird of Australia is the only extant member of genus Dromaius. This bird reaches up to 2 m (6.5 ft) in height, and is common to mainland Australia. Almost the same as the ostrich, it can run up to the maximum speed of 30 miled per hour. It is not yet becoming extinct nor is it near of becoming endagnered. It is because of its environment that makes it sake frm any harm. There are about three extant specie in Australia.

 

9. Galapagos Cormorant

The name itself would suggest that it is a native in the Galapagos Island. Among any other cormorants, this is the only specie that has lost the ability to fly, it could be because this bird has adopted life on the land and water. This bird has an estimated 1500 embers left on the wild that is why many groups try to have active conservation program to save the lives of the remaining flightless cormorant. It normally feeds on fishes, eels, small octopus, and other small sea creatures. This bird is considered to be the largest among its extant species. Reproduction of its bird starts on the coldest months like July to October when there is an abundant food.

 

10. Dodo

The dodo is an extinct, flightless bird that lived on an island in the Indian Ocean near Mauritius. The species lost the ability to fly presumably because food on Mauritius was abundant and mammalian predators were absent. It is genetically related to pigeons and doves, and its closest relative is the likewise extinct Rodrigues Solitaire. The Dodo was about one metre (3.3 feet) tall and weighed about 20 kilograms (44 lb). Its appearance is evidenced only by paintings and written accounts from the 17th century. Because these vary considerably, and only a few sketches are known to have been drawn from life, its exact appearance remains a mystery.

Strawberry Lake of Senegal

A Boat Floats On What Looks Like A Huge Strawberry Milk-Lake.

The Wooden Vessels Were Photographed From The Air Bobbing On Lake Retba, In Senegal.

From Above The Mass Of Water, Which Spans One Square Mile, Looks Staggeringly Similar To A Giant Milkshake.

Salt Lake Retba in Senegal is highlighted in an unusual color. Microbiologist Bernard Oliver found out the reason for such an unusual color.

The lake contains a microorganism Dunaliella salina, which absorbs the solar colors, highlights the pigment of strawberry-milky color. The bizarre colour is caused by high levels of salt – with some areas containing up to 40% of the condiment.

This organism does not prevent the local population to produce salt.

All salt is extracted by hand and transported to shore in the ordinary wooden boats.

They produce a red pigment that absorbs and uses the energy of sunlight to create more energy, turning the water pink.

“Lakes like Retba and the Dead Sea, which have high salt concentrations, were once thought to be incompatible with life – hence the names. But they are very much alive.”

Salt collectors can often be seen scouring the expanse to remove the valuable mineral – but first have to coat their skin with sheer butter.

This helps protect their skin from exposure to the intense salt levels in the three metre deep lake.

Salt crystals cling to the bodies of miners who work the lake everyday to extract its contents.

And towering piles of collected salt litter the shoreline. Villagers then process it before selling and using the valuable mineral.
