How could a body of water as big as the Mediterranean just…disappear? It would take decades and more than 1,000 research studies to even start to figure out the cause — or causes — of one of the greatest vanishing acts in Earth’s history.
I remembered reading about the theory of the great flood millions of years ago…. 🙂
The Zanclean flood ended the Messinian salinity crisis and reconnected the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, although it is possible that even before the flood there were partial connections to the Atlantic Ocean
Is it possible that in more recent times there would have been an event similar to this that created the Noah and great flood bible events and was passed down in human stories? Or is it more likely to have been a tsunami?
