Canada's Saraswati: Massive river flowed into oblivion in just 4 days! 20.4.2017 DNA: Top News
It takes decades, or centuries even, for rivers to merely change their course. But one river in Canada vanished into thin air — quite literally — in only four days last year, with climate experts blaming a rapidly melting glacier in the river's headwaters for the abrupt disappearance. The Slims river was immense in scale and stretched to 150 m at its widest points. For hundreds of years, it carried melt water northwards from the Kaskawulsh glacier in the country's Yukon territory into the Kluane river, and then into the Yukon river towards the Bering Sea. But in what is believed to be the world's first-ever case of 'river piracy' — which denotes the flow of one river being suddenly diverted into another — the drainage gradient of the Slims river was tipped in favour of a second river, redirecting the melt water towards the Gulf of Alaska, and causing the Slims river to do its disappearing act. This, scientists say, is a worrying sign of how climate change could be changing the geography of the ...
