There is much we have imagined about what can be on the bottom of an ocean. From treasures, wrecks, marine monsters to the famous lost city of Atlantis. The bottom of the ocean awakens our imagination and encourages the curiosity of scientists. There you can find the most amazing thing. Even, up to fresh water.

Scientists at Columbia University in New York have just found a reservoir of nearly 3,000 cubic kilometers of freshwater in porous sediments under the saltwater of the sea on the northeast coast of the United States, which runs from Massachusetts to New Jersey. About 350 km from the Atlantic coast. 

Yes, fresh water. It is not a fabulation. Experts say it is a gigantic natural reserve of fresh water on the very bottom of the ocean, which could be one of the first beginnings of other similar finds in traditionally arid places like California, Australia, the Middle East or Africa.

Areas where it could be a great solution to mitigate the problems of drought or lack of fresh water for consumption that have dragged on for centuries.
