10 Second Trivia. What body of water is located along the border between Israel and Jordan? The Dead Sea, The Sea of Galilee, The Gulf of Aqaba, of the Red Sea. It's the salty Dead Sea that's between Israel and Jordon and it has the lowest elevation on Earth's surface.
 
10秒快速问答。什么水域位于以色列和约旦的边界上?死海,加利利海,亚喀巴湾还是红海?答案是位于以色列和约旦之间的死海海,它是地球表面海拔最低的地方。
 
And though researchers say they found a place that's considerably lower than that setting a new record for the deepest point on land, you can't really visit it and you can't really even see it. The Deadman Glacier is located in Eastern Antarctica. Glaciologists at the University of California were mapping it out using new technology. They were combining radar measurements, satellite information, and snow accumulation data and they say this allowed them to locate a valley that's hidden underneath the ice sheet.
 
尽管研究人员表示,他们发现了一个比陆地最深点纪录低得多的地方,但你不能真正去那里,甚至不能真正看到它。死亡冰川位于南极洲东部。加利福尼亚大学的冰川学家正在用新技术绘制出地图。他们综合了雷达测量数据、卫星信息和积雪数据,他们说这使他们能够找到一个隐藏在冰盖下的山谷。
 
The trough is reportedly about 62 miles long and 12 and a half miles wide but here's the kicker. It's deep. Researchers say it plunges two miles below sea level which it would make it more than a mile deeper than the bottom of the Dead Sea.
 
据报道,这个水槽大约有62英里长,12英里半宽,但问题在于。它非常深。研究人员表示,它会下降到海平面以下两英里,这将使它比死海底部深一英里多。
 
Of course the ocean's deepest trenches are much lower than this but what we're talking about is the lowest point on land and the Antarctic trough apparently has no ocean water. Scientists say it's filled with ice that flows toward the Antarctic coast. They're hopeful that their research will help scientists study the continent for decades to come.
 
当然,海洋最深的海沟要比这低得多,但我们现在谈论的是陆地上最低点,南极的海沟显然没有海水。科学家们说,它充满了流向南极海岸的冰。他们希望研究将有助于科学家在未来几十年研究非洲大陆。
