Under the second Amazon river there, although the water there

Scientists from the National Observatory of Brazil hastened to clarify information about allegedly found them underground river that flows beneath the Amazon. It turned out that this is just an underground tank with salt water, which may not even enters the Atlantic Ocean.

Studies in question began back in the 80's of last century, when in the hands of scientists got the information on the composition of the soil beneath the Amazon. These researchers gave company Petrobras, which drilled a number of wells in search of minerals.

Group Walia Hamza further found that at a depth of several kilometers under the Amazon has more water. "River" is not exactly put scientists, has a length of 6 km. It was formed thanks to the waters of the Amazon, which seeps through the soil and accumulate over the watertight horizons. With regard to the chemical composition, according to Petrobras' geologist Dr. Figueiredo, in underground reservoirs is no place for fresh water, so it is likely all there is salty.

Now scientists have to figure out the water flow in underground reservoirs, as well as to find out whether it has access to the Atlantic Ocean.
