Study. Flood Water , Where is he? By Adrian Pablos & Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

When coupled with my friend Pastor Adrian Pablos started writing the book " From Eden to the Nations" (which is about the Bible - Genesis prehistoric period I to XI ) had a thousand questions for every answer.
One of those questions was: Flood Water , where is it ? . This post is part of the research to find an answer .

8 And God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark : and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided . 2 and the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained . Genesis 8 RVR 60
         This verse marks the beginning of the end of the destructive process of the Flood. God ... It was agreed in the Hebrew , the verb used is Zakar [1 ] . It is the same verb " to remember " in 1 Sam . 1.19 , when God remembered Hannah conceived and made . The connotation of the word of God is to remember to act accordingly , for the recordadada person . God's action in favor of the Flood survivors was:

         I. Send a wind which lowered the water.
     II.Y the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained . Terminates the action started in Gen. 7.11.

         The waters began to decrease gradually ( Gen.8.3 - 5) verbs translated as decrease in Hebrew are , respectively :

                       I. Strong # 7725 : shub , again .
                     II . Strong # 2637 : kjasér , decrease, decrease.

         Then the water decreased ( decreased ) because returning to their places of origin [ 2] . Most of the water in the oceans would have been after the orogenic rearrangement . Another important part returned to the underground tanks ( underground water reserves and thermal sources) , many of the Flood legends allude to water the earth " swallowed " . Another part is the Polar Ice and Glaciers .

B. The Intrusive Suite [3 ] rearrangement

The Word in Psalm 104.7 - 8 [ 4] tells us :
 ".... Over mountains water ( the Flood ) were stopped. For Your exhortation fled ( water ) at the sound of Your thunder ( water ) escaped .
( Waters ) ascended the mountains , down into the valleys, to the place that you have assigned . You set a limit [ 5] ( water ) can not cross, not to return to cover the earth. "
In all the prayers that make up this portion of Scripture , the implied subject is " The Waters must the flood " (which we marked by putting it in parentheses) , and perfectly describes the flood , a flood that covered the mountains of that time . The Peshitta translates this passage of Scripture as follows :
Psalm 104:8 : " They climbed the mountains and down the valleys " But here the subject of the sentence that " Rise " and " Bajan " are the mountains and valleys ( depressions ) and this process is allowed to "accommodate " the most of the water of the Flood.
In the same way that we have on earth firm mountains and valleys and depressions in the seabed or ocean background too : The relief of the ocean floor [6 ] presents plains are interrupted by mountain ranges, ocean trenches and fireplaces.

C. The Abyssal Plains

The abyssal plains are plains or vast plains extending between oceanic ridges , half depths of about 4,000 m . Likewise is the valleys between mountains on the mainland.
They are planted in hills or isolated volcanoes, which may emerge in the form of islands.
D. Ocean ridges

Mid-ocean ridges are mountain ranges generally located at the edges where the tectonic plates meet. In the Atlantic and Indian oceans are located in the central area , but in the Pacific are further east ( They are the " Pacific Fire Lace "). The chains are very extensive forming a wide arc of width close to 1,000 km, with central valleys and several parallel chains . Reach heights of 3,000 m above the adjacent seafloor.
To correspond to the contact lines of tectonic plates , form a system with some degree of union of more than 70,000 km. length . The average ocean ridges are formed by lava after an underwater eruption cools and becomes rock. This process is similar to creating volcanoes on earth cooled lava.

E. Oceanic graves

Trenches are the deepest parts of the oceans, at depths exceeding 10,000 m . Some of the most profound is the Mariana Trench ( 11,034 m), the Kuril - Kamchatka ( 10,542 m) and Mindanao (1,524 m). The pits are huge ( get to have up to 100 km wide) and very long , many of which run parallel to the island arc , and its average depth is 8,000 m . The formation of some volcanoes , mountains , islands and oceanic trenches are connected with the process of subduction , continental drift and orogeny .
The Marianas Trench
We consider it necessary to give a brief explanation on this subject, in order to show God's provision to prepare " a place " where ordered water removed the Flood. The appendix is attached a table with all the trenches . The Mariana Trench is the best known and the deepest location of the earth's crust.
This marine tank has its origin in a subduction process [7 ] . It is located in the bottom of the Pacific Northwest , south east of the Mariana Islands . The grave was first visited in 1872 , has a length of 2550 km and an average width of 70 kilometers. The pressure in the huge background , almost " overwhelming " . In the pit several previously unknown species were found. A 11 km deep , other biodiversity as tiny unicellular living , a form of plankton for now unknown, as published in the journal Science found. The Mariana Trench is one of the least known places on Earth , and has never been trodden by human .

F. Volcanic Islands & Atolls

The contact zones between Plate Tectonics ( subduction zones ) are associated with intense seismic activity caused by tension , compression and friction between the two tectonic plates . Major earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan or Indonesia are caused by this phenomenon.
Are areas of high volcanic activity which they originate island arcs as :
The Aleutian in Japan
in Philippines
Sunda Islands or the West Indies . Alongside these islands there are deep trenches ( Mariana Trench , Japan Trench , Puerto Rico Trench , etc. . ) .
Depending on which plate is superposed arches Islands originate or mountain range , as is the case of the Nazca plate that subdicir ( " Get under ") under the South American plate caused the Andes. As in the previous case, there is associated an oceanic trench ( Peru -Chile Trench ) . This information, which may seem captious to a student of the Bible , it is necessary to understand that the word refers to when he says in Psalm 104.8
 " They climbed the mountains and down the valleys " Bible Peshitta .
The work of God in our world is great and you need to have a broad view , these elementary knowledge of geography help this purpose. In all creation is dynamic , our Earth also: Tectonic plates move and every now and then " rearranged " as happens in these days when I'm writing these lines, Haiti was rocked by an earthquake [8 ] .

G. Aquifers: underground deposits [9 ] of water .

Underground Deposits are called aquifers. Contain almost 96 % of the fresh water on the planet and most of them are transboundary .
To date 273 have been localized aquifers in the world , broken down as follows:
68 in the Americas
38 in Africa
65 in Eastern Europe
90 in Western Europe
12 in Asia .

The volume of water contained in aquifers is a hundred times greater than the Earth's water surface and already supply much of the freshwater demand of the world population . Since the mid-twentieth century, this demand increase has led to increasingly rely on water resources of underground . Globally, 65% of these resources are used for irrigation, 25 % to the supply of drinking water and 10 % in industry . Aquifers provide more than 70 % of water used in the European Union and are often the only source of water in many arid and semi-arid regions of the world (100 % in Saudi Arabia and Malta, 95 % in Tunisia and 75 % in Morocco) .

In many other countries , irrigation systems are flocking to the water resources of bedrock (90 % in the Libyan Arab - Libya [10 ] , 89 % in India , 84% in Africa and 80% in Spain ) .

Although aquifer on all continents , but in some parts of the world their are renewable . The North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula , for example, are not charged since its formation, when the weather in the area was wetter .

In some regions regularly renewable aquifers fed by atmospheric precipitation also at risk because of over-exploitation or pollution . The inhabitants of small islands and coastal areas of the Mediterranean often exploit groundwater to exceed their capacity for renewal rate.
Instead, Africa 's aquifers , which are among the biggest in the world, remain untapped . Its potential water supply is very considerable , provided that their resources are guided by a criterion of sustainable development management . Since many of them extend across several States, its exploitation requires the establishment of joint management devices to avoid, for example, that its waters are contaminated or improperly operated by one of the neighboring countries.

As an example, we give a story about the Guarani Aquifer
It is a transboundary underground water reservoir (see Figure 17.3 ) , which underlies the territory occupying approximately 1,200,000 km ² in southeastern South America, between 12 ° and 35 ° south latitude and 47 ° and 65 ° west longitude. Made up of sandstones are below ground level , 50 to 800 m thick, and having water in their pores and cracks , scientists estimate that was established between 245 and 144 million years ago . The aquifer is geographically located below four countries ( that match the 4 original members of MERCOSUR) :

In Brazil 840,000 km ² is
In Argentina 225,500 km ² is
In Paraguay 71,700 km ²
58,500 km ² in Uruguay

In Argentina there are 5 thermal perforations exploited freshwater and saltwater , located in the east of the province of Entre Ríos ( Spa Villa Elisa , Spa Federation , Termas de San José , among others) , while to his west there is only one thermal salt water , thereby polluting the salty effluent problem .
History: The Guarani aquifer system is confined to old , corresponding to the Triassic , Jurassic and Cretaceous geological periods . At that time , they were still united Africa and South America , deposits begin to develop in fluvial and lacustrine environments , conociéndoselos as " Tacuarembó Training " or Pirambóia .

H. GLACIER [11 ]

Glacier : A mass of ice accumulated in the high areas of the mountain ranges above the limit of perpetual snow that slides very slowly , like a river of ice. Dictionary of the Spanish Language © 2005 Espasa- Calpe.
Most glaciers in recent decades reduced both mass and surface, with the exception of the period 1940-1980 during which approximately , due to a slight global cooling, many glaciers recovered some volume or at least they kept the left. Since 1980 the temperature has continued to increase to the present day , which has accelerated its decline. For example , glaciers in the Alps have lost two thirds of its surface in the past 150 years.

Mid-latitude glaciers

This large group consists of those glaciers that are located between the Tropics and the Polar Areas . Mainly containing mountain glaciers among which :
· The Himalayan
· The Alps
· The Rocky Mountains
· The Andes
· The New Zealand.
Glaciers in these regions typically large and tend to be more the closer you are to one of the polar circles. This group has been studied in detail over the last 150 years, almost all the glaciers have a negative mass balance , ie , are receding .

tropical glaciers

Tropical glaciers are located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, in a large swath around Ecuador . These glaciers are unusual for several reasons. First, this region is one of the hottest on the planet. Second, in these latitudes stations practically nonexistent and the temperature is warm year-round , causing virtually no snow and therefore difficult for ice to accumulate. Third, in the tropics there are few mountains that are high enough to have low temperatures to allow a glacier established. All tropical glaciers are relatively small and are at the highest levels of isolated mountains . For this reason they are particularly sensitive to climate change .
Are: Kilimanjaro , Mount Kenya, Andes , Carstensz Pyramid , Glaciers of New Zealand.

c . polar glaciers

Despite its importance to civilization , tropical and mid-latitude glaciers represent only 1 % of all the ice that exists on Earth. The remaining 99 % is in Antarctica and Greenland.

 d . Antarctica

The collapse of the Larsen Ice Barrier : The great ice sheets covering the arid continent of Antarctica contain most of the world's freshwater . Despite the intense cold that prevails in this part of the world several areas frosts are showing clear signs of deterioration.
