Located on an Island off the coast of southern Queensland, Australia;



Imagine a lake that's never been affected by climate change or any other man-made influences. Australian scientists say they have found just that—a remote lake whose crystal-clear waters seem to be in the same chemical state as they were about 7,500 years ago.

"It's like God's bathtub," Dr. Cameron Barr told the Australian Associated Press of the body of water now named Blue Lake. "It is beautiful. It is absolutely beautiful."

Barr and his team of researchers from the University of Adelaide say the lake—one of the largest on North Stradbroke Island off the south Queensland coast, according to the AAP—is so pure that you can see more than 30 feet below the surface to its bottom.

I agree with you. The wind does carry over plenty of pollution around the world.

I'm curious as to how they could determine how long the water has been "untouched" for.

The only way I see is that the whole lake is a natural spring? and could it filter radiation as well?

Or maybe weather patterns do not carry radiation or pollution there.

Also, can someone teach the scientists to use a polarizing filter to get a picture of the clear lake, and not the reflection?
