    The North American Great Lakes — Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior — are so big that they border 8 states and contain 23 quadrillion liters of water. They span forest, grassland, and wetland habitats, supporting a region that’s home to 3,500 species. But how did such a vast and unique geological feature come to be? Cheri Dobbs and Jennifer Gabrys takes us all the way back to the Ice Age to find out.

  • The Main Secret of the Lake Michigan Triangle

    10:02

    It’s not so hard to imagine something mysterious like ships and planes vanishing in the infamous Bermuda Triangle. The ocean is big and full of wonders, after all. But what about, say, a lake? It’s not so absurd when we’re talking about one as huge as Lake Michigan. Yes, The Michigan Triangle is a thing, and it’s just as eerily inexplicable…

    The triangle is situated in the lower half of the lake. It’s 16 times smaller than the Bermuda Triangle, but strange events happen here no less frequently, especially if you keep in mind the difference in size. Some witnesses report seeing a strange glow under the surface, others swear they saw a UFO in the skies over the lake, and so many just feel uneasy being there. So, you ready to dive in?

    TIMESTAMPS:
    Where the triangle is situated 0:33
    The very first vanishing 1:28
    Schooner that never returned 3:36
    Ship without a crew 4:39
    Mystery of Captain Donner’s vanishing 5:27
    No plane, no wreckage 6:27

    #bermudatriangle #mystery #brightside

    SUMMARY:
    - The North American Great Lakes are all massive, and Lake Michigan itself is the 4th largest freshwater lake in the world.
    - The triangle is situated in the lower half of the lake, with a corner at Manitowoc, Wisconsin and the other two at Ludington and Benton Harbor, Michigan.
    - The first case goes way back to the 17th century, when the Great Lakes started to become a means of moving goods for trading.
    - In August of 1679, a French ship called Le Griffon was sailing across the unchartered waters of the Great Lakes. But when she made it to Lake Michigan, Le Griffon… just vanished.
    - The cause of Le Griffon’s disappearance never was fully established. Some evidence points at a sudden storm, while others believe it was rival traders that attacked and destroyed the vessel.
    - The weirdest thing is that Le Griffon’s wreckage never was found.
    - The next noticeable vanishing happened in 1891 to the Thomas Hume schooner.
    - The schooner never did make it back to its home port. The search for the ship was initiated almost immediately, but with no results for almost 120 years.
    - There would also be the Rosa Belle. Also a lumber schooner, she set off on her final voyage from High Island to Benton Harbor in 1921.
    - She was found later drifting aimlessly on the waters of Lake Michigan after being capsized by some great force.
    - To add to the mystery, the ship’s crew was nowhere to be found and never heard from again…
    - Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 2501 had taken off from New York and was headed for Seattle on June 23.
    - It would appear that Flight 2501 had encountered a storm cloud, the plane malfunctioned, and then fell into Lake Michigan. But even with all efforts to try and find the wreckage, there was no success.
    - Reportedly, two police officers saw a strange red light hovering above the lake on exactly the same day the plane disappeared.
    - The anomaly of The Lake Michigan Triangle, if it exists and whatever it really is, remains a giant flaming question mark on the map of the United States.

  • Wild Germany: The Mecklenburg Lake Plateau | Free Documentary Nature

    Wild Germany: The Mecklenburg Lake Plateau | Free Nature Documentary

    At 117 square kilometres(45 sq mi), the Müritz is the second largest lake in Germany (after Lake Constance) and the largest lake located entirely within German territory. But it is far from being the only one in the north east of the country.

    The Mecklenburg Lake District, between Waren and Feldberg, contains around 2000 lakes alone. Thanks to the Müritz National Park the species diversity is particularly high in the region: half of the German crane population breeds in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern; the osprey is typical of the Müritz area, the lively Eurasian otter hunts here and the endangered red milan circles the skies above.

    Fred Bollmann, the former ranger and voluntary nature conservationist is actively involved in the preservation of ‘his’ wildlife world. Filming for this production took two years. The outcome is a unique portrait of this stunning region.

  • 1000 Foot Ships of the Great Lakes - All 13 Vessels!

    35:04

    Between 2015 and 2017, I managed to capture footage of all 13 thousand-foot lake carriers in the Duluth, Minnesota area. So it seemed like a good idea to bring them all together for one video. Some of this footage has already been uploaded to my channel as individual videos, some hasn't. But I re-edited the footage and decided to go with natural sound instead of music background this time (even if the wind noise in the microphone is slightly annoying at times). Unfortunately, three of the ships didn't offer up Captain's salutes (American Integrity, Edwin H. Gott, and Burns Harbor).

    These 1000-foot ships generally carry either iron ore or coal from the western end of Lake Superior (including the ports at Duluth, Superior, Two Harbors, Silver Bay) to unload at ports in Indiana, Michigan, or Ohio.

    Here are the ships covered in the video. All were recorded in Duluth, Minnesota, except where noted:

    0:21 Stewart J. Cort (Superior, Wisconsin)
    3:04 Presque Isle
    5:28 James R. Barker
    8:00 Mesabi Miner
    10:40 Walter J. McCarthy
    12:46 American Integrity
    14:46 American Spirit
    16:50 Edwin H. Gott (Two Harbors, Minnesota)
    19:52 Indiana Harbor
    22:05 Burns Harbor (Superior, Wisconsin)
    24:45 Edgar B. Speer
    28:39 American Century
    32:15 Paul R. Tregurtha

    Which ship is your favorite? Which one has the best-sounding horn? Let us know in the comments section.

    If you enjoy this video, be sure to check out this newer video I created featuring 40 different freighters of the Great Lakes, including both the modern super carriers and the classic lakers:

  • Wildlife in Germanys lakes

    50:07

    At 117 square kilometres, the Müritz is the largest lake on German territory, but it’s far from the only one in the north east of the country.

    Even the Mecklenburg Lake District, between Waren and Feldberg, contains around 2000 lakes alone. Thanks to the Müritz National Park the species diversity is particularly high in the region: half of the German crane population breeds in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern; the osprey is typical of the Müritz area; the lively Eurasian otter hunts here; and the endangered red milan circles the skies above.

    29:55

    Alpine River: The Cradle if Life | Nature Documentary

    What would happen to the mountains without water? They would turn into deserts, devoid of life and vegetation. But there are very few mountains without water on our planet. They take care of this themselves, creating their life’s element and taking water directly from the sky by entrapping the clouds around them.

    This water then collects on the flanks of the mountains, where it turns from rivulets into rivers, that flow out into the oceans. Mountains and water are symbiotic, a cycle that keeps life on earth going. Mountain streams slowly move along meadows before, only moments later, turning into the spray of waterfalls or small mystic lakes. What kind of life can be found in and around this mysterious cosmos?

    We will investigate the world of the rare Danube salmon and be there to see the Danube bleak spawn. We will follow giant wels catfish into their hideouts, see great crested grebes on their underwater hunting. We go diving under the ice of frozen mountain streams and lakes, discovering life where none was thought possible.

  • Damming Decisions - Great Lakes Now - 1018 - Segment 2

    8:00

    Dams are being removed on rivers across the continent. As these rivers return to their natural states, one challenge is keeping invasive fish out while allowing native species to move freely. On the Boardman River in northwest Michigan, a state-of-the-art research facility will use a series of technologies to determine which fish go further upstream. The project can be a model for programs around the world.

    Dam removal in the Pacific Northwest is covered in the PBS documentary series “The Age of Nature, which will air on PBS stations at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesdays, Oct. 14, 21 and 28, 2020. More information here:

  • Lake Superior

    1:12:34

    The Ojibwe name for the lake is gichi-gami (pronounced as gitchi-gami and kitchi-gami in other dialects),[7] meaning great sea. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the name as Gitche Gumee in The Song of Hiawatha, as did Gordon Lightfoot in his song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. According to other sources, the actual Ojibwe name is Ojibwe Gichigami (Ojibwe's Great Sea) or Anishinaabe Gichigami (Anishinaabe's Great Sea).[8] The 1878 dictionary by Father Frederic Baraga, the first one written for the Ojibway language, gives the Ojibwe name as Otchipwe-kitchi-gami (reflecting Ojibwe Gichigami).[7]

    The first French explorers approaching the great inland sea by way of the Ottawa River and Lake Huron during the 17th century referred to their discovery as le lac supérieur. Properly translated, the expression means Upper Lake, that is, the lake above Lake Huron. The lake was also called Lac Tracy (named for Alexandre de Prouville de Tracy) by 17th century Jesuit missionaries.[9] The British, upon taking control of the region from the French in the 1760s following the French and Indian War, anglicized the lake's name to Superior, on account of its being superior in magnitude to any of the lakes on that vast continent.[10]

  • Lake Huron Sinkholes - Great Lakes Now - 1010 - Segment 2

    7:33

    In 2001, mysterious sinkholes were discovered in northern Lake Huron. They’ve attracted researchers from around the world. But how much water comes through the sinkholes? What role do they play in determining how lake levels rise and fall? That’s what Steve Ruberg's, observing systems researcher with NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory research team is trying to find out.

  • The Dirty Secret at the Bottom of the Great Lakes: Oil & Water

    17:17

    The world's largest crude oil transporter has a secret buried deep in the Great Lakes—two aging oil pipelines that transport 23 million gallons of crude oil through the largest body of fresh water on earth.

    Enbridge, the company that operates the pipelines, insists that the two 20-inch pipelines stretching across the Straits of Mackinac could last indefinitely. But one look at the company’s environmental record tells another story: Enbridge had more than 800 spills in North America between 1999 and 2010, dumping nearly 6.8 million gallons of oil. The largest spill released one million gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo River, only a few hours drive away from the Mackinac Straits. Activists and advocates have independently verified that parts of the pipeline—built in 1953—are sitting unsupported on the bottom of the lake and in major need of repair.

    Motherboard travels to Michigan—oil spill central—to investigate the threats of crude oil being transported through one of the largest freshwater ecosystems in the world by a company with one of the most egregious environmental records.

  • Carp Advance - Great Lakes Now - 1018 - Segment 3

    8:10

    Since their introduction years ago, invasive Asian carp have infested rivers and lakes around the U.S. But they’ve been kept out of the Great Lakes — so far. Some steps have been taken to protect the lakes system, but many believe that more effective policies — and more substantial barriers — are needed to keep the fish from spreading and to reduce the numbers where they’re already established.

    This segment was produced in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation.
