I hope that professor who I’ve met once/has no obligation to me as a student, um, emails me back soon and has helpful things to tell me.
Koyashskoe lake in Kerch, (Crimea). Located in the Opukske Reserve, Lake Koyashske is considered to be the saltiest in Crimea – a liter of its water contains 350 grams of salt. The lake’s main highlight is its changing-colour properties that depend on the season(when it’s hot, the water is pink-coloured). The unusual color of the lake is due to the microscopic algae living in the water. Another reason for the lake’s red color is the high population of brine shrimps that live there.

Eugène-Louis Doyen was a revolutionary (if flamboyant and controversy-loving) Parisian surgeon who lived between 1859 and 1919.
Long before the Visible Human Project created its 1,871 “slices” of Joseph Paul Jernigan at 1 mm intervals, and created over 65 gigs of anatomical data (and later created 40 gigs of data with a female cadaver), Doyen presented a new way of visualizing the cadaver: longitudinal and horizontal sections, showing exactly how the human anatomy goes together in each area, without the context of seeing the full organs or bones.
Though the full usefulness of these unorthodox sections wasn’t truly appreciated until the advent of tomography in the early 1970s, they were noted to be helpful to early radiologists, and especially to the burgeoning fields of criminal forensics and forensic archaeology.
