Near Ein Gedi, salt builds up along the shores of the Dead Sea.
Cobble encrusted with halite evaporated from the Dead Sea near Ein Gedi.
Pebbles cemented with halite on the western shore of the Dead Sea near Ein Gedi.
In prehistoric times great amounts of sediment collected on the floor of Lake Gomorrah. The sediment was heavier than the salt deposits and squeezed the salt deposits upwards into what are now the Lisan Peninsula and Mount Sodom (on the southwest side of the lake). Geologists explain the effect in terms of a bucket of mud into which a large flat stone is placed, forcing the mud to creep up the sides of the pail. .When the floor of the Dead Sea dropped further due to tectonic forces, the salt mounts of Lisan and Mount Sodom stayed in place as high cliffs.^ Jericho Ancient city on the plain north of the Dead Sea and due north of Qumran.

Winter average temperatures range between 20 and 23 °C (68 and 73 °F). The region has weakened ultraviolet radiation, particularly the UVB (erythrogenic rays), and an atmosphere characterized by a high oxygen content due to the high barometric pressure.[7] The sea affects temperatures nearby because of the moderating effect a large body of water has on climate. During the winter, sea temperatures tend to be higher than land temperatures, and vice versa during the summer months. This is the result of the water's mass and specific heat capacity.

An astonishing prediction was revealed in the Noble Quran around the year 620 AD, about 7 years after the severe defeat of the Christean Byzantine armies (led by Heraclius) by the idolatrous Persians. The first verses of Surat-Ar-Rum predicted that the severely defeated Romans will be sooner victorious over the idolatrous Persians. At the Battle of Antioch in 613-614 AD, the Persian could take control over important Byzantine territories expanding into Syria, Jerusalem, Armenia and Egypt. The Byzantium was so very unlikely to get over this Persian expansion and was about to collapse totally. In 622, Heraclius gained a number of victories over the Persians and conquered Armenia. In 627, the two empires fought a decisive battle at Nineveh, some 50 km east of the Tigris river, near Baghdad. .The verses also miraculously indicate another important fact that the scene of Byzantium defeat was at the lowest point on land which has been recently confirmed to be the basin of the Dead Sea.^ Why are the Dead Sea Scrolls so important?

The verses read:
1. Alif, Lam, Mim. 2. The Romans have been defeated. 3. In the lowest land, but after their defeat they will be victorious. 4. Within few (three to nine) years. The affair is Allah's from beginning to end. On that day, the believers will rejoice." (Qur'an, 30:1-4)
The Arabic words (bida' senin) literally mean (few years) but numerically indicate the range of numbers from three to nine, that's to say, the Romans shall get victorious over the Persians within three to nine years of their previous defeat in 613-614 AD. And it was, the first remarkable victory of Heraclius over the Persians after his defeat was in the Battle of Issus in 622 AD.

The southern end is fed by a canal maintained by the Dead Sea Works, a company that converts the sea's raw materials. From a depression of 395 m (1,296 ft) below sea level in 1970[22] it fell 22 m (72 ft) to 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level in 2006, reaching a drop rate of 1 m (3 ft) per year. As the water level decreases, the characteristics of the Sea and surrounding region may substantially change.

Reading a newspaper while floating in the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a lake lying between the countries of Israel and Jordan. At 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level, it is the lowest point on the surface of the Earth.[1] It is almost nine times as salty as the ocean [1]

The Dead Sea is very salty, which makes it impossible for most life to exist in it. This is the reason for its name. However, it is not completely dead, as some types of bacteria are able to live in the water.

Because the water is so salty, it weighs more than fresh water, and a person is able to easily float in the Dead Sea without any effort. Tourists come from around the world to float in the water.
