Do You Know Why A Lake In Australia Is Pink

Jan 04, 2017 By Obiaks 3.9K

Pink Lake is a salt lake in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia. The lake is not always pink but the distinctive colour of the water changes as a result of green alga, and/or high concentration of brine prawn. Once the lake water reaches a salinity level greater than that of sea water, the temperature is high enough and adequate light conditions are provided, the alga begins to accumulate the red pigment beta carotene.
