The landlocked Dead Sea of the Middle East is Earth's lowest spot on land. The current Dead Sea shoreline lies about 1,300 feet below sea level but it's dropping at a rate of about 4 feet per year. Yael Kiro is Geochemist at Columbia University and is using layers of salt from the seabed to study the significance of this change.
