The lake, which lies four kilometres below the icy surface of Antarctica, is unique in that it’s been completely isolated from the other 150subglacial lakes on the continent for such a long time. It’s also oligotropic, meaning that it’s supersaturated with oxygen — levels of the element are 50 times higher than those found in most typical freshwater lakes
Hm… 50 times more oxygen? Ok, well maybe there is another explanation for it but the first thing I think of is… if it hasn’t been exposed to the atmosphere for thousands of years (not millions), and it has a nice heavy ice cap on it to keep it in the state in which it was left, maybe this is a window back to the pre-flood era, or maybe JUST after the flood when the atmosphere might have been more pressurized.
Interesting things to think on anyways.
