Scientists Just Discovered Fresh Water Under the Ocean, and It is Huge

Scientists found a freshwater aquifer under the ocean. And get this — there’s enough water to fill 1.1 billion Olympic-sized swimming pools. Oceanographic teams have known for a while that there are pockets of fresh water below the seafloor. They would run into them occasionally when drilling offshore for oil but when geologists and geophysicists explored how big these pockets actually were, they were floored.
