10 Abandoned Storm Factory of the Crimea

Abandoned Storm Factory of the Crimea

Posted on February 26, 2016 by team

This object built in the Soviet time in the Crimea resembles a huge glass, but water is not poured inside but in between the glass walls. On top are big storm creating fans. On the bottom of that glass is a tower.

It's like a small water collider - thought by many as strange and unnecessary, wrapped in mysteries, real and fake stories, some even believed in dolphins swimming between those glass walls.

But what is this object really for? Why was it built? Let's check this out.

Katsiveli village in the Crimea. This is that very tower on the bottom of the "glass".

"Sea test range".

Back in the 1950s here was an experimental facility of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute. This place has three scientific objects - instrument rock, oceanographic platform and storm pool. There is an interesting heliostation in this place and a radio telescope - one of the biggest in Europe. The storm pool was built in 1953.

    Is there any logical reason as to why all these images couldn’t be posted on 2 or 3 pages? Having to click through two images at a time per page is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry, you’ll be losing viewers if this continues.

    We really need a “report” function for comments, if for no other reason to ban the cheapskate shitposters like ausGeoff up there. Ugh.
