Extreme Life and Environments
Mono Lake, extreme biology in bleaching conditions (pH 10). The calcium and carbonate combine, precipitating out as limestone. Mono Basin is also filled with volcanoes. Black Point erupted under the Ice Age Mono Lake about 13,000 years ago, and is now totally exposed on the north shore. To the south lie the Mono Craters, the youngest mountain chain in North America. Mono's islands are also volcanic in nature. Photo Credit: Nancy Noever
