red sediment in rain gauge
« on: March 18, 2017, 11:34:28 AM »
After last rain i noticed red sediment in rain gauge.  Anyone got any idea what it could be? It is not flower pollen or sahara sand.

Makes more sense than my idea....  :roll:  although, there is a lot of ash as rubbish from Etna, depends where Marko lives

Slovenia. I saw a NASA image but it showed Etna's dust going in the wrong direction to reach Marko.

I noticed  this sediment before Etna eruptions and also there are no building works in the neighborhood. I am suspecting cement kiln, located 10 km away. They are burning waste and car tires...

That same algae  turn snow here red. See it a lot  on the mountains  flying. Big big patches of red. Ice worms  also feed on it.
