Droughts are unearthing unexpected finds ranging from World War II bombs to Sin City skeletons
Lower water levels due to drought are unearthing old sites, artifacts, and human remains.
Droughts are becoming more frequent and severe in many parts of the US and the world, according to climate reports.
In Nevada's Lake Mead, four sets of humans remains have been found since May.
This year, intense droughts, made worse by climate change, have depleted water levels in rivers, lakes, and streams around the world, revealing remnants from the past. As the world warms, experts say more ancient artifacts and long-submerged human remains could come to the surface.
Nevada's Lake Mead is a prime example. Water levels have plunged 150 feet since 2000, according to the Southern Nevada Power Authority. Levels were at 1,041.63 feet above sea level Friday morning, their lowest since 1937, following the construction of the nearby Hoover Dam. Shrinking Lake Mead is part of a larger phenomenon, in which climate change is making droughts more frequent, severe, and pervasive in many parts of the United States and the world, according to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, published in April.
From World War II-era ships and bombs to skeletons recovered near Sin City, unexpected discoveries continue to be unearthed by climate change-fueled droughts.
Lake Mead's sunken secrets
Water levels in Nevada's Lake Mead have hit record lows amid a severe drought, unveiling human remains that were once submerged. In May, two sets of human skeletal remains were found in the span of a week. In July and August, two more sets of remains were found, bringing the tally to four since May.
More bodies could turn up, given that water levels have receded to historic lows amid a climate change-fueled drought, according to Jennifer Byrnes, a forensic anthropologist who consults with the Clark County coroner's office.
"I would expect human remains of missing persons will probably be revealed over time, as the water level continues to recede," Byrnes previously told Insider.
