What do geologists do for decades? Surely this has been investigated before?

So for decades professional guys in jeeps have been out there looking at rocks and shaking there heads until one day last week one guy shouts out "Ooooohhh hang on! Let's look UNDER the rocks!!!"
Up until fairly recently the rocks were under water!

It wasn't until almost the whole Aral Sea was drained in one of the world's biggest environmental disasters that the seabed became easily accessible. And as BP will tell you, it's not easy to work under water.

What it will probably do is completely screw the limited restoration work going on down there.
