Blood Falls is an outflow of saltwater, flowing from the tongue of the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica. The reddish deposit was found in 1911 by the Australian geologist Griffith Taylor who first attributed the red color to red algae, but later it was proven to be due an iron-rich underground saltwater lake that was trapped by the encroaching glacier at least 1.5 million years ago.
