rating: +3+x

Item #: SCP-1311-RU

Object Class: Euclid None Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The underwater boundary of SCP-1311 is enclosed by a protective net. The surface zone is patrolled by Foundation S-Class vessels. Civilians attempting to enter the object area must be detained, interrogated, treated with amnestics, and then released. Any creatures affected by SCP-1311 must be destroyed immediately.

The state of the biosphere in the exposed coastal zone is checked monthly by remotely controlled drone. Due to the unacceptable radiation levels for equipment operation (see Incident 1311-SK), research of the object’s deeper areas is suspended indefinitely. Experiments with SCP-1311 can be conducted with written permission of the object’s curator and two members of the O5 Council.

Description: SCP-1311 is an anomalous region with a center located two kilometers from the shore of [REDACTED]. It has a dome-shaped form, with its border lying at 20 m (at low tide - 5 m) from the coastline and presumably reaching 8-10 km towards the sea. The exact depth of the anomaly has not been established, however, it is reliably known that SCP-1311 reaches the bottom of the adjacent fault at ████ m below the ocean's surface. Top of the dome rises above the water by 2m and by 4m at low tide. The object has no visible material component and its boundaries are determined only by its anomalous effect on living organisms.

The main anomalous property of SCP-1311 is its effect on living terrestrial organisms. Any such creature, if it enters influence zone of the object, gains the ability to stay and breathe under water for indefinite time without any harm; the body simultaneously stops receiving oxygen from atmospheric air during this transition. A long stay outside the aquatic environment leads to rapid drying and damage to external tissues. These changes are irreversible.
