Kara-Bogaz-Gol - water level variation over time

Year: 2007
From collection: Vital Caspian Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Comparing a series of satellite images from different periods a Californian hydrologist discovered in 1983 that a huge white spot had taken the place of the vast Kara-Bogaz- Gol (literally “dark gullet” in Turkmen) in the south-east corner of the Caspian. Kara-Bogaz-Gol is a lowland area that forms a highly saline bay on the east side of the Caspian Sea, in Turkmenistan.
