Fires South of Lake Argyle, Australia – June 30th, 2012

June 30th, 2012 Category: Fires, Image of the day, Lakes

Australia – June 26th, 2012

Plumes of smoke from two large bushfires south of Lake Argyle (top center), near the border between Australia’s Northern Territory (right half of image) and Western Australia (left half of image) blow to the West. The plume of smoke from the fire to the South fans out over a greater area. Such fires are common in this part of Australia during the southern hemisphere winter, and this season they have been further spurred by dry conditions in the preceding months.

Visible to the south is Lake Argyle, Australia’s second largest artificial lake by volume. It is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme and its primary inflow is the Ord River, while the Bow River and many other smaller creeks also flow into the dam.

Lake Argyle, in Western Australia near the border with the Northern Territory (east of the lake), appears mostly surrounded by green vegetation here. A few months ago, the area in the vicinity of the lake appeared dry and reddish brown in color (click here for an image taken in late November 2009).

Lake Argyle is Australia’s second largest artificial lake by volume and is also recognised as an important wetland area under the Ramsar Convention. The lake is now home to 26 species of native fish and a population of freshwater crocodiles currently estimated at some 25,000.
