Mongolia - July 17th, 2010

Several lakes can be observed in Mongolia’s Uvs province, located in the west of the country. The province has both mountainous and Gobi semi-desert climatic zones, although this image focuses on the latter.

The five lakes visible here belong to the country’s Great Lakes Depression. The northernmost is Lake Khyargas, dark greenish blue with an elongated shape and irregular edges. Smaller, greener in color and just to its south is Lake Airag. Due south of those two are Lake Khar (green) and Lake Dörgön (further south, dark blue). Finally, the irregularly shaped Lake Khar-Us, showing various shades of green, is located west of the aforementioned pair.
