Caspian Sea- January 12th, 2013

Fresh snow covers the terrain of Kazakhstan by the Caspian Sea, and the northern part of the sea is covered in ice. Despite the inflow of the Volga River (upper left), the northern portion of the Caspian Sea averages only 17 ft in depth, and responds to the region’s continental climate, which is cold in winter and hot and dry in the summer.┬áThe southern part of the Sea is deeper and remains ice-free throughout the winter.
