Higher Water Levels in Rudall River, Australia22S 122.9E
Lake Dora, visible in the upper left quadrant of this image of Western Australia, is a seasonal salt lake that lies between the vegetated sand fields of the Great Sandy and Gibson Deserts. The Rudall River occasionally brings water to Lake Dora.
The Rudall River is an ephemeral river in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Its headwaters lie below the Watrara Range near Island Hill and flow eastward until it discharges into Lake Dora. Here, Lake Dora’s water levels appear high, and several large pools of water can be observed along the river’s course, due to heavy rains from Tropical Cyclone Rusty (17S). Lake Disappointment, in the lower left quadrant, also shows higher-than-usual water levels.
