Mongolia - May 2nd, 2011

Several bodies of water can be observed here, in Mongolia’s Great Lakes Depression. At the top of the image is Lake Uvs Nuur, whose surface is frozen and appears bright white.

South of Lake Uvs are Lake Khyargas, ice-free and dark turquoise in color and Lake Airag, smaller, also ice-free and mint-green in color.

Several other lakes can be observed near the bottom of the image, including Lake Khar, Lake Dörgön and Lake Khar-Us (right to left). Although these lakes appear mostly green in color, some patches of ice can be seen on the surface of Lakes Khar and Khar-Us.
