Lakes in Mongolia’s Great Lakes Depression50.2N 92.6E
As its name would suggest, Mongolia’s Great Lakes Depression contains several large bodies of water. Visible near the top edge is Lake Uvs Nuur, which appears bright white here as its surface is frozen.
In the center of the image, south of Lake Uvs, are Lake Khyargas (above) and Lake Airag (below). The former is significantly larger than the latter. It is dark blue in color, although the eastern half is slightly greener. The smaller Lake Airag is bright green.
Continuing south, several other lakes can be observed near the bottom of the image: Lake Khar, Lake Dörgön and Lake Khar-Us (right to left). These lakes show varying shades of blue, green and brown.
