Caspian Sea – March 8th, 2013

The Caspian Sea can be considered as having three parts: a northern part, with a mean water depth of only 10 m; a central part, where the water depth increases up to 788 m; and a southern part, wherein the water depth increases up to 1025 m. Climate change may be responsible for a decline in water levels since the 1930s. This image focuses on the southern section, whose southern rim is lined by sediments and where there is a considerable presence of sediments by the southeastern shores.
