China - October 3rd, 2011

This image of China shows the eastern part of the Taklamakan Desert (light tan, left) and the Kuruktag Desert (darker and more orange tan, right). Located between the two is Lop Lake (Lop Nur), a group of small, now seasonal salt lake sand marshes.

The group of lakes appears as an indentation that is slightly darker in color than its surroundings. On the northern edge is a rectangular, teal green area, a Potassium chloride factory on salt pans in Lop Nur.
