Australia - January 12th, 2012

A series of lakes in the Barkly Tableland of Australia’s Northern Territory are arranged in a roughly horizontal line: (from west to east) Lake Woods, Lake Tarrabool, Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester.

The latter two are so close together that they appear as one large lake in this image. Here, the lakes appear white in color, in part from sediments and minerals, and in part from sun glint. Visible to the north of the lakes is smoke from a wildfire.

Australia - August 2nd, 2011

This image stretches from the Gulf of Carpentaria (top), in northern Australia, to an area of the nation known as Channel Country (lower right quadrant), due to the numerous river channels that are flooded in times of heavy precipitation. Here, these river channels appear dark green.

Visible in the upper left quadrant are a series of green and white lakes on the westernmost edge of the Barkly Tableland in the Northern Territory. These are, from left to right, Lakes Woods, Tarrabool, Corella and Sylvester.

Lined up across the bottom of this image of the westernmost edge of the Barkly Tableland in Australia’s Northern Territory are several lakes: (from west to east) Lake Woods, Lake Tarrabool, Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester.

The latter two are so close together that they appear as one large lake in this image. Sediments, minerals and algae give the lakes both white and green coloring.

Situated on the westernmost edge of the Barkly Tableland, in the northeastern part of Australia’s Northern Territory, are several lakes: (from left to right) Lake Woods, Lake Tarrabool, Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester.

Sediments, minerals and algae make the lakes appear whitish grey in color, with green edges. Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester are so close together that they appear as one large lake in this image.

Australia - July 27th, 2009

The Barkly Tableland in the northeastern part of Australia’s Northern Territory is home to several lakes, including (from left to right) Lake Woods, Lake Tarrabool, Corella Lake and Lake Sylvester. The latter two are closely clustered together and thus appear as one large lake in this image.

These lakes on situated on the westernmost edge of the Barkly Tableland. Their volume and surface area fluctuate depending on the rainfall in the region. Please click here to see an image from five months earlier in which the lakes appear larger and the surrounding area is green with vegetation.

When precipitation levels are high and Lake Tarrabool is completely flooded, it is the largest wooded swamp in tropical Australia. Its swampland provides an important breeding area for waterfowl.
