Summary

Landsat 4 image of the northern end of the South Aral Sea and most of the North Aral Sea, Kazakhstan, on August 19, 1987. Diversion of rivers to irrigation has caused the Aral Sea to shrink dramatically in recent decades. During the 1970s, this was all one lake, but the North Aral Sea had split from the larger southern lake by the time the image was taken (although an artificial connection had been dug). By 1999 the island at the bottom of this image had become part of a peninsula protruding from the eastern coast, and in 2008 most of the southern lake area shown here was dry land.
