Image of the Day - Woojin Chang (11/10)
At one point, Aral Sea was considered as one of the four largest lakes in the world. However, it has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s when Soviet Union started its irrigation project. By 2006, central portion of the lake had disappeared, and by 2014, eastern basin had dried up and became a part of desert. These images reveal that Aral Sea will disappear in near future if no necessary change is made.
