Lake shrinkings from Southwest Turkey

Source: Hurriyet news

Coastline changes of Aksehir and Eber Lakes (SW, Turkey) have been investigated by Sener et al. from Suleyman Demirel University, Isparta, using multi-temporal satellite images since 1975. According to their results, published in the Journal of Water Resources Management, the surface area and volume of these two lakes have been decreased significantly. The Aksehir Lake was even dried up completely during the summer of 2008. doi:10.1007/s11269-009-9467-5
