Landslide Lake, Tibet

Landslide Lake, Tibet

 (JPG) Landslide Lake, Tibet (212,348 bytes) ( 1,400 x 700 )
Water levels in the Pareechu River in Tibet continue to build behind a natural dam, created by a landslide in the early summer. On September 1, 2004, ASTER captured the left image of the new lake. The right image was acquired May 24, 2000, before the landslide. The water appears to have filled the basin and is building upriver in the northwest. The new lake poses a potential threat to communities downstream in northern India, which will be affected if the landslide-dam bursts. Both perspective views were created from DEM data produced from the ASTER data. The location of the lake is 32.3 degrees north, 79.7 degrees east.
