Dagze Co (1,054,615 bytes) ( 2,424 x 2,034 )
Dagze Co (Lake) is one of many inland lakes in Tibet, with a present area of 260 km2 (100 square miles). In glacial times, the region was considerably wetter, and lakes were correspondingly much larger. This is evident by the numerous fossil shorelines that circle the lake, and attest to the presence of a larger, deeper lake. Changes in climate have resulted in greater aridity of the Tibetan Plateau, and drying up of the lakes. The image covers an area of 36.4 x 30.5 km, and was acquired October 8, 2001. The image is centered at 31.9 degrees north latitude, 87.5 degrees east longitude.
