Dongting Lake, China

 (JPG) Dongting Lake, China (5.4 MB) ( 4,850 x 7,960 )
These images show dramatic change in the water at Dongting Lake in Hunan province, China. A flood crest surged down the Yangtze River in late August of this year, but the embankments made by residents there held. The left image was acquired on September 2, 2002 and shows the extent of the lake. The right image was obtained March 19, 2002 before the flooding began. The images cover an area of 39 x 119 km. The image is centered at 29.3 degrees north latitude, 112.9 degrees east longitude.
