Composite Image: Kazakhstan

This image of Kazakhstan shows the border the country shares with China, featuring a large part of the Zaysan Koli, a major lake that is fed by many rivers. The Ishim and Irtysh rivers flow north through Russia to the Arctic Ocean. In this composite image, there is ice present on the left-hand surface of the lake. The ice appears lighter in color than the rest of the lake.
