Uzbekistan and the Aral Sea

We studied this topic in one of my classes a few days ago.

Can you find Muynak?
Can you find Muynak?

Twenty years ago Muynak was an island in the Aral Sea. It was the centre of the Soviet Union fishing industry. Now it is in the middle of a desert of salt.

The water which used to feed the Aral Sea is now used for cotton fields. The Aral Sea was once the 4th largest inland sea in the world, now it is just a lake.

So here is the full colour map, and if you click your cursor over the map you can see a nice big image with no grey!
