Description JSC2000-E-02760 --- X-SAR/SRTM image of Mongolia covers an area reaching from the Tagnyn Nuruu Range in the northwest to the Toktokhyn Shil Range and the Uvs Nuur Lake in the southeast showing height differences of more then 2500 meters. The temperatures in this area go down to -57.3 degrees Fahrenheit, even though its latitude is the same as that of Vancouver, Canada.

Description JSC2000-E-02750 --- This ground scene covers swamps along Mongolia's Uvs Nuur Lake appearing during the summer as well as steppes and semi-arid areas along the foot of the mountains. The vegetation strongly depends on the elevation and the exposition of the mountain slopes. Larch forests can be found on wet north-oriented slopes while steppe vegetation grows on dry southern slopes. The transition zone is covered by grassland. Due to the rough climate the larches grow only a few millimeters per year but live for more then 400 years. Because of its unique diversity in landscape and vegetation this area is now an UNESCO protected reservation. Information on the Mongolian site was provided by Mr. Rolf Kastner, Institute for Geography of the Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Numberg, Germany. Note: All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.
