Description ISS011-E-07865 (3 June 2005) --- Aral Sea coastlines in Kazakhstan are featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 11 crewmember on the International Space Station. The arrow-shaped island in the Aral Sea once was a 35 kilometer-long visual marker, indicating the Aral Sea to astronauts. This 2005 image shows how much the coastline has changed as the sea level has dropped during the last three decades and shows that the island is now part of the mainland. Deep blues and greens indicate the water-covered areas. The exposed sea floor is characterized by old shorelines (parallel lines surrounding the island) and outlines of ancient deltas.

Description STS106-704-092 (8-20 September 2000) --- One of the STS-106 crew members on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis used a handheld 70mm camera to photograph this image of the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. According to geologists that have been studying aerial and space-to-Earth photos, the Aral Sea has diminished dramatically since the 1950's. By 1990, the surface area of the Aral had decreased by more than 50 percent, and the salinity had tripled since 1960, when the sea covered about 68,000 square kilometers. The most noticeable changes observed from orbit between January, 1998 and September, 2000 have been the expansion of the large north-trending island, the decrease in total water area, and the isolation of the smaller northern water body.

Description ISS015-E-07874 (12 May 2007) --- A major dust storm (center right) along the east side of the Aral Sea, Kazakhstan, is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 15 crewmember on the International Space Station while passing over central Asia. The white, irregular lines along the bottom of the image are salt and clay deposits on the present coastline. On the spring day when the ISS crew shot the image, winds were blowing from the west (lower left). The gray, puffy appearance is typical of dust clouds, allowing scientists to distinguish dust from fog and smog. The dust in this image is rising from the sea bed of the Aral Sea, from a point close to the middle of the original Aral Sea of 40--50 years ago, then the fourth largest inland sea on Earth. Heavy extraction of water from the main supply river, the Amu Dary'a, has resulted in rapid shrinking of the sea. According to scientists, dust storms have been occurring in the Aral Sea region for thousands of years, but since the drastic shrinking of the sea over the past half-century an important change in dust composition has occurred. The dust now includes fertilizer and pesticide washed into the Sea from the extensive cotton fields of the Amu Dary'a floodplain. Years of liberal application of agricultural chemicals have resulted in concentration of these pollutants on the sea bed. These are now exposed to the wind and transported hundreds of kilometers in a generally easterly direction. Research suggests that the remobilized chemicals are the cause of high rates of many diseases in the populations along the north, east and southern margins of the Aral Sea. This is one of the unintended consequences of the shrinking of the sea, which has made international news for many years due to the loss of the fishing industry and other significant ecological problems.
