    The Qingtu Lake, suffered from drought for over 50 years, witnessed three square kilometers of water surface again after 8.6 million cubic meters of water from Shiyang River were infused into the lake by the end of October this year. Extensive farming since the 1950s sapped underground water in Minqin and destroyed the local ecology.

    The 400-sq-km, 60-meter-deep Qingtu Lake dried up in the 30 years since the 1960s, and by the early 1990s, the lake had been smothered by creeping yellow sand. The newly revived lake plays a vital role in preventing desertification in Minqin County, which is one of China's three major sandstorm originations due to its lying between the two deserts of Tengger and Badain Jaran.

    Minqin County swallowed by the desert

    In north-west China, desert sands are swallowing up farmland and towns. Mingqin is a shrinking oasis area that government advisers privately describe as an "ecological disaster area", and yet eco-refugees have been resettled here because their home environments became no longer fit for habitation. Villagers must battle the encroaching desert that is destroying their homes and their crops

    An abandoned house facing the approaching desert in Minqin. All 364 villagers moved out of the village after the desert expanded into nearby farm fields. The 87,000 hectares of forest planted in the past 10 years, an effort to curb the desert expansion, withered and died in vast stretches due to a reduction of the groundwater level and water supply difficulties in Minqin. Only a little more than 20,000 hectares survived

    Minqin China: Tan plumes of dust swept across the Tengger Desert
    Plumes of dust sweep across the Tengger desert in north-central China. Hemmed by the Qilian mountains in the south and the Yellow river in the east, the desert forms the southern border of Inner Mongolia. Though not visible, the Great Wall of China runs through this image between the Tengger and the mountains in the south. The large lake to the south of the mountains is Lake Qinghai

  • Drainage Basin for Rain Water

    2010-7-10

    It's raining hard outside now.
    There's a large piece of land nearby,which is more deeper than other places around it,now it can be used as a place for water.
     
    This is Drainage Basin.This is how a city works when rain comes.
     
    Unlike in China, many cities have no place for rain water.And when there's heavy rain, trouble will come.

    We’ve mentioned cosmonaut Maksim Surayev’s blog before, but it really is worth checking out—some of the most entertaining dispatches ever written from orbit.

    Even his photos have personality, like this one, of his watch floating in front of the space station’s window.

    Here’s the link.
