Caption: Lake Eyre, Australia, March 2010. Satellite image showing Lake Eyre in the central Australian desert as water began to reach the usually dry salt lake after heavy rainfall in Queensland in January 2010. Water from the Diamantina River (across top right) is emptying into the lake via Warburton Creek (green, down centre). Lake Eyre, which is 15 metres below sea level, has an area of 9,500 square kilometres, but drains a much larger area of 1.2 million square kilometres. Image taken by the SPOT 5 satellite.
