Caption: Gobi Desert, satellite image. Tributaries of the Huang River cross this cold desert, where temperatures can fall as low as -45 degrees Celsius and rise as high as 40 degrees Celsius. This part of the Gobi lies within China. It is mainly covered in bare rock, but the green and white areas to the right of the image are salt crusts formed from the evaporation of ponds.
