  • State of Environment of the Aral Sea Basin (2000)
    2000 UNEP/GRID-Arendal
    Since the 1960's, a sharp decrease of the Aral Sea level has been observed. This is connected with the intensive water consumption from the Syr Darya and Amu Darya rivers on agricultural lands. By 1990, the Aral Sea level had decreased by 14 m and the water volume had decreased three times. As the water pulled back, new territory was formed. This area has a high content of sand, salt and waste.
