Oroumieh Lake, some 370 miles (600 kilometers) northwest of Tehran, Iran was said to be the largest lake in the world. Would it still be the largest lake few years from now?

The lake is turning to salt due to drought that drained the lake and some misguided policies in irrigation. Farmers near the area is being threatend because storms sometimes carry the salt far afield.

Here are some photos of the Oroumieh Lake in Iran.
