  STS078-740-072 Aci and Budur Lakes, Turkey June 1996
The rugged, semi-arid terrain of southwestern Turkey is visible in this northwest-looking view. Aci Lake’s (center of the image) old shorelines are visible as the lake is in the process of evaporating. Lake Burdur is discernible toward the bottom right of the image. Near the bottom center of the image is the evaporated Yarash Lake. Salda Lake is visible near the bottom left of the image. Numerous faults traverse this area of Turkey, which makes this region prone to earthquakes. Wheat is grown in the valleys and plains of the region.
