  STS078-732-082 Lake Milh, Iraq June 1996
Lake Milh, also known as the Sea of Salt, can be seen in this northeast-looking view. Located west-southwest of Baghdad, Lake Milh is a depression in which excess water from the Euphrates River, is diverted by a controlled escape channel or canal. The lake is rather shallow and water levels change with the seasons. Due to the salts and the changing water levels, few recreational areas exist around the lake.
