Baikal[edit]

Pretty sure it's largest fresh water lake by volume, not absolute largest. Wilhelm Ritter 01:24, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

The largest freshwater lake is called Baikal. --Ghirla-трёп- 11:46, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

History[edit]

A nice sample of pro-Chinese propaganda. Please eliminate irredentist overtones. --Ghirla-трёп- 11:46, 15 May 2007 (UTC)


picture about the lake from 2007[edit]

We need a new photo. Some newspaper wrote the lake is now just a desert like lake Aral, lake CHad. --Tamás Kádár 16:22, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

The meaning of Balkhash[edit]

Does anybody know the meaning of Balkhash ? It may help to understand the history of the lake.

Two great satellite photos[edit]

These NASA satellite photos show the rapid melting of the lake over one week in 2003. Tried adding but currently the article seems overloaded with content.

The photos really demonstrate the ice and melting of the lake. --Lukemcurley (talk) 09:20, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
