Talk:Great Lakes Depression

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I know that this article is still under construction, but I would like to add that my impression is that Khar us nuur and Khar nuur are also inside the Depression. In any case, they are big lakes, too. Also, my impression is that the depression might stretch into Govi-Altai and maybe even Bayankhongor (don't have my Avto zamyn atlas with me, otherwise I would implement these points myself).

There might be missing a zero to the size of the Depression, or in any case this site gives a larger site for the Uvs nuur basin alone, while this site seems to give yet another number, which however is still greater than 39.000 km².

While I am at it, the bit about seismic activity seems a bit questionable as well. The map at the top of this site seems to imply that northwestern Khövsgöl and the Govi-Altai are pretty active, and that much of the basin is actually rather inactive. For further reference, there is also a paper called "SEISMIC HAZARD ASSESSMENT OF MONGOLIA AND ULAANBAATAR" located at the same server and locatable by google, which seems to give similar results.

And finally, it would be nice to know the relevant pages of the books you are quoting from, but I guess you were about to add them anyway.

But it's definitely an article worth having. Keep it up. Yaan (talk) 01:31, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Achit nuur seems rather peripheral, Uureg nuur is arguably not part of the basin. Khar nuur, Airag nuur, Dorgon nuur and Khar-us nuur (the big one in Khovd, not the small one near Olgii sum of Uvs aimag ;) ) definitely are, at least when you include Khyargas nuur.
