About this book

Lake Issyk-Kul is a closed lake located in the Tien Shan mountain belt of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan. It is the worlds 5th deepest (668m) lake and the 2nd largest high altitude lake in the world (1607m above sea level). The lake is currently at risk from a decline in water level resulting in progressively increasing salinity, incomplete vertical water exchange, and contamination by past and present industrial activity. For the first time the main physical, chemical, biological and geological characteristics of the lake are presented.
