The Aral Sea is an endorheic saline lake in Central Asia located between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Since the 1960s its level and its amount of water are promptly decreasing due to drawing of water from main feeding rivers - the
Amu Darya and the Syr Darya. Before the shallowing the Aral Sea was the fourth biggest lake in the world. By today the drying Aral Sea has moved 100 km away from its former coastline near Muinak, Uzbekistan.
