Senegal Salt Ponds

July 18 · Issue #1683 · View online
Daily Overview
Man-made salt ponds dot the Saloum River Delta in Senegal, West Africa. Solar evaporation turns the water into a salty brine and, due to variable algal concentrations, creates vivid colors ranging from pale green to bright orange. In summer months, the brines turn dense enough to crystallize and salt crystals sink to the bottom, where they can be scooped out.
