Abstract

Earthshots introduces remote sensing by showing examples of how environmental changes look from space.

Devils Lake in northeastern North Dakota is a closed basin lake. Located at the lowest point within its basin, Devils Lake has no outlet. The result is that the lake is more prone to significant lake level variations. Lately, it has only been rising.

USGS North Dakota Water Science Center graph shows the lake’s level has been higher in the past two decades than ever recorded.
