The continued rise of Great Salt Lake, Utah




The Great Salt Lake rose 5.0 feet from September 25,1983, to July 1, 1984, the second largest seasonal rise on record since 1847. The maximum seasonal rise was observed the previous year when the lake rose 5.1 feet from September 18,1982, to June 30,1983. The lake declined only 0.5 foot during summer 1983; thus, the net rise from September 18,1982, to July 1,1984, was 9.6 feet. By comparison, the previously recorded maximum net rise over a similar period of time was 4.75 feet from 1970 to 1972.
