Log Description

This set of time-lapse images shows how the extent of the Bonneville Salt Flats' halite crust and surface pond change over time. The Bonneville Salt Flats is a dynamic system and will dry out and flood several times a year.  This spot is one of the last areas to dry out. Check out images from a weather station at the center of the salt flats here.
