These close-ups of one of the larger lakes show how the formation and reduction of the lakes affected sand dunes.
- Sand dunes became inundated as the lakes formed. In the 2001 image, many larger dunes were small islands in the lake.
- Bright sand dunes re-emerged as the lake level dropped. In the 2013 and 2017 images, a few dunes are still islands.
- The darker ground in the later images indicates former water levels—the darker tone means moistened ground.
