Dabusun Lake

Dabusun or Dabuxun Lake, alternately known as Dabasun Nor, is a lake beside the town Qarhan, just north of Golmud in the Haixi Prefecture of Qinghai Province in northwestern China. Fed by the main course of the Golmud River, it is the largest present-day lake in the Qarhan Playa. Like the other lakes of the surrounding Qaidam Basin, it is saline, with 307–338 grams of salt per liter of water. Dabusun or Dabasun Nor is a romanization of its Mongolian name, which means "Salt Lake". In Mongolian, the name is sometimes designated to distinguish it from West Dabusun Lake, it is sometimes misspelled Dabsan. It was known as the Dalai Dabasun, meaning "Sea" or "Ocean of Salt". Dabuxun is the pinyin romanization of the Chinese name 達布遜, a transcription into characters of the Mongolian name. Dabusun lies in the Dabusun subbasin in the central Qarhan Playa, it is one of the many saltwater lakes in the endorheic Qaidam Basin, bound by the Qilian Mountains to the north, the Altun to the west, the Kunlun to the south.

Lying at an elevation of 2,675 m above sea level, it has a mean annual temperature of 0.1 °C despite lying on the same latitude as Greece and Virginia in the United States. Dabasun is the largest present lake in the Qarhan Playa, it is fed by the main course of the Golmud River from the south and, to a lesser extent, by mineral springs from the north. In Qaidam's hyperarid climate, there is only 28–40 mm of annual rainfall but about 3,000 mm of annual evaporation, its area is thus variable by season and year 184–334 km2 but increasing in the wetter winter and spring and decreasing through the summer and fall. The lake is elongated, its length is about 30 km east to west, its width is about 4–7.5 km north to south. The maximum depth is 1.72 m, the average depth varies from 0.5 to 1.02 m. Although the northern springs contribute much less volume, their waters carry far greater concentrations of solutes and are important to the chemical composition of the lake. Below, the alternating beds of mud and halite extend at least 40 m in some places.

In addition to common salt, it has an abundance of carnallite in an area of 2 km × 35 km and magnesium sulfate. The known beds are buried by 3 -- 4 m of sedimentation. Paleoclimatologists believe that between 770,000 and 30,000 years ago Dabusun formed part of a much larger Qarhan Lake, which alternated nine times between being a fresh- and saltwater lake. Pollen studies suggest that the area of the lake bed which now underlies Dabusun was raised around 700 m in just the last 500,000 years. Tectonic activity varied sedimentation in the lake by shifting its tributaries and basins, although it remained in the Qarhan Playa during this period. At around 30,000 years ago, this great freshwater lake spread over at least 25,000 km2 with a surface 50–60 m above the present levels of its successors, it was cut off and became saline again around 30,000 years ago and began precipitating salts about 25,000 years ago. It has been shrinking in size by evaporation for most of that time, although it was only about 42 km in circumference in the mid-19th century, when it was visited by the Polono-Russian explorer Przhevalsky.

Until the recent commercial exploitation of the salts and other minerals, the district has remained unpopulated, as the salt deposits made it difficult for the nomads of northwestern China to use the area for their herds. The area's potassium deposits were accidentally discovered in 1957 and exploratory wells found the Yanhu Gas Field north of the lake the next year; the lake lies just west of the G3011 Liuge Expressway. It is serviced by the Dabusun and Qarhan railway stations on the Qingzang Railway. Salt in Chinese history List of lakes and saltwater lakes of China 《达布逊盐湖》 at Baidu Baike
