The Lop Nur Potash Ponds are located in the Taklamakan Desert of northern China. Potash, a form of potassium salt, is a major nutrient for plant growth and a key ingredient in fertilizers. The bright colors seen in this Overview occur because the water is dyed blue to absorb more sunlight and heat, thereby reducing the amount of time it takes for water to evaporate and the potash to crystallize.
