As Spring temperatures sweep across parts of China the salt
lake known as the "China's Dead Sea" changes colors.
Located in Yuncheng, China, the lake changes colors and is a
popular tourist attraction.
It changes colors due to microorganisms called Dunaliella
Dunaliella salina is a type of halophile green micro-algae
especially found in sea salt fields. Known for its antioxidant activity because
of its ability to create large amount of carotenoids, it is also used in
cosmetics and dietary supplements.
The lake is over 500 million years old and is approximately
120 square km.
