The timeline suggests the South Aral will be gone by 2019. This directly contradicts the well-sourced information on Wikipedia that the sea level will remain at a stable equilibrium due to groundwater seepage in the Western lobe preventing the lake from completely evaporating.

Which is correct?

It think FTL's since that's more recent study than Wikipedia earlier studies which may not have been updated yet (well it said it was last updated on July 12, 2014).

Think someone should update Wikipedia then.

Not me, I need to make an account and use up so much time to fix it lol. I tried doing it once with my old email and it just takes forever to look up and update with easy enough details.

But FT's source says

36 Aral Sea, Kazakhstan, Nasa.gov:
http://eol.jsc.nasa....=STS085-503-119
Accessed 1st June 2009.

Um, 2009 isn't very recent. And that study doesn't even mention the groundwater!

Following the footnotes for Wikipedia (often the most useful parts) I found a more recent NASA source that referenced a paper discussing the status of the Aral Seas. http://earthobservat...ew.php?id=46685

I just reviewed the abstract for the article but it sounds like efforts to stop and somewhat reverse the shinkage are well underway. http://onlinelibrary...services to you

It might be worth reviewing if there are any more recent comments on the current status of the efforts.
