We used the lake bathymetry map and temporal variation in the lake’s elevation to assess the distance between the two main resorts (Bari and Golmankhaneh) located on the old shoreline and the nearest part of Lake Urmia with water depth of at least 1 m. 1 m is the minimum depth needed for tourist boats (personal communication from local boatmen). Others report a slightly lower minimum depth of 0.8 m for kayaks and rafts in rivers (USACH, 2016). However, because of sediment crusts on the lake bed, higher depth would be required for boating.
