The bed of crystalline salts known as Searles Lake, in southeastern California, contains the most valuable potash-bearing brine known in the United States.

This salt body has an exposed surface area estimated at 11 or 12 square miles and an average depth of about 70 feet. For the most part it is firm and compact enough to support a wagon and team even during wet seasons, when it is' sometimes Get this from a library.

Paleoclimate record for Lake Coyote, California, and the Last Glacial Maximum and deglacial ward convection of dense saline water (brine) beneath the lake beds could partially account for low salt budgets [Teller et al., ].

For the more concentrated brine, the rate of evaporation may range up to one-half of the foregoing amount.

Thus, the use of solar evaporation in the Searles Lake region would be particularly attractive. However, a drawback is that solar evaporation is seasonal in nature and the most efficient evaporation season has a duration of about one-half   of boron rich evaporation products at Searles salt Lake, California (Felmy and Weare, ), and halite solubility in the Dead Sea (Israel) (Krumgalz and Millero, ).
