  • Longer description:
    Tunisian Chott El Jerid is a seasonal lake of about 580 Km2 that is completely dry most of the year. The Surface of the lake is covered with a hard NaCl crust covering underground water. Given the extremely harsh temperature, dust and chemical environment, this extreme environment is an excellent location for validation and testing of communications systems and planetary instrumentation under dry and corrosive conditions. From the astrobiology point of view it represents an ideal environment to test how life may adapt to extreme saline conditions.
