X-SAR/SRTM image of Mongolia covers an area reaching from the Tagnyn Nuruu Range in the northwest to the Toktokhyn Shil Range and the Uvs Nuur Lake in the southeast showing height differences of more then 2500 meters. The temperatures in this area go down to -57.3 degrees Fahrenheit, even though its latitude is the same as that of Vancouver, Canada.
