Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Salton Lake, (search)
Salton Lake, A body of water that appeared unexpectedly in a depression in the Colorado Desert in California, somewhat north and west of the head of the Gulf of California, in the summer of 1891. Its appearance created much interest among scientists, as for a time its origin was unknown, and its gradual subsidence after a few months led to a thorough survey of the region, which established the fact that the cause of the short-lived lake was simply an overflow of the Colorado River.
