I read that report, but didn't catch that Great Salt Lake was top on the list. Someday I'd like to see that lake. It makes an interesting comparison to Lake Okeechobee, which by the way is much closer to salt water (25 miles from the Atlantic and 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico) and only 14 ft above sea level.
The Great Salt Lake is +4000 ft above sea level and 500 miles to the Pacific.
The one thing they do have in common is depth: both are shallow, with average depths below 20 ft.
