Are there any lakes that are famous for how much water they lose to evaporation?

    Mono Lake, the oldest lake in North America, is known to have very fluctuating water levels. It is east of the Sierra Mountains, near Yosemite National Park. It is an unique water body in that it has no natural outlet, so evaporation and diversion for human consumption are the only ways the water leaves the lake. Basically, it is a ancient puddle of water. The lake loses about 45 inches a year, but is replenished by the spring melt from the Sierra Mountains.
