In dry regions, a lake can form when water fills a depression carved by wind erosion or a depression in a lowland surrounded by sand dunes. The water can be supplied from a river or through groundwater recharge. Most of these lakes are intermittent lakes or wandering lakes, such Lop Nur in Xinjiang Province, Juyanhai in Inner Mongolia and the Crescent Moon Spring in Dunhuang, Gansu Province.
