The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed body of water on Earth by area,
variously classed as the world's largest lake or a full-fledged sea.

The sea has a surface area of 371,000 km2 (143,200 sq mi) and a volume of 78,200 km3 -
18,800 cu mi. It is in an endorheic basin (it has no outflows) and is bounded by northern Iran,
southern Russia, western Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, and eastern Azerbaijan.

The Caspian Sea is the largest inland body of water in the world and accounts for 40 to 44 percent of the total lacustrine waters of the world.[8] The coastlines of the Caspian are shared by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan. The Caspian is divided into three distinct physical regions: the Northern, Middle, and Southern Caspian.[9] The North-Middle boundary is the Mangyshlak threshold, which runs through Chechen Island and Cape Tiub-Karagan. The Middle-South boundary is the Apsheron threshold, a sill of tectonic origin[10] that runs through Zhiloi Island and Cape Kuuli.[11] The Garabogazkl bay is the saline eastern inlet of the Caspian, which is part of Turkmenistan and at times has been a lake in its own right due to the isthmus which cuts it off from the Caspian.

Divisions between the three regions are dramatic. The Northern Caspian only includes the Caspian shelf,[12] and is characterized as very shallow; it accounts for less than one percent of the total wat ...more
