45 miles long, 20 miles wide, and, at its highest level, 76 feet
deep in the sink‘s center Salton Sea was the largest inland lake
in California. The U.S. Navy started using the Salton Sea in

1942, they opened the wartime Salton Sea Test Base on the
southwest shore. In late 1944, the 509th Composite Squadron
from Wendover Army Air Field began dropping the first out
of over 150 test atomic bombs into the Salton Sea.
