Razzah Lake is considered the second largest water depression in Iraq and Euphrates is considered the main feeder through Warar Barrage which connects it to Habaniya Lake which receives water directly from Euphrates. The drop in Euphrates water level has led to a continuous drop in Razzah Lake water level . The research involves specifying the water surface area of the lake for the period 2007, 2010, 2013 using aerial photos of the lake which lies within the administrative boundaries of Karbala Province. A GPS model has been used to locate the dry areas during these periods , It was found that the ;lake dry surface area during the period 2007-2010 was 175,901 sq km while the dry area between 3010 and 2013 was 53,147 sq km, that is three times more.
