Over the last hundred years or so, the instrumental temperature record has shown a trend in climate of increased global mean temperature, i.e., global warming. Global warming and climate change have caused a decrease in lake waters, an increase in the sea level, and changes in streams and precipitation models and have started to show negative impacts on all aquatic organisms from plankton to mammals. Semi-arid and arid areas are particularly exposed to the impacts of climate change on freshwater. Unfortunately, due to global warming and the uncontrolled irrigation of farms, the "eye" of the lake has dried and rest of the lake is drying. This project has been started to get data about decreasing the water level and the physical changes in the Lake Meke. From September to March, the level of water has been determined. For this purpose, photogrammetric measurements have been done. Kite and remote-control camera has been used. With calibrated cameras and points on ground, the lake's surface has been evaluation photogrammetric software and got merged with present time map.
