    Hey [and sorry if this isn't the correct branch of science, didn't know exactly where to put it...]!
    I've read a salt pan has salt and minerals left behind from the old ponds/lakes, and these can reflect the sun and appear blinding white. But I was just wondering if anyone had anymore insight into the weather/heat around/on a salt pan. Is the air/earth very hot, or do the minerals reflect it away before it can penetrate the earth and 'scorch' it?
