Dasht-e Kevir
  October 1, 2000
  • Description: The Dasht-e Kevir, or Great Salt Desert, is the largest desert in Iran. It is a primarily uninhabited wasteland, composed of mud and salt marshes covered with crusts of salt that protect the meager moisture from completely evaporating.

The USGS/EROS Agency is responsible for aerial photography and mapping.  Many of their images are beautiful works of art in their own right.
