|East of Kashan is one of the most brutal deserts
in the world.
Dasht-e Kavir, Iran
Like swirls of paint on an enormous canvas,
shallow lakes, mudflats, and salt marshes share the sinuous valleys on
Iran’s largely uninhabited Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. This
image was acquired by Landsat 7’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus sensor.
