Middle East :: Iran
Caption
In this enhanced false-color satellite photo, shallow lakes, mudflats, and salt marshes share the sinuous valleys on Iran's largely uninhabited Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. Due to the high heat and arid climate, marshes, lakes, and wadis experience an extreme rate of groundwater evaporation leaving large crusts of salt. Image courtesy of USGS.
