Caption: Mountains, Iran, infrared satellite image. North is at top. These parallel mountain ranges are part of the Zagros Mountains. They rise to sheer rugged peaks with steep canyons and gorges carved into the sides of the mountains. This area is on Iran's Persian Gulf coast (sea at bottom, black), with a generally arid or semi-arid climate. The Mehrakan Salt Lake (white, bottom right) forms part of the coastal lowlands. Inland, peaks rise to heights of over 2000 metres. This 180-kilometre-wide image was taken on 28 February 1973, in visible and infrared wavelengths, by the Multispectral Scanner (MSS) sensor on NASA's Landsat 1 satellite.
