Caption: Great Salt Desert, satellite image. North is at top. Desert soil and mud is light brown, barren rocky areas are pink, and salt pans are blue. The Dasht-e Kavir (valley of desert), or Great Salt Desert, is in northern Iran, and is the largest desert in Iran. It is primarily an uninhabited wasteland, composed of mud and salt marshes covered with crusts of salt that retain a small amount of moisture. The area shown in this image is around 60 kilometres wide. The image data was obtained on 25 April 2001, by the Landsat 7 satellite.
