Image Caption: Looking much like a piece of weathered wood, the Great Kavir Salt Desert (34.5N, 54.5E) of Iran illustrates the effects of wind erosion on the landscape. The region, known locally as the Dasht-e-Kavir, is about 300 kilometers southeast of Tehran, and typified by intricately folded sediments, that have been leveled by wind erosion to leave these beautiful and colorful formations.
