The Southwestern Gobi Desert

This low oblique view shows great detail of the rugged terrain of
the southwestern Gobi Desert. Scattered linear ridges and es-
carpments interlaced with gravel filled valleys and plains make
up the features of this region of the Gobi Desert. The area is
also very dry and experiences extreme temperatures from season to
season. (S28-153-068)
