Image Caption: ISS and Richat Dome, Mauritania
To the right of the International Space Station, the circular feature in
the Mauritanian desert is Richat dome. The 24-mile- (39-km)-wide
structure was formed by intrusion of molten rock at depth, which domed
the overlying rock layers upward. Rock layers of differing compositions
weather away at different rates, so that concentric ridges have
developed within the structure.
