Image Caption: Richat Structure
The "bulls eye" of the Richat Structure, stands out in the midst of the barren Gres de Chinguetti Plateau in central Mauritania, northwest Africa. The structure represents uplifted, layered (sedimentary) rocks that have been eroded by water and wind into the present shape. Desert sands have invaded the feature from the south.
