Description ISS010-E-13393 (15 January 2005) --- Mt. Damavand, Iran is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 10 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). Located approximately 50 kilometers to the northeast of Tehran, Mt. Damavand is an impressive stratovolcano that reaches 5,670 meters (18,598 feet) in elevation. Damavand, which is part of the Alborz mountain range that borders the Caspian Sea to the north, is believed by scientists to be a young volcano that has mostly formed during the Holocene Epoch (over approximately the last 10,000 years). The western flank of the volcano includes solidified lava flows with flow levees ? ?walls? formed as the side edges of flowing lava cooled rapidly, forming a chute that channeled the hotter interior lava. Two such flows with well-defined levees are highlighted by snow on the mountainside (center). Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in the Middle East.

Description ISS012-E-18774 (28 Feb. 2006) --- Salt Dome in the Zagros Mountains, Iran is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 12 crew member on the International Space Station. The Zagros Mountains in southwestern Iran present an impressive landscape of long linear ridges and valleys extending hundreds of kilometers, formed by collision of the Asian and Arabian tectonic plates. According to scientists, stresses induced in the Earth?s crust by the collision caused extensive folding of the preexisting layered sedimentary rocks, with subsequent differential erosion removing softer rocks (such as siltstone and mudstone) while leaving harder rocks (such as limestone and dolomite) to form the linear ridges of the mountains. The depositional environment and tectonic history of the rocks was conducive to the formation and trapping of petroleum, and the Zagros region is an important part of Persian Gulf production. This image of the southwestern edge of the Zagros mountain belt includes another common feature of the region ? a salt dome (?Kuh-e-Namak? or ?mountain of salt? in Farsi). Thick layers of minerals such as halite (common table salt) typically accumulate in closed basins during alternating wet and dry climatic conditions. Over geologic time, the scientists say, these layers of salt are buried under overburden of younger layers of rock. The overburden pressure causes the lower-density salt to flow upwards, bending the overlaying rock layers and creating a dome-like structure. Erosion has spectacularly revealed the uplifted tan and brown rock layers surrounding the white Kuh-e-Namak to the northwest and southeast (center of image). Radial drainage patterns indicate another salt dome is located to the southwest (image left center). If the rising plug of salt (called a salt diapir) breaches the surface, it can become a flowing salt glacier. Salt domes are an important target for oil exploration, as the impermeable salt frequently traps petroleum beneath other rock layers.

Description ISS008-E-12570 (22 January 2004) --- Backdropped by Earth?s horizon and the blackness of space, an unpiloted Progress supply vehicle docked to the International Space Station (ISS) was photographed by one of the Expedition 8 crewmembers. Parts of Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf are also visible.

Description ISS012-E-18779 (28 Feb. 2006) --- Winter in the Dasht-e-Lut Desert, eastern Iran is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 12 crew member on the International Space Station. The image takes advantage of the low angle of illumination to reveal linear geological structures of the Iranian mountain range bordering the western edge of the basin known as Dasht-e-Lut. The range rises 1818 meters (6000 feet) above sea level and lies 750 kilometers (466 miles) north of the Persian Gulf. The convoluted appearance results from erosion of folded and faulted rocks ? softer rocks erode away quickly, leaving more resistant rock to form linear ridges perpendicular to the direction of compression. While not a major oil producing region like the Zagros Fold Belt to the southwest, the mountains of east-central Iran contain economically important deposits of copper and other metals. Little vegetation is visible from space in the arid interior basin of the Dasht-e-Lut. Iran is climatically part of the Afro-Asian belt of deserts that stretch from the Cape Verde islands off West Africa all the way to Mongolia near Beijing. The patchy, elongated, light-colored feature in the foreground (parallel to the mountain range) is the northernmost of the Dasht dry lakes that stretch southward 300 kilometers (186 miles). High country is the source of precipitation-derived water in all near-tropical deserts. Agricultural fields (small dark patches in the image) that depend on this precipitation are located down slope near the margin of the dry, salty soils of the lake.

Description STS107-E-05290 (21 January 2003) --- Using a 400mm lens on a digital still camera, one of the STS-107 crewmembers aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia captured this winter image of Mashhad, Iran. With a population of just over two million, Mashhad is Iran?s second-largest city. It is located in the Kashaf River valley near the northeast corner of the country, not far away from the borders of Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. Besides being the capital and center of commerce for Khorasan province, Mashhad is a tourist center as well as a site of pilgrimage for millions to the shrine of martyred Shi?ate Imam Reza. The crew of STS-107 acquired this snow-enhanced image just after noon (local time) on January 21, 2003. The long runways of the international airport, on the southeastern edge of the city, run parallel to the prevailing valley winds. Note how little snow is visible in the urbanized areas and the discoloration of snow in the surrounding area, probably due to wind-borne smoke generated by fuel burning in the city. The image was provided by the Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory at Johnson Space Center. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA-JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth ( http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ ).

Description S99-E-5376 (13 February 2000) --- The southeast corner of the Caspian Sea in northern Iran. An electronic still camera (ESC), mounted in one of Endeavour's aft flight deck windows, is recording imagery of hundreds of Earth targets for the EarthKAM project. Students across the United States and in France, Germany and Japan are taking photos throughout the STS-99 mission. And they are using these new photos, plus all the images already available in the EarthKAM system, to enhance their classroom learning in Earth and space science, social studies, geography, mathematics and more. For general EarthKAM information and more images from this flight, go to http://www.earthkam.ucsd.edu/
