The Lut Desert

The Lut Desert, or Dasht-e-Lut, is the largest desert in Iran and is located in the southeastern part of the country. It is the world’s 27th -largest desert, and was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List on July 17, 2016. It stretches about 480 kilometers (300 mi) long and 320 kilometers (200 mi) wide. In the east rises a great massif of dunes and sand, while in the west an extensive area of high ridges is separated by wind-swept corridors. In its lowest, salt-filled depression—less than 1,000 feet (300 metres) above sea level—the summer heat and low humidity are believed to be unsurpassed on the planet. Between June and October, this arid subtropical area is swept by strong winds, which transport sediment and cause aeolian erosion on a colossal scale. Consequently, the site presents some of the most spectacular examples of aeolian yardang landforms (massive corrugated ridges). It also contains extensive stony deserts and dune fields. The property represents an exceptional example of ongoing geological processes. NASA research results suggest that the Lut Desert in Iran is one of the hottest places on Earth. According to satellite data from NASA in 2005, a surface temperature of 70.7 degrees Celsius was recorded in the Lut desert. This temperature is the highest temperature ever recorded by satellite from the surface of planet Earth. That’s why it is called the ‘2005 point’.
