Ok. So I have 'gone all alluvial on you' here, lately. Sorry. But today I agreed to review a paper about alluvial fan flooding in Iran and decided to go and look around. I don't expect to ever make it to Iran, but the desert geomorphology (and the structural geology, and the salt glaciers, etc., etc.) found there is absolutely amazing. Nice that Google Earth can allow us to check it out. Several members of the (lagging!) pathology team have chimed in previously on the geological virtues of the Iranian countryside: geopathology.
This particular fan caught my eye because of its elegant involvement with agricultural fields. Admittedly, the tonality of the image (and presumably the region) is a bit bland. Several more to come. Hard to tread the virtual ground in Iran without stepping on a fan.
