Re: CLIMATE of "Dasht-e Kavir"(Iranian salt flat):

With a day time high of 50 degrees Celsius, as stated, a day/night variation of 70 degrees Celsius, as stated, would result in a temperature of minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit).

I think this (the day/night variation of 70 degrees)is an error.

Added coordinates for imagery, normally this is not standard but given the almost fantastical appearance of the image I think it would be beneficial for anyone doubting it's accuracy. Miglewis (talk) 02:50, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

The meaning of dasht-e kavir is "desert plain"; dasht is plain, kavir is desert. (Re: second paragraph on the first page: ie. "Dasht means 'desert' in Persian. It is named after the salt marshes ("kavirs") located there.[2] Namak means 'salt'.") — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.162.188.31 (talk) 19:24, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
