Sfondo

Previously identified as an unnamed area with two small Quaternary centers (IAVCEI 1973), this location corresponds to the lava plateau (480 km2) on the edge of the Dasht-e Lut (Lut desert) of Iran named Gandom Beryan (meaning "Scorched Wheat" in Persian). Also known as Gandom-e Beryan or Rig-e Soukhteh, it is located 80 km N of Shahdad city. Some small cinder cones are present, but the source of the extensive basalt flows is not certain. It has been touted as the "Hottest place on Earth" with reported temperatures as high as 67C in the summer. Ar-Ar dating (Walker et al., 2009) of basalts from three locations in the lava field ranged from about 2.15 to 2.80 Ma.
