The circular crater near the center of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top) is the largest maar of the Qal'eh Hasan Ali volcanic field in SE Iran. This maar, known as "Great Crater, " is 1.2 km wide and 200-300 m deep. It is one of 14 maars of late Quaternary age erupted through desert alluvium, granodioritic rocks, and Eocene volcanics in an area several hundred km away from the closest Quaternary volcanoes.
