Indonesia - November 8th, 2011

This orthorectified wide-swath ASAR image shows central Java, in Indonesia. Several volcanic peaks can be seen running along the length of the island. Java is almost entirely of volcanic origin; it contains thirty-eight mountains forming an east-west spine which have at one time or another been active volcanoes.

Of particular note in this image is Mount Muria, a dormant volcano on the north coast of the island. The volcano is located in the center of the Muria peninsula, which juts northward into the Java Sea on the north coast of Central Java, Indonesia, east of Semarang. Mount Muria is 1602 meters high.
