Indonesia - June 23rd, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image focuses on the Gulf of Tomini, a gulf near the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is bounded on its north and west sides by the Minahassa Peninsula and on the south side by the East Peninsula, Sulawesi.

The Togian Islands, formed by volcanic activity, sit in the centre of the gulf. To the east it is open to the Molucca Sea. The terrain of the surrounding peninsulas is quite moutainous.
