January 4th, 2011 Category: Image of the day, Volcanoes

USA - December 26th, 2010

The island of Hawaii occupies virtually all of this thumbnail image, while several other of the Hawaiian Islands can be observed in the full version.

The island shows terrain of mixed colors, mainly shades of green and brown. The green areas indicate forests and vegetation, while the brown areas are volcanic. The dark brown area in the center of the island is the Mauna Loa volcano. The darkest brown areas are mostly lava flows on the volcano’s relatively shallow slopes.
