Java, Indonesia - November 9th, 2009

Volcanic peaks tower above the terrain of Java, Indonesia, in this orthorectified image. The view reaches from the north coast to the south coast of the island. Visible on the north shores in the upper right corner is the city of Semarang, while the city of Yogyakarta can be seen near the south coast towards the bottom.

Three volcanoes are situated in a vertical line between the two cities. These are, from north to south, Mount Ungaran, a deeply eroded stratovolcano, Mount Merbabu, a dormant stratovolcano, and Mount Merapi, a conical volcano and the most active in Indonesia.

To the west, near the image center, are the conical peaks of two stratovolcanoes: Mount Sundoro (also spelled Sindoro) , above, and Mount Sumbing, below.

Indonesia - August 31st, 2009

Many volcanic peaks are visible in this orthorectified image of the island of Java, Indonesia, stretching from the city of Semarang on the north coast (top right) to the city of Yogyakarta on the south coast (bottom, right of center).

Three volcanoes seem to queue up on a line between the two cities: (from top to bottom) Mount Ungaran, a deeply eroded stratovolcano, Mount Merbabu, a dormant stratovolcano, and Mount Merapi, a conical volcano. The latter is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548.

Moving westward, two other striking conical peaks ringed by white populated areas rise up from the Javanese landscape: (from top to bottom) Mount Sundoro (also spelled Sindoro) and Mount Sumbing, both active stratovolcanoes.
