Indonesia - February 9th, 2012

This orthorectified wide-swath ASAR image shows several islands in Indonesia: (from left to right) Java (mainly East Java), Bali and Lombok. Also visible at the top are Madura (left) and Saubi (right).

East Java is a province of Indonesia. It is located on the eastern part of the island of Java and includes neighboring Madura and islands to its east (the Kangean and Sapudi groups) and to its north (Bawean and the Masalembu Islands). The provincial capital is Surabaya, the second largest city in Indonesia and a major industrial center and port.

Many volcanic peaks can be seen on the islands. One of the most prominent is Mount Rinjani, on Lombok, visible near the right edge. This active volcano on Lombok rises to 3726 m, making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia. On the top of the volcano is a 6 km by 8.5 km caldera, partially filled by Segara Anak (Child of the Sea) lake. This lake is approximately 2000 metres above sea level and estimated at 200 metres deep.

Indonesia - December 11th, 2011

This orthorectified wide-swath ASAR image focuses on Bali, an Indonesian island located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west (left edge) and Lombok to the east (right edge).

Of particular note on the islands are many volcanic peaks. One of the most prominent is Mount Rinjani, an active volcano on Lombok. It rises to 3726 m, making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia. On the top of the volcano is a 6 km by 8.5 km caldera, which is filled partially by the crater lake known as Segara Anak (Child of the Sea). This lake is approximately 2000 metres above sea level and estimated at 200 metres deep.

Visible at the top edge in the upper right quadrant is Saubi, one of the islands of the Kangean Archipelago. Administratively, the island is located in East Java, Indonesia. Multiple parallel rows of semicircular ripples can be seen spreading northwards from Bali and Lombok towards Saubi.
