Several islands and volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands Archipelago are visible in detail. The radar makes it possible to closely observe the volcanoes’ caldera and steep slopes.

Isabela Island, the largest of the group, is in the center. In the full image, from top to bottom, the island’s volcanoes are Wolf, Darwin, Alcedo, Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul.

Fernandina Island and its single volcano, La Cumbre, are to the left of Isabela.

To the right, there is the western end of Santiago Island.
