Karthala Volcano (242K image)
Mapping poorly studied and remote volcanoes will be made much easier with data from ASTER and MISR on the EOS AM-1 platform. We can start this process using multispectral data from the SPOT spacecraft, which provides 20 m/pixel resolution. This slide shows the north rift zone of Karthala volcano, which is in the Grand Comoro Islands, which are in the Indian Ocean between Africa and Madagascar. Notice all of the cinder cones along the rift zone.
