Caption: False-colour infrared image of Mount Vesuvius and its surroundings, made by an aircraft-mounted Thermal Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS). The crater of Vesuvius is clearly seen just left of centre. Purple areas show relatively recent deposits of volcanic ash, whilst older lava flows show as pink and light blue. Green areas denote vegetation. The brown region at the top of the frame shows the outskirts of nearby Naples. The collection of pinkish dots directly south of the crater show the location of Pompeii. The snaking black line near the bottom of the frame is a river, flowing toward the sea at bottom left.
