Caption: False-colour infrared image of the island Isola Vulcano, photographed by an aircraft-mounted Thermal Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS). Isola Vulcano is located about 25km north of the island of Sicily. To the left (west) of centre is a large volcanic crater, after which the island is named. The various colours represent different thermal emissivity of the surface material. The pink areas around the crater are volcanic ash. The green areas are vegetation, whilst cloud cover shows as reddish-brown. To the west of the volcano is the town of Porto Levante. This image was made from an altitude of 3,050 metres.
