Caption: Kilauea volcano. Three dimensional perspective view of Kilauea volcano, derived from radar interferometry. The colours represent height, with contours spaced at 20 metre intervals. The area covered by this image is about 4 kilometres wide by 12 kilometres deep, with an overall altitude range of 500 metres. The data for this image were derived from the interferometric combination of two X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (X-SAR) images; the first taken on 13 April 1994 during Shuttle Mission STS-59, the second on 4 October 1994 during Shuttle Mission STS-68. X-SAR is part of the Shuttle Imaging Radar SIR-C package carried on both of the above missions.
