Caption: Yaku volcanoes. Infrared satellite image of the Yaku volcanoes (at centre) on the island of Kyushu, Japan. In the infrared range green vegetation is red, buildings and bare rock are light blue, water is black and clouds are white. The craters of the volcanoes are largely filled with water. Several towns have been built in the valleys surrounding the volcanoes. Japan has some 200 volcanoes of which about 50 are still active. The volcanoes and earthquakes which frequently affect Japan, are caused because the islands are slowly moving away from the Asian mainland. Image taken by the SPOT-1 satellite in August.
