Caption: Mount Pinatubo. Satellite image of the lake in the summit caldera (volcanic crater) of Mount Pinatubo (summit height: 1485 metres) in the Philippines. It is an active volcano that erupted twice in 1991 to form this 2.5-kilometre-wide caldera. The large eruption ejected 10 cubic kilometres of rock and ash, and the subsequent collapse formed this caldera. The eruption killed hundreds and tens of thousands were displaced. A lake formed in the caldera, and was steadily increasing in depth until, in September 2001, a few months after this image was taken by the Ikonos satellite on 6 March 2001, about a quarter of the lake was drained. to avoid collapse of the caldera wall and disastrous flooding. Clouds (white) are seen at lower right.
