Caption: Mount Ararat. Satellite image of a plateau at an altitude of 4720 metres on Mount Ararat, Turkey. The summit (not seen) is at an elevation of 5165 metres. This area, only a few kilometres across, consists of snow and ice (white) and bare ground (brown). This area is the north-western part of the mountain's Western Plateau. Mount Ararat is a snow-capped dormant volcano. It is said to be where Noah's Ark came to rest after the enormous flood that is described in the Judeo-Christian bible. Image taken by the Ikonos satellite on 13 September 2000.
