Caption: MacDonnell Mountains, Australia, satellite image. This is a view of part of the MacDonnell Mountains in Australia's arid centre. The mountains rise to 1000-1500 metres. Erosion of the rock has revealed the original banding of the rock layers (strata) that were crumpled upwards by tectonic forces to form these mountains. Eroded valleys line the side of the mountain ridges that form large loops and whorls in this landscape. Sand dunes (yellow) are seen in the bottom right corner. Image acquired in visible and infrared wavelengths on 1 August 2000 by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor on NASA's Landsat 7 satellite.
