El Hierro is a volcanic island, the smallest of the Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean near Africa. It is less than 50 kilometres across. The north-western side of the island is dominated by the cliffs and lowlands of the El Golfo valley, some 10 kilometres across, formed by ancient landslides. Image data obtained in March 2007 by the Thematic Mapper (TM) instruments on the Landsat 4 and Landsat 5 satellites.
