Mount St Helens. Colour-enhanced topographical image of Mount St Helens (MSH), Washington, USA. This prominent volcano is found in the Cascade Range, which stretches from British Columbia, Canada to Northern California, USA. MSH erupted on 18 May 1980, causing the upper 400 metres of the mountain to collapse, leaving behind a crater. In the background are Mount Adams (left) and Mount Hood (right). This image was obtained by combining shading and colour coding of topographic height with a perspective view. The data was acquired on the Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM, Space Shuttle Endeavour, February 2000).
