Caption

Igneous rock landscape, Namibia, satellite image. North is at top. The colours of the landscape have been enhanced with a GeoVue spectral transform of the data. Eroded mountain features are prominent (one at centre), including ridges of harder rocks that have resisted erosion. This is the 2,100- million-year-old Kunene Igneous Complex of Angola and northern Namibia. It formed as an intrusion of molten rock (magma) from below the Earth's crust. This 50-kilometre-wide image was taken on 23 June 1991 with the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor on a NASA Landsat satellite.
