At the NASA Earth Observatory there’s a new image (small version above) of the Antarctic volcano Mount Erebus, captured by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite. The Earth Observatory team have paired this true-colour image with another thermal image showing the volcano’s lava lake, and provided their usual detailed and highly informative caption.
