Figure 14.—Glacier ice and snow on Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Africa, a 5,895-m high volcano. The image was acquired on 17 February 1993, by the Thematic Mapper on the Landsat-5 satellite and was draped over a digital elevation model to give an enhanced sense of the three-dimensional shape of the mountain.
