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. Image courtesy of
NASA’s MODIS Land Rapid Response Team.
