CaptionsSTS050-52-26 Mount Pinatubo
This oblique view to the west provides context for the area affected
by Pinatubo's eruption. The Subic Bay Naval Base is at 1, Clark
Airforce Base at 2. Every river system draining the mountain is now a
conduit for mudflows to travel into the populated, low- lying areas.
Mt. Pinatubo, on the island of Luzon (15.0N, 120.5E) erupted catastrophically in June 1991, probably the largest of the twentieth century. Great rivers of gray ash (mud flows) radiate in all directions from the newly formed caldera. Within the caldera, a small lake can be seen. Since the eruption, the local environment has been impacted by mud flows and on a global scale, some of the ash is expected to remain in the atmosphere for several more years.
