The winter dry season in the Philippines reveals the full extent of
the mudflows (lahars) surrounding Mt. Pinatubo. Light tan parts of the
flows are dried mud deposits, which now have claimed hundreds of
square kilometers of formerly rich farm lands. Darker channels in the
flows (seen especially well in the Bucao River on the northwest side
of the mountain) are stream channels within the mud-filled drainages.
Straight sections of rivers are regions where the mudflows have been
channeled by earthen dikes. Most of last year's damage was along the
eastern drainages. The largest floods were the big mud deposits south
of Clark AFB, where over 50 sq. km were covered in debris, including
some small villages and valuable cropland. This photograph will be
used as a 1995 "baseline" against which the new mudflows occuring
during the summer monsoon season can be measured.
