Image Caption:
As a general rule, lava from volcanoes on continents and in is-
land arcs tend to be more viscous, resulting in more explosive
eruptions. Evidence of this is seen in the Valles Caldera, New
Mexico, which formed as a result of a tremendous explosion. The
photograph was taken on 06 December 1988 from an altitude of 240
n.mi. (444 km) using a Hasselblad camera equipped with a 250 mm
lens and color IR film. (Photo ID: S27-44- 062).
