Image Caption:
STS044-82-090, STS044-82-094: KYUSHU, JAPAN, AND UNZEN VOLCANO
These two frames show a volcanic plume from the summit of Unzen,
Kyushu, which erupted catastrophically in May and June 1991. The
oblique photos feature on the east and southeast slopes of the
volcano the domes and ash flow deposits from this summer's erup-
tion. Lava dome buildup continues, with periodic partial col-
lapses and resultant pyroclastic flows. STS044-82-094 also shows
the volcanic complex of Aso, to the east of Unzen. Aso was ac-
tive in early 1991.
