Space Shuttle imaging radar (SIR-C) image of Merapi volcano, Indonesia. This color composite is a combination of radar data obtained at different wavelengths and polarizations (red = 24 cm, HH-polarization; green = 24 cm, HV-polarization; blue = 5.6 cm, HV-polarization). It is likely that the bright dark streaks to the south of the volcano are lahar deposits. The direction of illumination is from the top of the image, which has produced fore-shortening of the summit of the volcano, giving the impression that it is steeper on one side than the other. These data were obtained on October 4th 1994. SIR-C Data Take 175.5 obtained on October 10th, 1994, at an incidence angle of 44 degrees.
