The Hawaiian Islands
The Multiangle Imaging Spectro-Radiometer (MISR) picture of five Hawaiian islands was taken by the vertical scan system (nadir) of the device on June 3, 2000. This picture shows the islands Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Kahoolawe. Predominant Pacific Ocean breezes cause higher precipitation on the east side of the islands, resulting in a greater diversity of upwinds.
By slightly changing the viewing angles above the line of vision of the needle cam, the right part of the picture is more strongly influenced by the sunshine, making the sea appears lighter. The most westerly of the islands in this picture is Oahu. The MISR is one of several Earth observations tools on the Terra spacecraft launch in December 1999.
1 Awesome and Fiery Big Island Hawaii Volcano Pictures - Life in Hawaii
Buckets List - A trip to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park on Big Island, Hawaii! A regret after six years in Hawaii is that I never bothered to go to Big Island to see the best site in the Hawaiian Islands - the Volcano National Park.
I' m not really sorry, I've had so many different rides and opportunities to spend my free day on the islands that it just didn't seem like a top of my list. The next trip to the islands will definitely be one of my weekends!
Hawaii, Big Island
This sentinel-2A spacecraft photo shows the vulcanic scenery of the biggest of the Hawaiian archipelago's islands. Situated in the Pacific Ocean, the islands, avocets and small islands of Hawaii evolved from a hot spot in the Earth's surface that seeped through magnetism as the Pacific oceanic plates traveled north-west, leaving a trace of expanse.
This is the most south-eastern - and thus the youngest of the range - and volcanic in activity. Above and to the top of the mountain you can clearly see the Mauna Loa vulcano with its soft hillsides and more dark creeks. You can see the other live vulcano, K?lauea, smokin' near the center of the picture.
The two volcanoes are located in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. In the whole picture the dark and darker the younger the streams are covered with woods and meadows. This very rainy area is clouded by northeastern Tradewind, which is obstructed by the central sea mountain range, which also causes strong rain.
In the middle right side of the picture along the coastline we see a vapor trail where a stream of volcanic ash is flowing into the sea. From a crevice in a near-by sea, the volcanic ash seeps into the sea. In the vicinity you can also see the interruption of a street that has been blocked off by a stream of creeks.
The same picture, which can also be seen on the Earth from Space program, was taken by the Copernicus sentinel-2A spacecraft on October 27, 2016. Since 2015, sentinel-2A has been in space; its twins, sentinel-2B, are scheduled to be launched during the evening of March 6 to 7.
