Zuni-Bandera Volcanic Field - Satellite Image

This is a satellite image of the Zuni-Bandera volcanic field. The image is oriented north-south, and is about 100 km (60 miles) along the north-south axis.  The lava flows in this image are represented by black, grey, or reddish brown color, and cover much of the central and lower left part of the image. The age of the lava flows can be roughly estimated by the color, with the blacker flows being younger than the redder ones. The McCarties and Bandera flows, around 3,000 and 10,000 yrs old, respectively, account for much of the black color on the map. Other features that can be seen are the town of Grants, shown mainly in blues and greens, and the topographic feature, Zuni Canyon. Highway 40 can be seen as a dark blue line just south of Grants.
