  Title: Mt. Pinatubo Volcano - Post Eruption, Luzon, Philippines
  Description:
  Mt. Pinatubo, on the island of Luzon (15.0N, 120.5E) erupted
  catastrophically  in June 1991, probably the largest of the twentieth
  century.  Great rivers of  gray ash (mud flows) radiate in all directions
  from the newly formed caldera.  Within the caldera, a small lake can be
  seen.  Since the eruption, the local   environment has been impacted by mud
  flows and on a global scale, some of the  ash is expected to remain in the
  atmosphere for several more years.
