Composite image of Cleveland Volcano from the Landsat-8 satellite on June 8, 2013. Thermal infrared data are overlain onto a visible wavelength image, and show the extent of the lava flow from eruptive activity in early May, 2013. Temperature values are given in degrees Kelvin, and range from 303-312 K (86-102 F), and the flow extends for about 715 m downhill (2350 ft). The summit of Cleveland is covered by dark ash deposits, and is surrounded by a low cloud deck.
