Satellite image of the study region in the Karakoram
Satellite image, acquired by Landsat in 2004, of the central Karakoram. Frank Paul produced animated image sequences for the four regions inside the yellow rectangles: Baltoro (1), Panmah (2), Skamri–Sarpo Laggo (3), and Shaksgam (4). The black square in the inset shows the location of the study region in the Karakoram mountain range (map taken from Google Earth). The image centre is at 36 N, and 76.3 E. The black lines on the left of the image are related to an instrument failure on Landsat in 2003.
