Great Dyke, Zimbabwe

 (JPG) Great Dyke, Zimbabwe (3,081,363 bytes) ( 2616 x 4146 )
The Great Dyke in the southern Zimbabwe Craton is one of the most remarkable intrusive bodies in the world, formed when molten rock forced its way into existing rock formations, which later eroded. The Dyke, with a width of 3-12 km, extends about 530 km across Zimbabwe. The Dyke is extremely rich in platinum and chromium deposits, that support the Zimbabwe economy. This simulated natural color image covers an area of 62.2 x 39.2 km, and is located at 20.3 degrees South latitude, 29.7 degrees East longitude. The scene was acquired 29 August 2000.
