Egmont National Park

Egmont National Park in New Zealand is dominated by the extinct volcano of Mt. Taranaki. Since the area has a high rainfall rate and mild coastal climate there is a lush rainforest covering the foothills, changing to subalpine and alpine shrublands at high elevations. This is in stark contrast to the surrounding pasture farmlands. Mt. Taranaki was first named Mt. Egmont by Captain Cook. The simulated natural color ASTER image covers an area of 53.4 x 49.4 km, and was acquired on May 27, 2001. The image is centered at 39.3 degrees south latitude, 174 degrees east longitude.
