This SRTM frame shows a 30x30-kilometer (19x19 miles) area around Karamea Bight with a resolution of 25 meters (~80 ft). The color-coded elevation model is overlaid with the corresponding RADAR image to simultaneously present elevation and coverage information. The mountains of Kaikoura Range reach up to 2900 meters (~8800 ft) and then slope steeply down from 2600 meters (7900 ft) down to sea level. The color-coded elevation model is overlaid with the corresponding RADAR image to simultaniously present elevation and coverage information. Data and information for the New Zealand material was provided by Stephen McNeill and Dr. Stella Bellis, Landcare Research, New Zealand. All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are coordinated and/or provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.
