Slide 21: This is a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) of the Virunga Volcanoes. Karisimbi in in the center, Mikeno to left and Muhabura in the far distance. This model shows clearly some of the altitudinal belts within the parklands.  The next slide shows an actual photo of the vertical profile of Mount Karisimbi from the same direction as the DEM.  The view is from the southwest along the chain looking toward the east-northeast.
