Description ISS005-E-9984 (17 August 2002) --- This digital still photograph, taken from the International Space Station (ISS) during its fifth staffing, depicts both agriculture and the petroleum industry, which compete for land use near Denver City, Texas. The photo was recently released by the Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory at Johnson Space Center. The area is southwest of Lubbock near the New Mexico border. According to analysts studying the station imagery, the economy of this region is almost completely dependent on its underground resources of petroleum and water. Both resources result in distinctive land use patterns visible from space. Historically this area has produced vast quantities of oil and gas since development began in the 1930s. A fine, light-colored grid of roads and pipelines connect well sites over this portion of the Wasson Oil Field, one of the state?s most productive. Since the 1940s, agricultural land use has shifted from grazing to irrigated cultivation of cotton, sorghum, wheat, hay, and corn. The water supply is drawn from wells tapping the vast Ogallala Aquifer. Note the large, circular center-pivot irrigation systems in the lower corners of the image. The largest is nearly a mile in diameter.

Description ISS011-E-08410 (9 June 2005) --- Las Cruces, New Mexico is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 11 crewmember on the International Space Station. The city of Las Cruces is located within the Rio Grande Rift, a large geological feature that extends from Colorado southward into Mexico. According to NASA geologists, rifting usually heralds the breakup of continental landmasses, such as the separation of South America and Africa to form the southern Atlantic Ocean during the Mesozoic Era. The Rift is marked by a series of depressions (known as graben) caused by the subsidence of crustal blocks between parallel faults as the continental crust is pulled apart by tectonic forces. These graben are frequently marked by uplifted rocks along bounding faults ? the striking Organ Mountains to the east of Las Cruces are one such uplifted fault block. While separation of the continental crust is no longer occurring, the Rio Grande Rift is still considered active as evidenced by frequent low-intensity earthquakes and hot springs to the north of Las Cruces. The modern city of Las Cruces ? the seat of Do?a Ana County and home to New Mexico State University ? is undergoing rapid urban expansion due to influx of new residents attracted to the climate and landscape. The current urban area (gray to white region at image center) contrasts sharply with agricultural lands (dark green and grey brown) located along the Rio Grande River and the surrounding desert valley floor to the northeast and southwest (brown, blue gray and tan areas).

Description ISS012-E-05172 (14 October 2005) --- Navajo Mountain, Utah is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 12 crewmember on the international space station. According to scientists, the Colorado Plateau of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah is characterized by mostly flat-lying sedimentary layers that record paleoclimate extremes ranging from oceans to widespread deserts over the last 1.8 billion years. Navajo Mountain is formed by a dome-shaped body of igneous rock (called a laccolith by geologists), one of several in southeast Utah that intrude and uplift the surrounding sedimentary layers of the Plateau. This oblique image highlights Navajo Mountain in the center of the image, surrounded by light red-brown Navajo Sandstone (also visible in canyons at bottom of image). Scientists believe the peak of Navajo Mountain, at approximately 3148 meters (10,388 feet) elevation, is comprised of uplifted Dakota Sandstone deposited during the Cretaceous Period. The establishment of Rainbow Bridge National Monument (1910), and the filling of Glen Canyon by Lake Powell in 1963 (upper right), have facilitated tourism and aesthetic appreciation of this previously remote region. Access to Navajo Mountain is still regulated by the sovereign Navajo Nation, and the process of permitting is required to hike in the region.

Description ISS013-E-26488 (25 May 2006) --- Yates Oilfield, west Texas is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 13 crewmember on the International Space Station. The Permian Basin of west Texas and southeastern New Mexico is one of the most productive petroleum provinces of North America. The Basin is a large depression in the Precambrian bedrock surface along the southern edge of the North American craton, or oldest bedrock core of the continent. The Yates Oil Field is marked in this image by numerous white well locations and petroleum infrastructure dotting the layered sedimentary rocks of the Permian Basin. The Pecos River bed borders the oil field to the east-northeast. The Yates Field started petroleum production in 1926, and by 1995 had produced over 2 billion barrels of oil.

Description JSC2000E02634 --- This scene shows an area near White Sands, New Mexico, (covering approximately 50 km x 150 km 30x90 miles). JSC2000E02636 is an interferogram of the area depicted in this RADAR image (E02634). The individual phase values appear as colored rings in the E02636 image. The steeper the slopes, the closer the fringes. So, topography can already be seen directly in the interferogram. The gray values in the RADAR image represent the strength of the reflected RADAR signal. The stronger the backscatter towards the antenna, the brighter the image. The black area in the upper part of the images is a lake (reservoir). It is black because smooth water surfaces reflect RADAR like a mirror. No backscatter is returned towards the antennas onboard the shuttle. Note: All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.

Description JSC2000-E-02639 (12 February 2000) --- This high resolution image shows the area which includes Las Cruces, New Mexico, indicated as Image 2 on the strip in JSC2000-E-2638. The speckled effect, inherent in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery, hinders the evaluation of details, both structural and radiometric, according to scientists analyzing this imagery. See JSC2000-E-02640 for the "after" image following application of advanced methods for information extraction. All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.

Description JSC2000-E-02642 (12 February 2000) --- This image showing some of New Mexico's variegated terrain is included in this series of data from the X-SAR experiment to illustrate special processing for enabling classification of land structures. The area in this frame is labeled as Image 6 on the strip (JSC2000-E-02638). Classification of land structures like those in JSC2000-E-2641 is a difficult task, scientists say, due to speckle process and the influence of topography. The same image "intensity" is recorded for irrigated agriculture fields or the slopes of the mountains. The fusion of information on backscatter and texture allows the separation of the relevant image regions. All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.
