Alai Valley CORONA photography and DEM

This flight is over the Alai Valley in southernmost Kyrgyzstan in the area between the Tien Shan and the Pamir. We have much ongoing research in this area. The movie is of CORONA photography (carefully rectified by Stephen Holloway) draped on GTOPO30 1 km DEM. The flight starts in the westernmost Alai Valley in Tadjikistan and flies along the valley to the east, allowing us to examine the Trans Alai rangefront (where we have conducted much research in the last few years). The flight turns and comes back along the Kyzilsu River in the northern portion of the Alai Valley.
