Environment Settings Raster Analysis Cell Size

I need some kind of "official statement" for this case:

I have a raster with a cell size of 1x1 and one with the cell size of 10x10 and need them to be aligend with each other.

This worked for me so far, but i need to understand what has happend to align them:


I used the Extract by Mask Tool (ArcGIS License type Basic) like this:

Input:                         1x1 raster

feature mask data:   10x10 raster

Environment Settings -> Raster Analysis -> Cell Size:  Maximum of Inputs


my result is a raster with the values of the 1x1 raster but with the extent and cell size of my 10x10 raster (so they are aligend?).


The help says about the Cell Size that if you specify a finer cell size the tool will interpolate with the nearest neighbor technique, but in my case I had a coarser cell size and the cells were not aligend before.

With witch technique were the cells of my new raster populated?


Thanks in advance!
