NASA has released a new series of images that show the remarkable way the world has changed over the last 30 years. The agency has long been using satellite-based imagery and temperature data to study climate change and has built up quite the repertoire of compelling visual evidence.
The images show incredible changes to our planet’s landscapes, from flooding rivers to vanishing lakes, shrinking sea ice to newly created islands. We can even see the dramatic effects of urban expansion and what light pollution looks like from space.
As NASA explains: “Our planet is constantly changing, and we use the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of Earth, improve lives, and safeguard our future.”
