Select number 6 for Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

 

Prior to 1975, the forests east of central Bolivia’s Grande (Guapay) River were virtually untouched. By 1990 (left image) roads had been built and settlement had begun. Recent imagery shows that large tracts of forest have been converted to pastures and cropland.

Select number 2 for Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

 

Despite its tropical location, the upper slopes of this 19,340-foot volcano have been draped in glaciers for 12,000 years. Yet scientists predict that these ice fields will likely disappear within the next decade and a half, victims of a warming climate. The 1990 image at left shows a greater extent of snow and ice than the more current view at right.

Select number 3 for Columbia Glacier, Alaska.

 

The mouth of this glacier near Prince William Sound has retreated by more than six miles from its 1990 location (purple symbol) to today (red). In both images, floating ice is visible below the glacier. Although a variety of factors can affect glacial dynamics, a warming climate has hastened the retreat of glaciers worldwide.
