 4/14/2017  Sarychev Peak  Matua Island, Russia  48.090798, 153.199718  Sarychev Peak is located on Matua Island in the Kuril Islands of Russia. When the volcano erupted June on 11, 2009, the expulsion of debris caused significant interruption with air traffic between east Asia and North America. The eruption was also so great that astronauts aboard the International Space Station were able to photograph the plumes of ash and smoke rising from its cone as the force of its shock waves dispersed all clouds out of the line of sight.

The Libyan government enacted a plan in the 1970’s to enable agricultural cultivation in the desert by extracting water from the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System, a non-renewable source of fossil water located beneath the surface. Because the area receives only one inch of rain per year, the acquirer is now nearly dried up.  Source imagery: DigitalGlobe
