Deforestation of the rainforest is visible in Santa Cruz, Bolivia – immediately adjacent to untouched tracts of forest. Deforestation in the country has primarily been driven by the expansion of mechanized agriculture and cattle ranching. This Overview highlights the country’s struggle to expand food production in order to meet the needs of its growing population and the sacrificial destruction of its forests that has taken place to do so. While deforestation rates are now relatively stable at about 494,000 acres a year, it is estimated that Bolivia lost 4.5 million acres of forests from 2000 to 2010.

The Mount Whaleback Iron Ore Mine is located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. 98% of mined iron ore is used to make steel, and it is thus a major component in the construction of buildings, automobiles, and appliances such as refrigerators.

Seen here during its construction, the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah, Nevada, USA now powers approximately 75,000 homes during peak electricity periods. The facility uses 17,500 heliostat mirrors to collect and focus the sun’s thermal energy in order to heat molten salt flowing through a 525-foot-tall (160-meter) solar power tower at its center. The molten salt then flows from the tower down to a storage tank, where it is used to produce steam and generate electricity. For a sense of scale, see the commercial airplane flying over the complex in the lower left corner.

Middelgrunden is an offshore wind farm located 2.2 miles (3.5 kilometers) from Copenhagen, Denmark in the Oresund –the strait that forms the border of Denmark and Sweden. The farm’s 20 turbines deliver approximately 4% of the power for Copenhagen. When wind blows against the blades of a wind turbine, they slowly rotate. The blades are connected to a drive shaft on the top of the turbine that turns a generator, thereby generating electricity that is carried through underground cables to each site’s substation. The turbines operate independently of one another, and each has an internal computer that constantly calculates wind speed and direction. The top of the turbine and its blades can rotate a full 360 degrees, and change the pitch of the blades to always face into the wind and optimize position for energy creation.

Residential development is seen in Boca Raton, Florida, USA. Because many cities in the state contain master-planned communities, often built on top of waterways in the latter half of the twentieth century, there are a number of intricate designs that are visible from the Overview perspective. Boca Raton is home to roughly 91,000 residents.

Mont Saint-Michel is a commune built 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) off the coast of Normandy, France. Over the past 600 years, the island has functioned as a prominent monastery accessible to pilgrims only during low tide, a French fortification that withstood English attacks during the Hundred Years’ War, and a prison.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a 1.7-mile-long (2.7-kilometer) suspension bridge in San Francisco, California, USA that spans the Golden Gate Strait – the channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The bridge’s signature color, known as ‘international orange’, was selected to complement its natural surroundings and enhance its visibility in fog.

Cargo ships and tankers – some weighing up to 300,000 tonnes – wait outside the entry to the Port of Singapore. The facility is the world’s second-busiest port in terms of total tonnage, shipping a fifth of the world’s cargo containers and half of the world’s annual supply of crude oil.

Aspen Snowmass is one of four recreational areas at the Aspen winter resort complex in Colorado, USA. This particular mountain has a total skiable area of 1,010 acres, with its longest run extending 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers) down the mountain.

The shipbreaking yards on the Arabian Sea in Alang, India account for approximately half of all ships salvaged around the world. Ships are sold to ship breaking companies here, brought to the shore at high tide, and are purposefully beached as the water recedes. Once the ships are anchored to the beach, they are taken apart by a massive force of migrant laborers. Human rights advocates have called attention to the abysmal conditions that these workers face on a daily basis in the yards amid explosions, perilous machinery, and toxic fumes.

Every day, this facility in Fresno, California, USA receives 71 million gallons of wastewater that is routed to the facility through 1,500 miles of sewer lines. During the purification process, the wastewater is pumped into the large pools seen in this Overview. Here, any material that was not removed during earlier screening processes will either float to the surface or settle at the bottom of the basins.

Dendritic drainage systems are seen around the Shadegan Lagoon by Musa Bay in Iran. The word ‘dendritic’ refers to the pools’ resemblance to the branches of a tree, and this pattern develops when streams move across relatively flat and uniform rocks, or over a surface that resists erosion.
