Humans have had a greater impact on forests than on other land ecosystems. This interactive feature uses NASA satellite images taken between 1984 and 2000 to demonstrate just how much of a once densely forested region in Bolivia has been cleared for commercial purposes. Users can view the images as an animation, or click on individual images taken every two years to see the stages of the deforestation. ... Full description.

This resource provides a graph of monthly average carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in ppmv (part per million by volume) versus time in years (1958 to 2000) at the Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii. This is a classic Earth science figure that illustrates the "breathing of the planet." The overall upward trend in CO2 concentrations since the 1950's is shown. The yearly cycle of C02 is shown in the yearly ... Full description.
