Timelapse Imagery of How the World Has Changed

This morning Google, NASA, USGS, and TIME released new timelapse imagery that depicts how the Earth's surface has changed over the last 25 to 30 years. Using the new TIME Timelapse powered by Google you can see how shorelines have changed, cities have grown, and glaciers have shrunk. Start out with some the featured imagery on the homepage then search for other places around the world. The first place I searched for was Cape Cod.

Applications for Education
TIME Timelapse powered by Google could be a good resource for students studying the effects of erosion and climate change on the Earth. Combine the use of this imagery with historical imagery in Google Earth to give students even more perspective on the changes to the Earth's surface over time.
