The planet is undergoing drastic change with regards to the climate. The ice caps are melting, hurricanes and storms are becoming more intense, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are a more frequent occurrence, extreme droughts are eliminating whole water sources—the list goes on and on.

Now, many organizations and institutions are keeping an eye on what’s going on in the world climate-wise, and NASA is one of the biggest players out there. Over the years, NASA has been watching over thousands of locations around the globe using its space tech, looking for signs of global climate change.

For this purpose, it launched the Images Of Change website where it documents the before-and-afters of various places on Earth, highlighting melting glaciers, results of wildfires, deforestation, extreme droughts, and a number of other phenomena.
