    The Aral Sea, was once the fourth largest in the world.
    "Although irrigation made the desert bloom, it devastated the Aral Sea. This series of images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite documents the changes. At the start of the series in 2000, the lake was already a fraction of its 1960 extent (black line). The Northern Aral Sea (sometimes called the Small Aral Sea) had separated from the Southern (Large) Aral Sea. The Southern Aral Sea had split into eastern and western lobes that remained tenuously connected at both ends.
    By 2001, the southern connection had been severed, and the shallower eastern part retreated rapidly over the next several years. Especially large retreats in the eastern lobe of the Southern Sea appear to have occurred between 2005 and 2009, when drought limited and then cut off the flow of the Amu Darya. Water levels then fluctuated annually between 2009 and 2014 in alternately dry and wet years. Dry conditions in 2014 caused the Southern Sea’s eastern lobe to completely dry up for the first time in modern times."

    The Wondrous Water Towers of New York City by  Pop Chart Lab. Big pic!
    "This visual compendium arrays a curated selection of the city skyline’s unsung signatures: its wondrous water towers. From the rainbow-tiled tower in DUMBO to the twin-tank setup in Midtown East to the lime-tinged filtration-point in Richmond Hill, Queens, over two dozen industrial artifacts have been richly hand-illustrated here, highlighting the heterogeneity of these high-rising hydro-structures. (Fun fact: Though many of these towers may look like antiques, this time-tested technology has yet to be topped, and still provides precious H20 to most buildings in the city six stories or taller.)"

    Mark Graham's map reveals that northwestern Europe and Korea are ahead of the pack when it comes to internet penetration, while India, Indonesia and much of Africa lag behind. Internet Population and Penetration. Big pic!
    "The distortion in the map paints a revealing picture about human activity on the Internet. China is now home to the world’s largest Internet population at over half a billion. The United States, India, and Japan then follow as the next most populous nations of Internet users.
    Looking at the largest Internet countries, we see two important trends.
    First, the rise of Asia as the main contributor to the world’s Internet population; 42% of the world’s Internet users live in Asia, and China, India, and Japan alone host more Internet users than Europe and North America combined.
    Second, few of the world’s largest Internet countries fall into the top category (>80%) of Internet penetration (and indeed India falls into the lowest category, at <20% penetration). In other words, in all of the world’s largest Internet nations, there is still substantial room for growth."
