Satellite Photos of the Athabasca Oil Sands

Nasa’s Earth Observatory today posted this image showing the expansion of the Athabasca Oil Sands development from 1984 to present.  Note, the scale on these images are 1 cm:4 km, keeping that in mind you can gauge how huge the operations really are.

The page also provides a full page of information, and a video slideshow of every year since ’84.
