Timelapse volcanoes in Google’s Earth Engine

10 May

With the marvels of technology and the generosity of Google and NASA, we can now sit back and watch the back catalogue of volcanic eruptions using the magnificent Google Earth Timelapse of Landsat images. Here are just a few that I have picked out..

Enjoy, and do send more suggestions!
