Sandstone sculpted by water and wind erosion is seen in a slot canyon, one of hundreds that surround Lake Powell near Page, Arizona, May 26, 2015. Lake Powell on the Colorado River provides water for Nevada, Arizona and California. A severe drought in recent years, combined with withdrawals that many believe are not sustainable, has reduced its levels to only about 42 percent of its capacity.

John Tesvich (standing) speaks to a presenter during a public meeting for Plaquemines Parish by the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana, Integrated Planning Team, in Belle Chasse, Louisiana December 12, 2006. With the erosion of wetlands and barrier islands over the years, there was little to stop Hurricane Katrina before it hit with brute force. And because wind and flooding damage was so extensive, destroying much of New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, money for rebuilding has been slow to come. Picture taken December 12, 2006.

Virgin Amazon jungle is seen in this aerial photo taken over Mato Grosso State, one of the Brazilian states of greatest deforestation, May 18, 2005, the day the Environment Ministry announced that land clearing had increased in 2004. One year after President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva announced a plan of action against the destruction of the Amazon jungle, environmentalists say he has done more to promote dams, roads and farming than halt destruction of the world's largest rainforest, home to up to 30 percent of the world's plant and animal species.

A stream winds through a strip of once virgin Amazon rainforest destroyed by loggers, in Mato Grosso State, one of the Brazilian states of greatest deforestation, May 18, 2005. The Brazilian government announced the latest data on deforestation of the Amazon Basin, with a total of 26,130 square km (10,089 square miles) of rainforest destroyed, equivalent to more than nine football fields every minute, during the 12-month period ending in August, 2004. The total is the highest recorded during the government of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in spite of his administration's announced efforts to contain the destruction.

The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), a part of the Defense Department that usually makes maps and takes images of Earth for intelligence, military and humanitarian purposes, used pictures made by a NASA satellite orbitting Mars to track down what could be the doomed polar lander. NIMA gave NASA an unclassified report that says "NIMA believes it has located the Mars Polar Lander," the mapping agency said in a statement. The layered terrains of the polar regions of Mars are among the most exotic planetary landscapes in our Solar System. The layers exposed in the south polar residual cap, vividly shown in the top view, are thought to contain detailed records of Mars' climate history over the last 100 million years or so. The bottom picture shows complex erosional patterns that have developed on the south polar cap, perhaps by a combination of sublimation, wind erosion, and ground-collapse. These images were acquired by the Mars Orbiter Camera aboard the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft during the southern spring season in October 1999.
