Timelapse photography reveals the tide-like motions of fog that filled the Grand Canyon last week. This unusual meteorological condition was created by a temperature inversion. Usually air near the ground is warmest and the atmosphere cools as the altitude increases. But occasionally a mass of warm air will trap a layer of cooler air beneath it. In the case of the Grand Canyon, cool foggy air was capped by a warmer air mass, resulting in a sea of fog. Depending on the conditions, temperature inversions can create other distinctive weather patterns like cloud streets or even supercell thunderstorms. (Video credit: Vox; via Flow Visualization)

Sometimes all you need is a chance to see things from a new perspective. // this tripod headstand was definitely a new perspective for me. I’m so thankful for this challenge because it’s opened me up to try poses that I wouldn’t have otherwise. The growth and potential I’m seeing in myself are extremely encouraging. And this is just the beginning. #timelapse #justbepresent @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga @aloyoga

Watch: How Europe is greener now than 100 years ago

Within the last 100 years, Europe has experienced two World Wars, the end of communism, the emergence of the European Union and a series of other transformative political and economic developments. A team of scientists has now been able to visualize the impact of historical events in maps that show the growth and decline of settlements, forests and croplands.

The map, shown above, is the result of a research project led by Dutch scholar Richard Fuchs from the University of Wageningen. Besides regional political and economic trends, Europe’s landscape was shaped by several larger developments of the 20th century, according to Fuchs.

The following maps preview some of the affected regions which we will explain and show in detail throughout this post.
