How the Earth’s ice and vegetation cycle occurs seasonally through each year.
The earth goes through many changes during the year during each season. John Nelson, a data visualizer at IDV Solutions, illustrated two animated GIFs titled “A Breathing Earth” to show the transformation of Earth as seen from the outer space. It was designed by combining all the photographs taken by satellites each month over a year. The GIF almost makes it look as if the earth is breathing, or pulsing, each time the snow starts covering the Earth during cold seasons and when the snow retreats after melting during warm seasons.
