  • Spring

    As spring comes, snow in the Northern Hemisphere recedes, and forests in the eastern part of South America get heavier rains, turning most of the continent to a rich green color. Even when much of the Southern Hemisphere is lush, Australia remains dry through spring and most of the year.

  • Summer

    Snowlines in Asia, Alaska and western Canada have almost completely receded in summer. The band of green on the African continent moves north, though the Sahara Desert remains dry--as it does throughout the year.
