This animation compares two images of southern Spain’s Almería province, both captured by Landsat satellites in 1984 and 2011. The white area, known as the ‘Mar de plastico’ (sea of plastic), is covered with greenhouses. Tens of thousands of immigrants flock to the region in search of economic opportunities.
