NASA provides a bird’s eye view that shows how climate change and increased population has changed some geographic features in Texas.  

State Impact Texas went through the images, and created seven side-by-side comparisons.  One of the images is Lake Meredith, 35 miles north of Amarillo.  The picture on the right shows Lake Meredith at a record low of 26.41 feet after the 2011 drought. The bright green portions indicate areas of healthy vegetation growth.

The rest of the images can be found at State Impact Texas.
