Yarará confined disposal facility on the edge of the Dock Sud petrochemical dock in Buenos Aires, Argentina; note in particular the activities of the boats and shipping containers to the left, contrasted with the slow growth through agglomeration of the disposal facility to the right; in later years note the small black stream slipping through the containment levee in the southern cell of the facility; the Yarará contains incredibly toxic sediments dredged from the Riachuelo just to the west and that black stream is likely a highly contaminated stew pouring into the Rio de la Plata estuary and affecting coastal communities; Animation of landscape change over 12 years time, made in Adobe Photoshop using Google Earth Imagery.
