    As autumn takes hold over the northern hemisphere, fall colors begin to creep across the forests of Hokkaido, Japan. Here on the Konsen Plateau, a carefully managed system of shelterbelt forests grows in a grid with openings about 3 km (2 mi) across. Winter is harsh in northern Japan, and the trees will slow the winds and provide shelter for livestock (mainly dairy cows). When the days are longer and the weather is warmer, the windbreak forests are popular with hikers and horseback riders. The forests gained new prominence in Japan after the spaceflights of the astronaut Mamoru Mohri in 1994 and 2000. Mohri is from Hokkaido, and in space, he was an enthusiastic observer and photographer of Earth. His photos brought new attention to some of the most beautiful and distinctive landscapes of the planet, especially Japan. (His 2000 mission was STS-99, which carried SRTM, a radar altimetry survey whose results are incorporated in Mapboxs elevation layer. Thanks, Dr Mohri!) Happy fall, northern hemisphere! Happy spring, southern hemisphere!
