Prepared by the American Geological Institute as a resource for geological education, the Earth Science World Image Bank website features images by category, continent, country, or key word. For example, observe patterns of ripples in sand dunes at different location in the world. The resource section for teachers includes a PowerPoint presentation of Earth's Dynamic Surface as Viewed From Space.
The Earth Science World Image Bank is a resource made available to the geoscience community and general public for the purposes of enhancing Earth education, and serving the community of science that the American Geological Institute supports. This digital archive was released to the public in June 2003, after nearly a year of work acquiring, scanning, and indexing images. Photographers who have submitted images to the Earth Science World Image Bank acknowledge that the photos displayed here are acceptable for use in non-commercial venues.
