Earth Science World Image Bank
If you want to go around the world via thousands of visually stimulating and engaging photographs, this is a good place to start. Provided by the American Geological Institute (AGI), the Earth Science World Image bank website contains over 6,000 images related to the geophysical sciences for use by educators, the public, and the geoscience community.
The photos are contained within a few dozen categories, which include coal, dinosaurs, and paleontology. Visitors can also use the Browse Images link to move around the collection. Each image includes a brief description, along with related information, such as the photographer. Users will find that the archive is updated frequently and return visits will be obligatory.
