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
Geosciences 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
