New Image Gallery Debuts on IRIS Web Site

Need an image of a seismometer or scientists installing instruments at a site in Antarctica for your upcoming class presentation? The IRIS Image Gallery may have just the image you need!

The IRIS Image Gallery is a diverse collection of photographs and visuals that encompass the range and breadth of seismology and the seismological community from sensors and maps, to field experiments and classroom activities, to conferences and other events. It has been designed as an easy-to-use resource for seismologists, educators and the general public. The low- and medium-resolution images in the IRIS Image Gallery can be freely used for personal and educational/academic purposes. Many high resolution images are also available and may be requested by completing a simple on-line form.  . 

Please browse through the Image Gallery! It consists of albums organized by category, activity or theme, and features tags and search capabilities that help the user find the perfect image. On the Image Gallery home page, the most recent image added to the collection and a "Best of IRIS" image are highlighted. The user can also go directly to a specific album by selecting that album from the drop-down menu.

This initial population of around 250 images is just the start. Image submittals from the seismological community are encouraged and will help make this searchable repository a first-class site for seismology-related images. We welcome your feedback on how to make the IRIS Image Gallery most useful.
