Looming above the central Australian desert, Uluru carries scars from wind and water erosion and chemical weathering. At this new gallery from the American Geological Institute in Alexandria, Virginia, you can find many more shots that illustrate concepts in environmental science, geology, oceanography, climatology, and related disciplines. Free for teaching and research, the more than 1200 images in 39 categories range from glaciers sprawled across mountain valleys to satellite photos of the pollution-shrouded U.S. eastern seaboard to a wealth of beautiful minerals. Shutterbugs can contribute their own shots to the album.
