Welcome to the IRIS Image Gallery - a diverse collection of photographs and visuals that encompass the range and breadth of seismology and the seismological community.
Please browse through our albums. These low and medium-resolution images can be freely used for personal and educational/academic purposes, but we request you recognize the image contributor by including in your product or presentation the credit displayed with each image.
High-resolution (scale in meters) seismic cross section of a subsurface clay-bounded channel containing a dense, nonaqueous phase liquid contaminant. Black lines are the depth-migrated surface seismic reflection data. The reflection data and the red and yellow colors outline the contaminated channel in the center of the image. (Image from F.
