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.
The global reach of seismology is exemplified by this map of the distribution of high-quality broadband “backbone” seismic stations of the International Federation of Digital Seismograph Networks (FDSN), which includes the IRIS/USGS Global Seismographic Network (GSN). (Image courtesy of R. Butler.)
