Earthquake & Natural Disaster Image Galleries
- Earthquake Engineering Online Archive
- A database of publicly-funded research and development literature, photographs, data, and software in earthquake, structural, and geotechnical
engineering, including full text for EERC, SEMM, and PEER reports published at UC Berkeley, the NISEE software library, and images from EQIIS. Search tip: select Images

- FEMA Photo Library
- With a collection of more than 16,500 disaster-related photographs dating back to 1989, the FEMA online photo library offers images from hurricanes,
tornadoes, floods, typhoons, fires, earthquakes, avalanches, and more. Numerous search fields - including keyword, location, photographer, category (with drop-down menu), and
date range – allow detailed searching. The entire collection is public domain, which allows public use without associated copyright issues.
- Godden Structural Engineering Slide Library
- Site offers an Introduction to the collection; a search function that allows browsing by set; a collection indexed by country, city and structure; and
material organized in these structure categories: beam; arch; cable and suspension; truss; domes and shells; columns, frames, grids, slabs and construction.
- Life Image Gallery
- Millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, dating from the 1750s to today, are now available through the joint work of LIFE and Google. Search tip:
add source:life to any Google image search to search only the LIFE photo archive (e.g. earthquake source:life)
- MCEER Information Service (IS) has digitized its vast slide collection, but it is not available online at this time. Please
contact IS for assistance. The collection covers a range of topics including: post-earthquake damage from Kobe 1995,
Northridge 1994, Loma Prieta 1989, Mexico City 1985, Duzce 1999, El Quindio 1999; liquefaction; nonstructural damage; lifeline engineering; social sciences, architectural,
urban planning and geotechnical issues related to earthquake damage; faults; seismic creep; several tsunami sets, including the Hokkaido Tsunami of 1993; hurricanes, typhoons
and volcanoes; and more.
- NOAA National Environment Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS)
- NESDIS provides timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources.
- NOAA Photo Library
- The NOAA collection includes thousands of weather and space images, hundreds of images of our shores and coastal seas, and thousands of marine species
images. The geographic range of NOAA work encompasses polar region to polar region and much of the World's oceans. NOAA personnel could be chasing tornadoes, flying into
hurricanes, battling stormy seas, tagging turtles and whales, taking scientific readings at the South Pole, or monitoring the health of coral reefs.
- U.S. Geological Survey Photographic Library
- This USGS website contains 30,000 photographs from 1868 to the present and includes a basic, keyword searchable interface. One area of particular
interest is the Earthquakes section, which is organized alphabetically by earthquake event.
