Earth Science Picture of the Day
The Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) Web site serves as a valuable resource for students searching for an image to use in a paper or homework assignment, or just looking for a really cool picture.

A new photograph or image highlighting an interesting or unusual aspect of the Earth's system appears every day, from the breathtaking Santa Barbara sunrise to the power of Hurricane Isabel. Each picture is accompanied by a detailed description and related links. Search the archive by keyword or browse by field or topic.

EPOD is sponsored by NASA and administered by the Universities Space Research Association.
