New Online Earthquake Photo Galleries

EERI is launching a fantastic new resource for members only--online photo galleries from many recent and important earthquakes. Included are galleries for over 30 earthquakes. Each gallery features from 30 to 300 images and all photos are searchable by keyword.

These initial galleries are only the beginning! EERI will continue to add new galleries and is working on a bulk download option and an improved search feature. In the next few months we will also add photos from the personal collection of Professor George Housner, one of EERI’s founding members. You can help us improve the site by contributing more photos, improving captions, identifying photographers, and providing feedback. Any comments should be sent to Chris Lee at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Access to these galleries will be through a new MEMBER RESOURCES AREA of the EERI website. To login and view the galleries, visit:

EERI would especially like to thank the EERI Graduate Interns who helped compile the galleries: Emmett Seymour, Stefanie Rae Arizabal, Chiara McKenney, Michael Germeraad, Mariana Chavez, Tammy Chang, Maggie Ortiz, Jonathon Tai, Hannah Gallagher, Chris Lee, and Patrick Bassal.
