NOAA Photo Library

NOAA Central Library

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) photo library contains thousands of images, divided into topical collections such as severe storms and weather (lightning, hail, tornados, clouds, Doppler radar), space (satellites, launches), undersea themes (coral, animals, coastlines, fisheries, marine sanctuaries), animals (polar bears, seals, walrus, birds, caribou, whales), flight, and historical images. The collections are browsable or searchable by keyword. The photos are downloadable and include date, photographer, and location, when available. Most also have a high-resolution version.
