A picture is more than just a thousand words. Photos can be used for a wide range of applications such as to interpret a geologic history, explore the mineralogical composition of a specimen, or to investigate processes that occur over time, such as the retreat of a glacier or the formation of a dune, and much more. The resources below provide guidance on effectively using photography in your geoscience classroom in a variety of settings.
