Welcome to The Layered Earth

Group Description

Our premiere product, The Layered Earth is a unique and innovative software-based educational platform that uses both interactive lessons and photography to assist teachers and students with the geological exploration of our planet.

We're looking for photographic images which celebrate the remarkable diversity of our Earth's landforms -- especially in ways which illuminate or educate. We encourage all photographers to participate in this educational project. Share geological images that will inspire a student's imagination, clarify a complex subject, and make abstract concepts concrete.

Periodically we will select photos from the Flickr group pool for use in The Layered Earth project. Photographers will have their work credited, published in The Layered Earth and distributed to classrooms throughout the US and the World. We will notify you before your image is reproduced to get explicit permission.

On a daily basis, one picture of the day (POTD) will be selected and promoted in TheLayeredEarth Twitter and Facebook feeds. The Twitter and Facebook links will redirect followers back to your original image, in your flickrstream.

We would love content that illuminates the following areas of geological interest: the Earth’s interior, plate tectonics, landforms, earthquakes, volcanoes, minerals & rocks, and the concept of geological change over time. For search purposes, tag your images with relevant concepts/categories. And, please make sure your images are of high resolution.

Questions and feedback about The Layered Earth as well as general geological discussion is welcome in the forum.

Group Rules
