Two Landsat images from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Web site have been selected for use in a revised textbook, the fourth edition of Understanding Earth, by Frank Press, Raymond Siever, John Grotzinger, and Thomas H. Jordan.

Elyse Rieder, a photo researcher working for the publisher, W.H. Freeman, requested permission to use images of the Atchafalaya River Delta and the Mississippi River Delta in the book. Thanks to the legwork of Chris Cretini (National Wetlands Research Center, Lafayette, LA) and Renee Koenig (St. Petersburg Science Center, St. Petersburg, FL), permissions were obtained, and the USGS provided high-resolution files suitable for 1/4-page figures.

Publication is expected to run about 25,000 copies, which will be distributed worldwide.
