If the images are already hosted by the sites you mention, and automatically update themselves using the same file names, ask them for permission to "link" their images into your page.  Otherwise, you will have to devise some sort of method of checking the page, looking for the image, download it to your server, and then serve it on your page.

Yea, the images can be linked to by using the image reference: http://oiswww.eumetsat.org/SDDI/html/images/out/SDDI-20060724-0800-RGB-08-DUST-00-800.jpg.  I right clicked on the image, and selected properties.  And yes, if they require a disclaimer to be included when the image is used, the you can put it at the bottom of the image.
