Earthzine is an online source for news, articles, information and educational materials about Earth science, Earth observations and users of Earth information for the international Earth-observing community. Earthzine is updated regularly with news from around the world about the Earth, Earth observations, environmental policy, and new and emerging environmentally-friendly and earth-observing technologies.
Earthzine operates under the auspices of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and supports the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and its mission to integrate the world’s Earth observing systems into a Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS). GEO is an international organization with 96 Member Nations, the European Commission, and 87 Participating Organizations established to foster the international collaboration for Earth observations and utilization of Earth information. Earthzine is largely funded by grants through NASA as a contribution to GEO by the United States.
On Earthzine, you will find materials that are inspirational to new and future Earth observers and that promote greater awareness of the Earth through its observation. Earthzine encourages interaction of an on-line community of Earth observers and fosters the scholarly debate in essay and blogging competitions. To learn more about Earthzine, our goal and objectives, please see our current Strategic Plan.
On the full moon we publish our Newsletter with highlights of Earthzine news. Subscribe here. Share your comments about what you observe. If you would like to make a more sustained contribution, volunteer to be an editor, write an article, and recruit others to participate.
