About Earthzine

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  established  to  foster 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.
