Engineering For Humanity Through GEOSS



Earthzine is an on-line publication for the international Earth-observing community that fosters Earth observation and global awareness. Earthzine is a contribution of the IEEE Committee on Earth Observation to the Group on Earth Observation in support of the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS). Earthzine serves as an arm for vitally-needed public outreach by providing information on the science and technology underlying Earth observations and the need and utility for Earth information.

Fostering Earth Observation & Global Awareness

As an on-line publication, 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.

In addition to these on-going updates, the site provides in-depth content on a quarterly theme supporting one of the nine societal benefit areas identified by GEOSS: Disaster Mitigation, Health, Energy, Climate, Water, Weather, Ecosystems, Agriculture and Biodiversity.

Our goal is to publish materials that are inspirational to new and future Earth observers and promote greater awareness of the Earth through its observation.
