Geotimes is a free electronic newsfeed for the geoscience community. The American Geosciences Institute coordinates and edits Geotimes, but it is the result of contributed materials from societies, geoscience organizations and others in the community. Do you have a geoscience blog or newsfeed with an RSS feed? It may be a good fit for Geotimes. To learn more about RSS or to submit information to Geotimes by email, please contact Joe Lilek at firstname.lastname@example.org. Events can also be listed on the AGI Geoscience Calendar.
