GeoSpectrum is now the Geotimes Blog
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Alexandria, VA - The American Geosciences Institute is pleased to announce the relaunching of its GeoSpectrum newsletter as the Geotimes Blog. GeoSpectrum has evolved from a quarterly newsletter of the geoscience societies to a blog about activities in AGI's member societies and other news and events about the geosciences.
For decades, AGI's Geotimes magazine not only published features about geoscience, but was also the main source of information about the activities within the profession, including news from AGI's Member Societies, information about new books, maps and datasets, and insights into the interface of geoscience and policy. As Geotimes evolved into today's EARTH magazine, this inside information was then publishing through AGI's GeoSpectrum newsletter. But just as the magazine evolved, so is our delivery of the news of the profession, to an ongoing news blog by and for the geoscience profession, and we are bringing back the trusted name for news of the profession, Geotimes.
The Geotimes Blog covers: society news and events; stories from the geoscience-policy interface; geoscience workforce news; geoscience education and outreach events hosted by our organizations; award announcements; scholarship, fellowship and internship announcements; celebrations and passages. Additionally, we will announce new datasets, maps and books. Tagging will allow you to easily sort stories by theme. The Geotimes Blog is also available as an RSS feed.
We look forward to sharing the amazing work of our Member Societies and the geoscience community with you. To get up to date information about the geoscience community, go to www.americangeosciences.org/geotimes or subscribe to the RSS feed at www.americangeosciences.org/geotimes/rss.
The American Geosciences Institute is a nonprofit federation of geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 250,000 geologists, geophysicists and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in the profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resiliency to natural hazards, and interaction with the environment.
