AGI relaunches GeoSpectrum

10/12/05

To build a network among geoscience professionals

ALEXANDRIA, VA The American Geological Institute (AGI) announces the relaunch of GeoSpectrum. Formerly a newsletter about the activities of the Institute, GeoSpectrum now has been revamped into a quarterly electronic magazine (e-zine) with a new design, new medium and new purpose to cover news and information about the geoscience profession.

The new GeoSpectrum will be an outlet for AGI's Member Societies to share information with each other and the entire geoscience community. The goal of GeoSpectrum is to build a network among geoscience professionals - combining numerous backgrounds and varied specialties to work towards shared information and goals, something that is beneficial to us all.

The current issue of the new GeoSpectrum covers a diverse range of topics including a new exhibit at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY, a new website to encourage school-age girls to pursue careers as scientists, and a new endeavor to provide libraries with current lists of relevant geoscience publications. You will also find Member Society information, award winners, meeting recaps and the GeoCalendar, listing meetings, conferences, and events sponsored by various organizations and societies.

GeoSpectrum is a free e-zine that can be obtained by going to http://www.agiweb.org/geospectrum. Or, sign up to have it delivered as a PDF right to your email inbox.

This publication will be key for those interested in the happenings within the geoscience profession. If you have an article or information that you would like to submit to the magazine, please contact geospectrum@agiweb.org.
