Michael King EOS Senior Project Scientist

I’m pleased to announce the availability of the new EOS Project Science Office web site, the primary science and education reference site for the EOS program. We have upgraded the look, content, and usability of the site to better serve the EOS community. This complete redesign clearly distinguishes information intended for science users, education users, news media, and the general public. New additions of note are the EOS Message Boards, EOS Web Newsletter, and weekly EOS news stories and research highlights covering the status of our missions and new research accomplished under the auspices of EOS. The site also includes a new interface for searching the EOS Directory, with more robust query capabilities for the 6700+ entries in the database. The EOS Reference Handbook, Data Products Handbook, Science Plan, mission profiles, and the entire archive of Earth Observer Newsletters are available. The new EOS Project Science Office web site is a valuable resource for the EOS community and...
