About EarthCurrent

This service is designed to keep you informed about research and news in the arena of science and the environment. EarthCurrent is published twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday mornings; its availability is announced for NGS staff on the NG Connect home page. Topics covered will include archaeology and paleontology, environment, medicine and health, natural disasters, weather, and climate; peoples and cultures, people and places in the news; plants and animals; science and technology, and space.

Most hypertext links in these digests link to full-text of news releases, wire stories, and news and magazine articles on the Web. You may search or browse previously published editions, but be aware that many links have a limited life of two weeks from publication date (or less), which will reduce the value and utility of older digests. Some sites require free-registration. Some require a userid and password.
