Searching news sources
The large news organisations usually cover major events and discoveries in science. Since their reports are aimed at a wide audience, the language is often easy to understand and such reports can be a quick way of getting a clear overall view of many science topics. However, don┤t be satisfied with this only: look for further information in the other GEO. resources. Online news coverage includes text as well as images and audiovisual displays.
Remember, earth science news can come from almost anywhere - don┤t neglect these sources.
