IEEE Earthzine is a free, open access, online publication for communicating developments and community interests pertaining to studying the Earth and its many bodies of water. Our publication fosters communication among professionals, researchers, academia and the general public through its focus on interdisciplinary observational sciences, technologies, applications of Earth information and their many benefits to society. The publication operates under the auspices of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and is largely funded by grants through NASA as a contribution to GEO by the United States.
Paul Racette: By day, I’m an engineer at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center where I design and build microwave instruments and develop new technologies. I’m a parent of two teenage daughters that keep me running here and there. And by night, I masquerade as an editor of this publication called IEEE Earthzine. I say I masquerade as the editor of this outreach publication because actually I’m very shy and I’m happy to be working behind the scenes supporting a small staff that’s not afraid to put their names and faces out there in working with OES members, and the Earth observing community.
