	On behalf of the Earth Observing System (EOS) Project Office, I would 
like to propose the creation of a new moderated newsgroup named SCI.EOS.  
This newsgroup would be used by the Earth Observing System Distributed 
Information System (EOSDIS) community for the sharing of EOS related 
information.  It would include postings of "The Processor" and the "The 
Earth Observer" newsletters which are periodicals containing timely EOS news 
events and information on up-coming meetings.  The newsgroup would also 
contain information regarding new data sets, and other important EOS 
related material.   There are currently hundreds of scientists around the 
world involved with the EOSDIS and this would be a great forum for their 
sharing of ideas.

	Although the EOSDIS Project covers a broad spectrum of the NASA
community, covering many scientific disciplines, we plan to begin
with a single newsgroup (SCI.EOS).  Depending on the usage of
SCI.EOS, sub-newsgroups may be created.

	As proposed by the EOS Project, this newsgroup (SCI.EOS) would 
be moderated by an EOS Project Office representative.

This is a formal request for the creation of a new newsgroup 
be called sci.geo.eos

NAME - sci.geo.eos

STATUS - unmoderated

CHARTER - 
NASA's Earth Observation System (EOS) is a publicly funded 
research program studying the dynamics of the Earth's 
atmosphere, land, and oceans.  EOS will be using public 
networks to increase accessibility of data by scientists.

To support the wide community of potential researchers 
accessing EOS-obtained data, the Internet will be relied 
upon to be the main conduit of networked communications
nationaly and world-wide.

Sci.geo.eos is intended to be used by all interested parties
concerned with NASA's Earth Observation System (EOS). The EOS 
project is an immensely complex and far reaching endeavor, and this 
newsgroup will be used for the exchange of ideas and information 
regarding the function and operation of EOS. Sci.geo.eos is intended
to be a top level umbrella with the potential for many sub-groups
pertaining to more specific topics such as the EOS Distributed Information
System (EOSDIS), specific instruments and missions, etc. This forum 
will provide a repository for information impacting EOS system users, 
administrators, and managers. This newsgroup is intended to provide 
a mechanism for current Usenet users to acquire EOS project specific 
information.


DISCUSSION - 
Discussion of this proposal will take place on news.groups starting at 
the time of this posting and lasting 30 days.

VOTE - 
A Call for Votes will be conducted by a neutral third party


CROSSPOSTING - 
The RFD is crossposted in the following groups:
     news.announce.newgroups
     news.groups
     sci.geo.geology

Rationale - 
The rationale was discussed in the charter section. 
Currently there is no means for EOS users with Usenet 
feeds to access EOS project related information. This 
group will provide that means. This is one step in 
integrating network developments in the effort to reach 
the widest community possible.  EOS will also be tied into 
the World Wide Web, Gopher and provide anonymous FTP
service.
