Water Log 20.1
The Internet: Not Just for Surfing Anymore
Water Log E-Mail Service Available
For the last year, the Water Log Legal Reporter has been available in text and Adobe Acrobat format on the Legal Program website, http://www.olemiss.edu/orgs/masglp allowing visitors to access issues published over the last four years. Many subscribers have suggested, as a method to conserve both paper and shelf space, that an e-mail alert that the legal reporter is available would be sufficient.
As a result, the Legal Program is now offering a notice by e-mail that the latest issue of Water Log is available on the Internet. Subscribers interested in receiving a Water Log e-mail notice can either
. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the following:
Subscriber Name and E-mail address to which the notice should be sent.
Whether the subscriber would like to continue receiving paper issues of Water Log in addition to the e-mail.
Please note: subscribers who sign up for the e-mail notice will no longer receive paper issues unless specifically requested.
. Or, visit the Sea Grant Legal Program website (http://www.olemiss.edu/orgs/masglp) and complete the Water Log E-mail Service form that has a link on the main page.
The Internet is also a valuable tool in staying current regarding and having a voice in shaping, coastal and ocean policy. Most public notices are now available on the Internet at the Federal Register Site (http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/) and offer options to submit public comments over the Internet. Recent reports and rules available on the Internet include the following:
HYPOXIA in the Gulf
of Mexico - Drafts of the scientific reports developed by the National
Science and Technology Council address the extent of the hypoxic zone,
sources of nutrients, economic implications of hypoxia, and solutions.
