A “Current Topics” section which will have current relevant news and a link to our “technical bulletins” section more information about it. An example of this might be a section that is able to scroll horizontally with the a bold title acting as the link with a brief description next to it.
Page 2 - Content Page:
We would like for this page to basically be a template for which we could use for all of our various pages. It should fit in well with the style of the home page, but does not need to be as graphic, and also embody elements of both science and the environment. Information and navigation should be clear and easy to use.
Page 3 - Discussion/Multimedia Page:
This page will basically be the front page for all of Jones Environmental media information. It should include a visually pleasing design that fits in with the rest of the site, and allow for us to post links to our blog pages as well as have a separate sections which will allow us to display youtube videos (not actually play youtube videos on this page, but display a few thumbnails with information that we will link to the actual video).
