Extensions to the printed NSS News
What is this page all about?This is a new idea I came up with to "extend" the printed NSS News. Categories of things I expect to appear here will include:
The URL for these items will be referenced in the News issue which relates to it. Currently I plan to leave the material here indefinitely.

May 2013 issue: Detailed map of the OZ Quad from Lechuguilla Cave, New Mexico, to accompany the article on its exploration by Derek Bristol and John Lyles (7.5 mb PDF).
April 2013 issue: The sidebar of WNS references from page 13 with clickable links.
August 2012 issue: Labeled map of the Green Link-MIddle Earth Cave System, NZ, to accompany the article by Neil Silverwood in that issue (546 kb PDF).
