page whenever possible. For example, an Advanced Search on the keyword index for the term China will take you
to the Country Portal for China. However, an Advanced Search using indexes other than those mentioned, or
using multiple indexes, will display a standard results list page, as described next. User's Guide: Global Geoscience Watch 17 The Standard Search Results Page
In some cases your search will not find a matching Portal, but the system will still display results matching your
search terms. This will occur most often when you are performing an Advanced Search using multiple indexes
and/or search limiters, when searching just the video content, or when searching just the news content. You may

that could be used in many contexts) or very specific (i.e., technical jargon).
Here is a partial view of a non-Portal results page showing the results of an Advanced Search query that used
