Earth and Atmospheric Sciences: Articles and Databases

Where to Start

The first step finding published material on your topic is to use a finding aid like the databases to the left.  If you are unsure where to start, below is a quick guide to the databases to the left (for more information about a database click the information icon next to the title).

The second step is identifying a source for the material that you find.  With full-text resources, this may be the same tool as you used in step one.  For others, the FindIt@GT Link or button FindIt@GT can allow you to identify whether the resource is available electronically, in print, or if you may need to request it through another library.

Primary Databases for Academic Articles:

  1. GeoRef - the premier database for geosciences with coverage of North America from 1785 and coverage of the world from 1933.
  2. Advanced Technologies and Aerospace Database - subject areas include Meteorology, Climatology, and Oceanography and Geophysics and Earth Resources
  3. INSPEC - the premier database for all areas of physics research, including meterology, geophysics, atmospheric dynamics   
  4. Web of Science - an interdisciplinary database for science, useful features include advanced citation analysis.

Primary Databases for Technical  Reports:

  1. NTIS - Useful for searching government reports including reports of U.S. agencies like NOAA, NASA, as well as reports from international organizations and other governments
  2. NTRS - NASA technical report server, useful especially for technical reports on NASA Earth Observing System (EOS)

The links below begin with a link to the GT Library eJournal page an excellent starting place to search for a journal title and to identify its availability to the GT community.

Following that link are subject links to open-access journals that relate to Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

Finally, several individual open-access journals are highlighted.  Please send me an email, or leave a comment below if you have other open-access favorites that you would like to share on this guide.
