This database is a comprehensive geoscience resource containing over 3.2 million bibliographic records covering subjects such as mineralogy and crystallography, general mineralogy, mineralogy of silicates, and mineralogy of non-silicates. Bibliographic records from more than 3,500 journals are included in the database as well as journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports, and theses. Over 100,000 references are added to the GeoRef database annually.
HighWire Press, a division of Stanford University Libraries, produces the online versions of high-impact, peer-reviewed journals and other scholarly content. The database offers access to the full-text of over 1,500 leading journals available from the journals' own sites for complete and accurate representation of the research at its source (including articles published online ahead of print, reference works, books, and proceedings); plus all of Medline -- with links to full text. Some journals offer completely free access, some offer free access to a range of back issues, and some offer free trial periods.
Open Science Directory is a tool for finding open access journals in science, medicine, and agriculture (among other fields). There are over 13,000 scientific journals on the OSD, the most important collections being Directory of Open Access Journals, BioMed Central, HighWire Press, and PubMed Central. Users can browse/search by journal title, subject, and keyword. Access to each journal's website is provided through the Open Science Directory.
Project Muse offers nearly 200 journal titles from some 30 scholarly publishers, covering the fields of literature and criticism, history, the visual and performing arts, cultural studies, education, political science, gender studies, economics, and many others. Project MUSE provides full-text access to a comprehensive selection of humanities and social sciences journals.
Dictionary of Geologic Terms
This resource provides access to a trove of material about major areas in the New York City Region (Highlands Province, Sedimentary Appalachians, Mesozoic Basins, Coastal Plain), Quaternary Geology, Basic Geologic Principles, and NYC's Physical Environment. Users can find detailed maps, illustrations, color photographs, as well as a lengthy list of secondary sources.
This multimedia site (subtitled "NASA's Eyes on the Earth") offers photos, movies, animations and interactive graphics as well as news and data from NASA's research into climate change.
This site provides a wide range of unique national, state, and local environmental information. Tabs at the top allow users to navigate through the EPA's abundant and complex information from a news, scientific, or legal perspective. "My Environment" enables the user to search for environmental information based on ZIP code and compiles data from other state and federal agencies to provide a comprehensive view of an area's environmental conditions.
The Library offers access to more than 30,000 color and black-and-white photographs taken during geologic studies of the U.S. These images provide a visual history of the discovery, development, and sciences of the United States and its Geological Survey. Some photographs have been used in USGS publications, but most have never been published.
C&EN Online is a weekly magazine published by the American Chemical Society. The journal covers topics such as science and technology, business and industry, government and policy, education, and employment aspects of the chemistry field. Coverage begins in 1998, and users can search or browse by archived issues.
Featuring categories such as Basics, Big Picture, Warning, Preparedness, and more, this site offers both basic and in-depth coverage of the earthquakes that create tsunamis, their warning systems, as well as providing preparation and hazard assessment information. The Education section provides resources for teachers and elementary students. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the government agency with primary responsibility for providing tsunami warnings to the United States.
This site, hosted by the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center, is not a monitoring service. Instead, Tsunamis & Earthquakes contains overview documents with details about recent earthquakes and resulting tsunamis since 1998, including a Research Studies section covering past events. Researchers can use this site to find basic information, animations, research studies, and analyses.
Climate Monitoring is a service of NOAA's National Climatic Data Center. It is divided into 12 sections, each offering links to reports, data, maps, and other resources.
This website is part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey, an effort of Federal and State agencies, universities, and professional societies to deliver science-based soil information. The organization provides links to information about geospatial research, soil surveys, soil data, and world soils. The NRCS site also features images, posters, maps, and charts, as well as a soil glossary.
Pathway to mineralogy and petrology sites.
NOAA's site provides copious and current information on weather alerts, graphical forecasts, national maps, radar, air quality, and satellite views. The site also allows users to find surveys, press releases, reports, and links to other organizations and offices, on topics such as Oceans, Fisheries, Climate, Research, and Coasts.
Included in this resource are a number of tutorials to help you learn how to use, process, analyze and understand Landsat data.
