About this guide

Weather and climatology encompasses a broad array of disciplines and a variety of information resources.  The collection of resources highlighted here represent only a small fraction of what is available both in print in the library and online through either library purchased resources or on the web.  Both current and historical information resources are highlighted.  While societal, economic, legal and policy issues related to weather and climate are important areas of study, this guide focuses  on scientific and technical information resources.  If you have questions, or would like to schedule a consultation to explore additional resources related to your specific research need, please contact me.

Finding Articles

Meteorological and climatological research articles may be located using databases like GeoRef, Web of Knowledge or Scopus,  by using a print index in the library, or by searching directly in e-journals like those published by the Royal Meteorological Society and the American Meteorological Society.
