General Information Resources
The following resources provide introductions to topics in weather and climatology, definitions, and more.
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.

Meteorological and climatological research articles may be located using databases like GeoRef, Web of Knowledge or Scopus or by using a print index in the library.
