Climate Science has many facets. This guide focuses on available scientific and technical resources related to global climate change and its effects, meteorology, and atmospheric science. A vast number of government agencies and organizations around the world collect and provide data, mapping, and other information, often freely available. Sites that provide significant numeric and GIS data are indicated with a database icon.
Choosing an index database for climate and atmospheric science depends on what aspects of the topic you're looking for. Google Scholar and Web of Science are the most general in nature. Inspec, Compendex and GeoRef (which can be searched in tandem on the Engineering Village platform) cover the widest array of relevant technical literature including conferences and reports.
The Web of Science platform currently also provides temporary access to several databases that are not part of the Core Collection, including Biosis Citation Index, Data Citation Index, and Zoological Record.
Use this link to access Google Scholar, and see our Google Scholar Guide for information on using this resource.
If you encounter a warning about the security certificate when using the FindIt@UT tool in Google Scholar, you can learn more about that using this guide.
