Earth, Atmospheric & Aquatic Science Database
The Earth, Atmospheric & Aquatic Science Database includes the renowned Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA), Oceanic Abstracts, and the Meteorological & Geoastrophysical Abstracts (MGA) for climate sciences. It provides full-text titles from around the world, including scholarly journals, trade and industry journals, magazines, technical reports, conference proceedings, and government publications. The database includes specialized references and resources studying the critical issues affecting Earth’s air, land, and water environments. Coverage is from 1950 - present.
Meteorological & Geoastrophysical Abstracts (MGA)
This database covers over 600 journals, as well as books & conference proceedings, on meteorology, climatology, air pollution, astrophysics, atmospheric chemistry & physics, physical oceanography, hydrology, glaciology, and weather forecasting, from 1950s to present.
Inspec indexes and abstracts over 4200 journals & over 2000 conference proceedings as well as books and technical reports in physics, electronics, & computing including climatology, geophysics, physical oceanography, instrumentation, ocean acoustics, computers, electronics, etc., back to 1898.
Web of Science
Good for "overall" coverage of science topics. WOS covers over 12,000 journals from 1900 to present. Use the MGA database, above, for more in-depth and stronger coverage of climate topics. Article references include "Times cited" information and links.
The UC San Diego Library's "Databases A-Z" listing is a comprehensive list of journal article (abstracting and indexing) databases, in all fields, available for your use.
