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.
Will you be starting a project from scratch that will require your attention for months, even years OR are you continuing a project started by somebody else?

Access up to $1,000 per article from the UCD Library toward publishing fees in fully open access journals.
Most literature databases provide a description of articles, or other literature resources, that allows you to find them among thousands of sources. However, there is often another step required to access a full text copy. This extra step is facilitated through the UCD E-links button, found on the item record.
Not all articles will be accessible directly from a database, as UCD E-links can only connect you to material licensed or owned by the library. However, we can borrow material from other libraries, if you put in an Interlibrary Loan request.
Watch how to make an Interlibrary Loan request for articles not available in the library collection.
