A represent from the databases Geobase and Georef is invited to show how to make the best of the two databases. Geobase is a multidisciplinary coverage of Earth Sciences, Ecology, Geology and Geography and other topics in an indexed research database. The GeoRef database, established by the American Geosciences Institute in 1966, provides access to the geoscience literature of the world.

 It is the most comprehensive database in the geosciences.

GEOBASE

Coverage of literature on human and physical geography, geology, geosciences, geomechanics, ecology, international development and oceanography.Millions of references to journal articles, conference papers, books and trade publications.GEOBASE is indexed specifically for geographers and geoscientists using the GEOBASE Thesaurus making search results consistently accurate and relevant.Includes a unique mapping tool using Google Maps technology to put results into a geographic context.

GeoRef

Coverage of literature on economic geology, geophysics, petrology, environmental geology, geochemistry, stratigraphy, hydrogeology/hydrology, structural geology and engineering geologyMillions of refences to geoscience journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports and theses.GeoRef is indexed specifically for geoscientists using the GeoRef thesaurus, making search results consistently accurate and relevant.Includes a unique mapping tool using Google Maps technology to put results into a geographic context.

With GEOBASE and GeoRef, Geographers and geoscientists get full access to powerful search features and tools to help save time, locate critical information and stay current.
