The library periodically receives journal sample issues for evaluation. We encourage our users to consider whether these journals would be a good addition to the library collection based on Boulder Labs research. These journals are displayed at both the Main and Branch libraries, right next to the New Books (see photo). Please stop by or view the links below and email us with your thoughts.
High Energy Density Physics
An international journal covering original experimental and related theoretical work studying the physics of matter and radiation under extreme conditions. 'High energy density' is understood to be an energy density exceeding about 1011 J/m3... more
High Frequency Electronics
A professionally-edited trade magazine that covers: High Speed Analog and Digital Electronics, Radio-Frequency Technology, Microwave Technology, mm-wave Technology, Lightwave Technology, and Communication Systems... more
Devoted to mathematical aspects of managing large databases, this journal publishes research papers that address fundamental problems, both conceptual and algorithmic, that arise in dealing with large complex information networks such as the Internet. Broad in scope, the journal will allow for flexible adjustment to the evolving needs that arise in real-life applications and the theoretical foundations... more
The Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) is "the only U.S. based membership organization of working journalists dedicated to improvements in environmental reporting." SEJ developed a special reporters' online resource guide: Climate Change: A Guide to the Information and Disinformation.
ClimatePolicy, created by the American Meteorological Society, discusses "topics that span scientific understanding, impact assessment, policy analysis, and the value judgments that shape people's policy preferences."

The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) is the largest central resource to maintain and disseminate scientific, technical, engineering, and business-related information produced for and by U.S. government agencies.
The NTIS database (ntis.gov/search) contains over 3 million items including audiovisual materials, data, and software.
Over 1,000 items are added weekly. The database was recently extended back to 1964. In addition, the search has been enhanced to refine by categories, collections, and source agencies.Added 2/22/08
The U.S. Geological Service (USGS) recently launched two sites:
TerraLook allows users to create their own collections of georeferenced JPEG satellite images created from Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and Tri-Decadal Global Landsat Orthorectified. TerraLook serves GIS, natural resource management, education, and other communities, and provide easily accessible remotely-sensed data. TerraLook images are designed for visual interpretation and display, and are of value to anyone who wants to see the changes to the Earth's surface over the last 30 years.
See: How to Use Terralook and Global Visualization Viewer.
Map Locator and Downloader, a Web tool designed to deliver topographic maps easier, faster and less expensively than before. Using open source software and the Google Maps programming interface, it allows users to find the topographic maps they need, by searching zip code, address, or navigating on an interactive map
TEMIS (Tropospheric Emission MonitoringInternet Service) measures and maps concentrations and transboundary movements of emissions through their Air pollution monitoring site. It contains data for tropospheric ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2), among other pollutants. Most data goes back as far as 2002. Access near-real time satellite images and download data into Google Earth, which will project the images onto the globe in a series of short films.
Natural Earth - New Layer for NASA's World Wind. Natural Earth is a world physical map at 1.24 km resolution. Made primarily from data and imagery collected by NASA satellites and graphically enhanced by the NPS, Natural Earth is a base for general mapmaking. The combination of shaded relief and landcover colors brings the physical world to life.
UN Environmental Programme Maps and Graphics Library contains a wealth of visual scientific data, including:
