World Wind (Wiki), developed by NASA Ames Research Center, "lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there."
World Wind can overlay weather and national disaster information, zoom to street level via aerial photos or fly over topographic features in 3D.
Unfortunately, World Wind software is only available for Windows OS. Unlike Google Earth, NASA World Wind is open source.Added 3/7/06
Contact Carolyn Herder if you would use any of these journals on a regular basis, or suggest another journal for acquisition.
Laser Physics Letters : "...an international journal on theoretical and practical research in the field of lasers and photonics. The journal offers particularly rapid publication times for original manuscripts and brief overview papers. Laser Physics Letters provides you with a comprehensive overview of theoretical and experimental laser research and applications by top authors..."
Nature Methods : "...a forum for the publication of novel methods and significant improvements to tried-and-tested techniques in the life sciences and related area of chemistry. This monthly publication is aimed at a broad, interdisciplinary audience of academic and industry researchers actively involved in laboratory practice. It provides them with new tools to conduct their research and places a strong emphasis on the immediate practical relevance of the work presented."
Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. B, A Journal of Chemical Sciences : "...an international scientific journal which publishes original papers, microreviews, and letters from all areas of inorganic chemistry, solid state chemistry, coordination chemistry, molecular chemistry, and organic chemistry."
