NOAA offers new service in technical information


  • Anonymous


A new service known as Oasis (Oceanic and Atmospheric Scientific Information System) has been announced by the Technical Information Division (TID) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The service offers computer searches of citations to published literature and references to research in progress or recently completed in the fields of atmospheric, marine, and earth sciences and of marine resources. Data bases that can be searched by making a request to the TID include both NOAA and non-NOAA bibliographic files. Current awareness (periodic search for new information) as well as one-time retrospective searches (everything available to date) are offered.
