Climatology and Climate Change: Home

This is a guide to support the writing of a case study paper in Geography 320: Meteorology and Climatalogy. Students will select a significant weather event and research both the event itself as well as the impact of the event.

Geography 120, Geography 320, Geography 420

This guide is intended to support research in the Geography 120 (Global Climate Systems), Geography 320 (Weather Analysis), and Geography 420 (Climate Change: The Science and Impacts) courses. The sources listed in this guide are intended to help students with research papers and projects relating to weather and climate.

General Resources

If you are ready to jump right in, here are the main places to start:

  • Research@UWW - Find "Everything" (articles, books, & more)
    This discovery tool searches multiple resources simultaneously (articles, books, ebooks, videos, digital resources, government documents, etc.), or you can change from searching "Everything" to all our resources that are not articles by choosing i.e., Books, Media & more (UW Whitewater).
  • A-Z Databases List
    Online research databases available through the Library. Search these resources to find articles and other information on your topic, primarily in journals, magazines, and newspapers. Databases are available via the alphabetical listing, or sorted by broad subject area using the drop-down menus at the top.
  • Google Scholar
    Google Scholar can help you find both books and articles, but if you use Google Scholar from off campus, configure the settings to use Andersen Library's full text subscription access.
  • Journals
    Use this search to find out whether the Library owns a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper, as well as the dates and formats available. Search by periodical title, as opposed to article title.
