The Earth Sciences & Map Library has collections in climatology which include print and online books and journals on global climate change, atmospheric science, and meteorology. In addition, the library acquires climate atlases, maps, and data.
The Doe Library contains printed statistical climate data produced by various federal and foreign agencies. Reference librarians in Doe Library (floor 2), will provide assistance on finding specific information.
The Bioscience and Natural Resources Library collects information on bioclimatology, the effects of climate on agriculture and ecosystems, and climate change adaptation. Climate data for California (in relation to crops, soil and forestry) are of special importance.
