Geographical Sciences: Astronomy, Geology & Meteorology @ ScienceIndex.com

Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

ScienceIndex.com is a Web 2.0 sciences social network established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. The site has now included the Geographical Sciences which cover the physical characteristics of the earth including its surface features, and the distribution of life on earth. This main category is subdivided into the categories Astronomy, Geology and Meteorology. While the Astronomy category covers the physical characteristics of the earth including its surface features and the distribution of life on earth, the Geology category covers the origin, history, and structure of the earth, and the Meteorology category covers the phenomena of the atmosphere and especially weather and weather conditions.

ScienceIndex.com's Geographical Sciences Category covers the physical characteristics of the earth including its surface features, and the distribution of life on earth. Its three subsections include Astronomy, Geology and Meteorology. Users can receive alerts if new content has been posted in this category by subscribing to ScienceIndex.com's Geographical Sciences RSS feed.

ScienceIndex.com's Astronomy Sciences category covers the physical characteristics of the earth including its surface features and the distribution of life on earth. It currently contains 13,795 articles partly derived from 50 scientific journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Astronomy Sciences RSS feed. One of the latest additions covers a high spectral resolution, sub-milliarcsecond precision, spectroastrometric study of the circumstellar disc around the Be star β CMi.

ScienceIndex.com's Geology Sciences category covers the origin, history, and structure of the earth. It currently contains nearly 21,319 articles partly derived from almost 130 scientific journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Geology Sciences RSS feed. One recently included article in this category presents the development and evaluation of a hybrid approach to remote measurement of river morphology that combines LiDAR topography with spectrally based bathymetry. This fusion of LiDAR and passive optical image data provides an efficient means of characterizing river morphology that would not have been possible if either dataset had been used in isolation.

ScienceIndex.com's Meteorology Sciences category covers the phenomena of the atmosphere and especially weather and weather conditions. It currently contains 9,000 articles partly derived from nearly 40 scientific journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Meteorology Sciences RSS feed. One of the latest additions covers the variability of 210Pb, 7Be and 10Be in coastal Antarctic aerosol samples based on continuous, monthly and annually resolved time series obtained from Neumayer Station over the period 1983 to 2008. The authors conclude that both, changes in the meridional transport and surface inversion strength appear to drive the seasonal 210Pb cycle, which generally peaks in November. In contrast, stratospheric air mass intrusions are proved to be the main reason for the Be-isotopes seasonality.

ScienceIndex.com currently contains almost 1.45 million stories distributed among 75 categories. 75,896 users monitor nearly 8,400 journals covering the broad spectrum of sciences. They share circa 2,500 new articles every day. Since new science content is discovered in real-time, the delay between original publication and appearance at ScienceIndex.com is no more than two days. ScienceIndex.com provides an advanced search feature which suggests up to ten closely related articles for a search and also for a selected story. Other features include a "Life Traffic Feed", a "Top Content" sidebar, Google Translate functionality, and RSS feeds for every category. ScienceIndex.com also maintains the new Twitter account @ScienceIndex_.
