If you are looking for a geophysics article, try GeoRef, the major geosciences database.
- Oceanic Abstracts
Citations to technical articles on physical oceanography, geology, meteorology, non-living resources, marine biology, fisheries, and aquaculture plus environmental, technological, and legislative topics.
- Academic Search Complete
A large general database containing citations to both popular and scholarly articles about an enormous range of topics (not just science!). Articles found from this database will likely be less specialized than those found in science-specific databases.
