Browsing Earth Science Topics

Looking for an Earth science topic to research? The “Gale in Context-Science” database provides a helpful list of topics related to Earth and environmental sciences. Here is how to access it:

  • Go to Gale in Context-Science "Browse Topics" page
  • Locate the "Topics" drop-down list near the top left of the page, and select "Earth and Environmental Science" from the list. This will filter the topics on the page to just those related to Earth and environmental science.
  • Browse the list for topics that interest you! Each topic is "clickable", meaning users may click on a topic to find out more about it.
