GeoRef Logo Databases

Every year I am contacting universities in the USA and Canada to submit information on Master’s and Bachelor’s theses and Doctoral dissertations for degrees in the geosciences, including soils, hydrogeology, marine geosciences, and environmental geology, so they can be indexed in the well-known GeoRef database. This year I hope to receive the degrees granted during 2019-2020. There is no deadline to submit them.
Send an email to ml@americangeosciences.org to submit them. Feel free to let me know who the point of contact in your department is.
Your continuing cooperation in this effort is very much appreciated.

It is with tremendous sadness that we pass on the news that Dennis Trombatore passed away on Saturday, July 18 after a long illness. Dennis was a long-time Geonet participant and the long-term Chair of the GeoRef Advisory Committee. His expertise and his wit will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. An eloquent tribute to Dennis has been posted on the University of Texas website at Dennis Trombatore.

Hurray! In 2019 GeoRef added 101,152 references to the most comprehensive bibliographic database for the geoscience literature of the world. GeoRef contains over 4 million references and continues to grow each month.

GeoRef now contains more than 4 million references to the world's geoscience literature. On July 11, 2018 GeoRef staff passed the 4 million reference mark. Since its development in the late 1960’s, the database has grown steadily – reaching its first million record in 1982. With the acceleration of scientific publishing, the last million records were added over a span of only 9 years.

We are happy to announce the relaunch of our complimentary online database Geologic Guidebooks of North America Database. It has a new search interface and addition of a geographic map-based search option. For further information visit Geologic Guidebooks of North America Database.

CanGeoRef launched September 15, 2011! It is another subset of the well-known database, GeoRef. CanGeoRef covers the geosciences literature of Canada and includes references to reports, books, maps, theses, conference proceedings and journal articles. Additional references to Provincial and Territorial Geological Surveys are being provided through collaboration between Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES) and American Geosciences Institute (AGI).
