AtmosPeer

ProQuest has designed a new social network for researchers, academics, librarians and students in the atmospheric science community. AtmosPeer connects atmospheric scientists with colleagues, emerging research trends, current news feeds, conference information, and funding opportunities. It allows scholars to identify peers doing similar research and creates a simple method for document sharing and collaboration. It also includes background on current and upcoming conferences and a deep indexing tool that uncovers data and findings not only in the text, but in the tables and figures, too.
