The most important databases in Earth Sciences are listet below and here you can find a complete list over relevant databases. If you are off campus and click the following links, you will first be directed to a log on screen for the UiB proxy server, to get access even though you're outside the UiB network.
Geofacets is a database with a geographical search interface that gives access to over 1.5 million georeferenced maps, figures and tables from peer-reviewed Earth Science publications. You can directly download georeferenced files to use them in GIS, Petrel or view them in GoogleEarth.
You find a presentation from the Geofacets Seminar at the Department of Earth Science, 22.03.2017, at the bottom of this page.
Multidisciplinary information from about 8,500 journals from Science Citation Expanded®. With cited reference searching, users can navigate forward and backward.
GeoRef contains references within earth science, and covers the fields of mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, geology, engineering, petrology, oceanography, paleontology, geophysics, seismology, hydrology and geopmorphology. The database covers abstracts of scientific papers, books, theses, reports and maps.
The database gives an overview of printed bedrock and quaternary maps of Norway. The interactive net based maps cover the following topics: bedrock, area planning (Arealis), gravel, minerals, groundwater, avalanches (skrednett), marine areal (Mareano), as well as geophysics, internationally and of the Norwegian shelf.
The database contains references to publications, reports/maps from the mining archive and reports on Norwegian geology. The database consists of several sub-bases: NGU-reports, articles in NGU-publications, maps, master- and doctorate theses in earth sciences, articles from Norsk Geologisk Tidsskrift, other geological literature, geological maps and field data.
AccessScience is a web-based edition of McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology. This reference work covers the natural sciences, technology, mathematics and statistics, and contains overview articles over various topics, short biographies of well-known scientist, and a dictionary with explanations of scientific terms.
You can find various atlases in the Science Library either under UBBRB 912 or in the ‘verdensrommet’.
Maps - Norway
Bedrock maps over Norway are located under UBBRB Box 554.81.
You can also find various geological maps online from the Geological Survey of Norway (Norges geologiske undersøkelse-NGU)
These maps are also available online from http://www.norgeskart.no. You can download the maps in different scales (N2000-N50) and formats (raster and vector) from http://data.kartverket.no/download. The service is free but you have to register. (Guide to open and free goespatial data from norway) You can also find information about boarders and districts on this webpage.
The Norwegian Polar Institute has maps over norwegian polar regions such as Svalbard or Jan Mayen.
Maps about the bathmetry and seabad of norwegian coastal regions can be alo found at mareano.no
Many countries offer similar services as the Geological Survey of Norway.
