Computer-Based Storage and Retrieval of Geoscience Information: Bibliography 1970-72.
Burk, C. F., Jr.
The publication of papers describing activity in computer-based storage and retrieval and geoscience information has continued at a vigorous pace since release of the last bibliography, which covered the period 1946-69 (ED 076 203). A total of 211 references are identified, nearly all of which were published during the three-year period 1970-72 inclusive. The objectives of the present compilation remain identical to those of the 1946-69 edition: Worldwide coverage; identification of papers describing the use of computers and/or computer-readable records for storage and retrieval of information in the solid-earth sciences; and identification of works of direct assistance to this activity. The field of remote sensing, which has emerged as a major user of computer-based information systems during the past few years, has been largely excluded from this compilation, as have papers in the fields of hydrology and oceanography. Six indexes precede the bibliography: Geoscience discipline and/or topic, Information aspect, System name and acronym, Nation, Organization (origin of work), and Author. (Author/SJ)
