GHRC Micro Articles

What is a Micro Article?

Micro articles are concise and focused selections of information that allow users to quickly assess topics and locate the most useful or relevant associated data, information and tools. The GHRC Library includes six types of micro articles: specific weather events, phenomena, Earth observing instruments, applications, field campaigns, and summaries of scientific research publications referencing GHRC data. Each micro article includes pointers to related data, user resources and tools available from the GHRC archive.
