ClimateWatch Magazine » Articles Climate.gov NOAA Climate Portal: Science and services for society. A very interesting web magazine that I was unfamiliar with until I ran across it today. Here are a few of the recent articles ClimateWatch Magazine » Summer weighing heavily on Greenland Ice Sheet References Hanna, E., Jones, J. M., Cappelen, J., Mernild, S.

I've only been through a couple of the articles so far but they seem well written, well referenced, and complete with a lot of additional resources bundled into each article. Looks like the start of a really good web-based science periodical.
