AbstractPresents a critical evaluation of Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts ({MGA)}, a bibliographic index to articles on meteorology, astrophysics, geophysics, and related fields. Compares the source title coverage of {MGA} with eight databases that overlap with the subject areas covered in {MGA.} Examines titles unique to {MGA} as to document type, language, subject area, and whether they contain peer-reviewed articles. Also considers changes made to {MGA} in 2002, with the move to Cambridge Scientific Abstracts.
