Using the Climate Cloud Search

Specify your search terms in the simple search dialogue or use the detailed search.

Once the results are presented, you can

  • Refine the results as required using the refiners in the left hand column
  • Preview the documents
  • Download documents


 Simple Search

In the simple search you can enter one or more keywords.

This does a full text search on all document content and so will find the documents that contain all of the keywords you specify.  

Please note that the search works on complete words.  Using an asterisk at the end of a word will find all the words with your selection as the root. e.g., forest* would find documents containing the words forest, forests or forestry.


 Detailed Search

The detailed search allows you to find documents that have been classified by Sectors and/or Subjects. You may also specify free text search terms.

If you want to search by Sector or Subject, choose a term from the corresponding drop-down list. 

You may use both Sector and Subject if you wish.  Sector and Subject are using the classification properties assigned to the documents.

You may also enter free text search terms in the search box just like you can in the simple search.

Important:   Setting a subject or a sector  will only find results that are specifically coded for that subject or sector and will eliminate any more generic documents.


For example

This Search will find documents that contain the words water and stress and which have been classified as Sector = Sheep and Beef and Subject = Lower Rainfall.

The words water and stress could be anywhere in the document.

If you wanted to search on the phrase "water stress", you would enclose the phrase in quotes.
