After scirus is closed, which search engine do you all use?

I know of Arxiv, and ADS, which only partially overlaps with Earth Science related issues. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

    $\begingroup$ Would like to hear about what functionality/features of a search engine you found useful. There is an ongoing project "EarthCube" that is focused on managing Earth Sciences information. Communicate with Community Inventory and Broker groups. I'm involved with the Inventory. $\endgroup$ – david valentine Apr 30 '14 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ In text search of pdf / ps files, and support of search with synonyms/ equivalent wording - by that I mean, if I , e.g. write "forcasting of weather", I would appreciate if "weather prediction" is also included - that is, inclusion of other linguistic forms of search terms. Finally, multiple languages would be great - German and English, for example would really double my field of view. $\endgroup$ – Sean Apr 30 '14 at 18:15

    $\begingroup$ Scirus redirects to Science-Direct which searches the same journals. But of course that leaves away all other publishers. Google-Scholar does a pretty good job of searching all journals. $\endgroup$ – tobias47n9e Apr 30 '14 at 18:33

The Elsevier service Geofacets "is designed to search for, and extract, maps, sections and other geographically-referenced geoscientific data from a very large and growing volume of published content", and as such is perhaps relevant -- though it focusses on georeferenced data rather than on scientific articles.

I normally use Google Scholar, but Elsevier also has the non-public Scopus (which means I have to use a campus proxy). Also CiteSeerX but the semantic side is not as rich.
